Alexandre Goulet

Aaron Vickers

A developing two-way forward who really caught re as the year progressed. Goulet has a lot of power to his game, and is not afraid of the physical aspect. He is very effective in tight and uses his strength well. Not a plus skater, but has a powerful stride and his lateral mobility isn’t a concern. Great compete level in both ends, backchecks very hard. Very good in the faceoff circle; just a rock solid two-way player. Big frame, plays a very quietly solid game without much fanfare like Patrice Bergeron. Flashes quick hands and is dangerous on offensive opportunities around the net. Not by any means explosive, but smart and very strong on the puck. Beautiful shot with an impressive release. Very high hockey IQ; love his approach when pursuing the puck. Progression and development has been tremendous this year. (May 2014)
