Klas Dahlbeck

Aaron Vickers

A smart defensively responsible defender. Has a decent skating stride that gets him to where he needs to be with an above average top speed. Has quick feet, excellent agility and the jump to cover and close off lanes. Makes a strong accurate outlet pass and can skate well with the puck although he tends to let the more skilled players do so. Has a decent shot but does not use it often. Does not try to do too much or play above his own potential, but instead brings a consistent level of play each and every shift. His performance at the World Juniors in Buffalo was where he really impressed scouts. Not the highest upside but would be a nice bottom pairing ‘Mr. Dependable’ at the next level. (May 2011)
