Francis Beauvillier

Aaron Vickers

A good two-way forward with some speed and bite in his game. Skates well with a nice top gear and strong balance. Needs to improve on his edge- work and east/west movements. Does not possess great vision when he has the puck but is more of a drive the net and take a shot, meat and potatoes type. Has a deadly wrist shot and a booming slap shot. Hits hard and loves the physical game. Lines up defenders and runs them over on the forecheck. Can read the play and knows what to do in the defensive zone. A very versatile player who contributes on all-sides of the puck. Can play penalty kill or power play and does so with good instincts and high intensity levels. A hard worker who does his best work digging at pucks and winning board battles. A better winger than centre type of prospect as his straight line speed and quick shot would make him a solid complementary guy. (May 2012)
