Collin Olson

Aaron Vickers

A big-bodied butterfly stopper. Has some good mobility in the crease, can go post-to-post and up and down rather quickly although added core strength will further improve those movements. Has a good head on his shoulders as he anticipates the play well, makes the preemptive moves and gets himself set in position before hand to eliminate the need to scramble. Has a good blocker and a decent glove hand. His angles play and aggressive positioning are some of his best assets although his natural size for net coverage is tops. Does have the reflexes to make that split-second pad save. Not much of a puck handler as he just does not look comfortable roaming far from his crease. Has his moments where he loses focus and can struggle like pulling off his post early and leaving space for the shooters. He has the ability to be a strong NHL puck stopper with the right defense in front of him. (May 2012)
