Brock Nelson

Aaron Vickers

A big power centre who can fill the net. Skates very well for such a big guy and has real good strength behind his stride. Has good balance and can carry defenders on his back to the net. Shot is very powerful and is one of his primary assets along with his vision and offensive creativity. Tries to play a good two-way game as he comes back deep into the defensive zone and is an ace in the faceoff circle. Primarily a finisher with the ability to make accurate passes but will look to score first and foremost. Also has the hands to carry the puck up ice and not only enter the zone and get a shot off but also take the puck right to the net and convert on in-close chances. Has come along way in a short period of time and because of that his skills are still very raw and underdeveloped. Will need time to round out his game, figure out the defensive side of the game against better competition and add strength. (May 2010)
