Josh Birkholz

Aaron Vickers

Speed, speed and more speed is what is attractive about Josh…he is a hard forechecker and plays the body…his shot is above average and he fights like hell along the wall…good balance allow him to protect the puck well. Has the Body Devereaux syndrome as he is skilled with great wheels but slow to read the play…not very creative offensively and is more of a support player…he is just average size and will need to get stronger to continue contributing at the next level…has an element of panic around the puck.
