Anthony Beauvillier

Aaron Vickers

Beauvillier is that small and pesky type of offensively oriented player who is always in close
proximity to the puck when on the ice. Works hard and shows a good compete level; does many
of the little things right in addition to creating offense and playing a tight defensive game. Always
looking to make an impact regardless of what zone he is in, whether it is blocking shots or driving
the net looking for garbage to bang in. He is a speedy guy, is very shifty and moves around
the ice with a nice, quick stride. Showed some good jam on the forecheck and while not being
very physically imposing, he helps his cause by taking good routes to the puck and using his
smarts and savvy board play to win battles. While he illustrated good hand-skills, great vision
and passing skill, and a hard, accurate wrist-shot, his decision-making and effectiveness isn’t
always great when he has the puck due to his size and inability to work through that deficit. If he
can add more strength and play smarter, understanding his limitations, we like his upside. Just
a really useful player who we hope will put up solid numbers wherever he plays moving forward.  (May 2015)
