Carter Ashton

Aaron Vickers

Size and strength are his biggest assets…plays a power game blended with some decent scoring ability…has a very nice shot and can handle the puck in tight…solid play along the wall and uses his size both there as well as in bulling his way to the net…uses his reach well to protect the puck…throws his body around and has some shifts were he is a wreaking ball on the ice. A lumbering skater who has had a hard time keeping up to the speed in the WHL…offensive creativity is lacking as he is not naturally gifted in that area…game is full of inconsistent effort level and you don’t know what product you are going to get…defensive play is non-existent…vision on the ice is questionable…does not handle the puck well on the rush and is more of a north/south complementary winger even at this level.
