Aaron Vickers

A promising high-energy offensive forward who plays a responsible two-way game…has decent feet and can change pace, slowing down or speeding up in a few short strides…good patience with the puck and selects his shots and passing lanes well…very accurate shot that he can get off in motion with solid velocity…aggressive on the forecheck, pressuring defensemen behind the net, giving them no time at all…does everything with speed and energy…a confident puck handler using his speed and solid frame to work past defensemen, both in dump-and-chase plays or carry-ins…displays good puck-protection skills in the offensive zone that allowed him to drive to the net with the puck and maintain offensive zone pressure…goes to the net without the puck looking for rebounds…not the highest skilled player, but he works hard every shift…projects as a strong skater with solid puck protection, who can create dangerous scoring chances and shut down his opponent with a high-energy style at the next level.
