Aaron Vickers

A smart and talented puck moving defenseman. A very skilled puck distributor who has excellent vision and offensive creativity. Transitions the play very quickly and makes crisp, accurate breakout passes. Likes to skate with the puck and is elusive in doing so despite not possessing great speed. Sometimes he can be caught jumping up when he should be staying back but he competes hard and wants to win. A real effective quarterback on the power play despite lacking the heavy point shot. Has a quick stick and some dangle to his game which is displayed when he tries to enter the offensive zone. Reads the play well and is a danger to create every time on the ice. Has outstanding hockey sense and is one of the best passes available. Lacks strength and can get beat defensively by stronger opponents. (May 2011)
