Cody Glass

Aaron Vickers

A strong positional player who plays well on both sides of the puck…although his foot speed is pretty good for a guy his size, first step accelerate could improve…not overly flashy offensively but effective due to smarts and excellent senses…an excellent puck mover, he finds teammates with ease and is a huge possession asset…has the confidence and protection skills to rag the puck until he finds an open teammate…execution of passes is excellent and he is especially skilled at changing angles with his hands to create passing lanes…has a knack for dictating the pace and slowing the game down when he’s on the ice…plays a gritty game and uses his body and quickness to create space…strength in a two way game and displays a big active disruptive stick in the defensive zone…supports his defensemen down low and ties up his check in front of the net…not a brute physically but uses his size effectively…shows great compete to get quick on pucks and make decisive plays…a projected top-six character center with offensive upside.
