Kevin Hayes

Aaron Vickers

A big body who skates well, with good speed and has decent offensive skills. Protects the puck well and drives it through traffic to the net. Has a very good accurate wrister that he gets off quickly and hard slap shot. Willing to play physical and actually relishes it. Can handle the puck and can make defenders miss one-on-one. Higher skill level than brother Jimmy drafted by Toronto in 2008. Plays in both offensive and defensive zones. Hockey sense and smarts have been questioned and some wonder about his offensive upside at the NHL level. (May 2010)
