Jordan Harris’s Elite Prospects Stats Page


A smart smooth skating two-way defenceman that isn’t afraid to carry the puck end to end. He’s always active jumping into the rush or pinching in from the point to create another outlet or lane for his teammates. Harris uses his quickness and agility to close gaps or force the offensive player in low scoring chance positions. He’s extremely effective at exiting the zone via the first pass or using his excellent acceleration to hit center ice. Harris’ footwork is top-notch, his edges are crisp as he can effortlessly turn on a dime and explode up ice. He shows some good vision and reads the play really well both offensively and defensively. He often doesn’t make high-risk blueline to blueline passes but when he does it’s tape to tape. Defensively Harris is extremely efficient, great ability to read and anticipate the opponent’s next move while keeping his head on a swivel. His stick work is excellent, whether it be a quick stick lift, breaking cross-seam passes or simply positioning his stick to direct the player to the perimeter. Harris doesn’t have a heavy or dangerous release but he is a plus player at finding the lane through traffic. – JD

“Another new age smaller defender with quick head, feet, and puck-handling ability. Quick and decisive with the biscuit. His deft stick-handling and puck management get him high marks despite playing against competition.” – (

“A puck-moving blueliner, he is an elite skater, smoothly flying from zone to zone – even with the puck. He owns excellent end-to-end speed and isn’t shy about using it. He always keeps his feet moving. Speed, clearly, is his biggest asset. His stickhandling skills are that good. He transitions the puck extremely well – and fast.” – (Future Considerations)

“Harris is a smooth-skating, puck-moving defenseman with limited offensive upside. At the prep level, Harris was able to dominate puck possession. There were multiple games, even against good competition, where Harris seemed to have the puck on his stick for the majority of the game.” – (Hockey Prospect)
