Cody Eakin

Aaron Vickers

A very fast two-way threat on the ice…plays with high intensity and a never quit motor…skates exceptionally well with two extra gears and the drive to always keeping his feet moving…makes quick plays and has very fast hands…has a good shot with a quick release which surprises goalies…has some good offensive creativity and underrated vision allowing him to set-up linemates…willing and able to block shots, take a hit and battle in the corners…solid on the PK and is defensively responsible…plays a physical brand, not necessarily a drop the gloves guy but will push and shove for body positioning…is a hard worker…very coachable player. Somewhat on the small side and underdeveloped upper body and legs make him easy to beat in physical battles for larger opponents…injury history is likely due to his smaller stature and the in you face game he plays…has a tendency to develop tunnel vision when the game is on the line and tries to do things himself.
