Johan Larsson

Aaron Vickers

A strong two-way player who can add an element of offense to the squad. Had an amazing U18 tournament in Belarus this past April. Shows strong attention to detail and on-ice smarts. Balanced and hard to knock off the puck and uses his size to protect the puck and win puck battles along the boards. Skating is getting better but is still in need of improvement. Has a good compete level and leads by example. Has a very good accurate shot that he gets off quickly. Sees the ice well and makes strong passes. Hockey sense that is off the charts. Has a bit of clutch in him as he is the guy who seems to come up with the big play when needed. Plays a strong three-zone game and reads the defensive aspect better than most. Has a limited offensive upside at the next level. (May 2010)
