Aaron Vickers

A skilled playmaker who is also a strong two-way competitor…agile and explosive skater able to cut and carve his way in tight areas generating space to make a play…relies on slick stick handling ability along with his ability to move in tight spaces to get himself where he needs to be…can really rifle the puck on target keeping goalies honest…finishes his checks hard and is not afraid to get his nose dirty…excels battling along the wall and in traffic…zips passes right onto the tape of his target…strong net area presence…takes direct lanes to the net and has the hands to finish off plays as well as a devastating release on his howitzer…can be inconsistent from one shift to the next…a no messing around opportunist offensive contributor although there is some skill and creativity to his game…projects as a middle six two-way competitor at the next level.
