Gabriel Lemieux

Aaron Vickers

A steady defender…he has some impressive offensive abilities but uses them as a complimentary part of his game…skates well with good overall mobility… sees the ice well and makes good passes…has a nice point shot…plays with solid defensive positioning and quickness…can carry the puck and distributes it well… has a quick stick and uses it well to strip attackers. Is weak and easily thrown off the puck when engaging in battles along the wall…has improved much this season in this regard as he struggled with when to pinch and when not to. (May 2009)
