Aaron Vickers

An offensive catalyst from the backend…has displayed nice vision…makes a solid outlet pass although he prefers to rush the puck up ice himself…has good poise and patience with the puck allowing his teammates to find open ice for receiving passes…has shown a nice hand skills and a quick stick…he skates well and has good straight line speed…is an added offensive weapon as he regularly joins the rush…impressive power play quarterback with distribution of the puck and also has a good point shot that keeps defenders alert….has good size and strength. Often lackadaisical in his defensive assignments…tends to get caught watching the play and does not show enough constant aggressiveness in his end…loose gap control and a lack of lateral mobility are also considered needing work…often he tries to check an opponent with just his stick…overall consistency needs improvement…development somewhat stalled this year due to lack of ice time.
