Take a look at some of the highlights and a breakdown from LaCombe’s 2018-2019 season from a great Twitter thread.
Jackson LaCombe is one of the most exciting defenders in the 2019 draft. High-skill passer, finding targets in and across the slot on both the forehand and backhand with consistency. Passes with speed and pace; finds targets in stride. Weak competition, sure, but he's so dynamic. pic.twitter.com/tzaWvXyorg— Mitch Brown (@MitchLBrown) June 20, 2019
