Louis Leblanc

Aaron Vickers

A two-way threat every time on the ice…he has decent speed and good overall mobility…plays with a hard edge… will take the puck to the net and battle for any rebounds once there…has good vision and nice hockey sense… makes plays with the puck and can place the puck on his linemates stick with a pin point pass…has a good shot and mixes it up well…is aggressive on the forecheck and pressures the puck carrier effectively disrupting offensive flow…finishes his checks and plays a strong defensive game…will pay the price by blocking shots or taking a hit …is solid in the faceoff circle and makes himself an outlet for his defense…he plays with a high level of intensity… has a good quick stick in both zones…plays with a mean edge and loves to play the body. His size is not as big as you would want from a player playing his type of game…he also has a bit of a limited offensive upside at the next level…not a lot of glaring weaknesses.
