Andrei Svechnikov

Aaron Vickers

Svechnikov is an electrifying, dangerous, offensive winger…confident shoot-first mentality…explosive skater with plenty of horsepower underneath the hood to explode…smooth and powerful stride as a larger player, but has the quickness and footspeed of a much smaller player…solid offensive smarts and understanding of position…possesses edge-of-your-seat puck skills…unpredictable…can dangle around or power through opponents on his way to the net…uses his size and wingspan to protect the puck from opposing defenders…a scoring threat anywhere in the offensive zone due to his lightning quick release and hard, accurate shot…can be a real beast along the wall, either when he’s protecting the puck or trying to work himself into a better area on the ice…strong in puck pursuit and on the forecheck…willing to physically lean on opponents to gain position…goes to the gritty areas and thrives in traffic…he wants the puck on his stick…has near-unlimited potential and could very well develop into an All-Star with top-line goal-scoring potential.
