Logan McVeigh

Aaron Vickers

A big strong winger with tons of potential. Definitely isn’t the prettiest skater, but he does have solid speed and the ability to move well against traffic and in tight spots. He needs to work on his acceleration as he lumbers out of the gate. Displayed strength and solid positioning along the boards. Protects the puck well and clearly has an understanding of how to use his size to his advantage. Takes the opportunity to hit almost everybody he can on the forecheck or along the boards. Is committed defensively and makes smart decisions with the puck when in his own zone. Will get dirty and go to the net where he can both set-up for deflections or pound home a garbage goal. Handles the puck well and is a strong passer but his best asset is his quick shot release off the rush. It is on his stick and jumps off it in mere seconds; shows he knows where to be positioning wise to receive the pass in the offensive zone. Overall he’s just a simple and effective player with great hockey sense and he doesn’t over think things. Improvements to overall consistency in effort and physical play would go a long way to getting him to the next level. (May 2012)
