Ivan Telegin

Aaron Vickers

Has great size and strength which he uses especially when he gets going towards the net. Is hard to control for defenders and even if they think he is wrapped up he gets his stick open because of his long reach and wiry strength. Has good hand-eye coordination and uses that skill to deflect point shots effectively. Displays a solid two-way game as he often came back deep in his own zone to disrupt the offensive ow. Seems to see the ice well and can make some pretty impressive passes through traffic. Uses size well and skates well with a long fluid stride which generates a good amount of speed. Has a nice shot that is accurate and has good velocity. Shows leadership qualities and is a positive influence on teammates with the Spirit. Struggles with consistency. Questions of conditioning arose after struggling in second half of the season. Can look lost at times in his own end. (May 2010)
