Chris Kreider

Aaron Vickers

Imposing size, speed and a hard working attitude are some of his best assets…he has a long smooth stride that is powerful…he can get to top gear in just a few strides…he controls the puck with his long reach and protects it with his strong frame…his shot is pro caliber and has the release needed to keep goalies off balance…he has soft hands and can carry the puck into the offensive zone effectively…can be an imposing force coming down the wing…has shown a good willingness to play in dirty areas all over the ice…drives into traffic and takes the puck to the net…defensively he has a good work rate and is aggressive on the puck carrier. The level of his competition is relatively low at the high school level…his game is also underdeveloped when it comes to defensive play. (May 2009)
