Jeremiah Addison

Aaron Vickers

Addison is a hard-working character guy who creates pressure on the forecheck and finishes his checks. He possesses explosive speed, is balanced on his feet and plays the power game despite his modest size. Sees the ice well and distributes the puck to open teammates off the rush before going to the net. Possesses a one-timer that is so lethal it surprises goalies with how quickly it is on them every time he releases it. Has had some accuracy problems with his shooting this season. Makes good decisions with the puck at top speed and can be dangerous offensively. Addison has shown versatility this season in all three zones. The determination and work ethic in this kid is very noticeable and something that could really make him a strong prospect down the line. He is a good net front presence and uses his wiry frame to disrupt around the net. Plays his man hard as he lays the body and engages on the wall. Isn’t afraid of the gritty areas or to wreak havoc in front of the net by tipping pucks, banging at loose pucks, pushing and shoving with defenders and trying to bury some garbage goals. Has a bad tendency to look down at the puck when carrying it up ice and into the zone. He is a player who can provide depth at the next level and can develop into a strong power forward if he works hard towards that goal. (May 2015)
