Duncan Siemens

Aaron Vickers

Has a smooth fluid skating stride that allows him to constantly be involved and not get beat because of a lack of mobility. Aggressive and intense on the ice, always look- ing to make an impactful play. Delivers the occasional devastating open ice hit and loves to plaster guys along the wall. Pins his check down and clears the greasy areas of his zone with authority. Has good defensive awareness, strong positional play and likes the hard nosed style of game. Willing and more than able to drop the gloves with anyone who will take him on. Has great size for his style of game and uses it to get into lanes and block shots. Shows good poise when pressured and doesn’t get rattled by a hard forecheck. Incorporates his long reach and an active stick to control his side of the ice. Has some offensive upside as well with a strong outlet pass, nice vision and a willingness to join the rush when it is safe to do so. Skinny frame needs to add another 25-pounds of muscle to reach his ideal playing weight. (May 2011)
