Aaron Vickers

Size and a modest skill set make him an attractive future power forward prospect…plays with good energy and drives to the net with or without the puck…has good speed and uses it to create opportunities in the offensive zone…has impressive acceleration for such a big guy and hits full speed in only a few short strides…is aggressive on the wall and plays a physical brand against defenders…uses his size and balance to win most puck battles…has a very good shot and can finish from in close…decent passing ability but primarily a natural scorer…does not over handle the puck…has a good work ethic and plays hard in all three zones. Offensive game is underdeveloped and he sometimes seems to lack confidence in his abilities… defensively he needs to mark his man and read the play better…has to add strength to fully reach his PF potential… needs to be better at protecting the puck when he has possession…offensive game is still a question.
