Malcolm Subban

Aaron Vickers

He is a very unorthodox-style goaltender, but is extremely effective with the tools that he has. He has some of the quickest feet in the draft. His post-to-post movement and instincts are very strong and he moves laterally almost effortlessly. His reflexes are the best in the draft this season. He always seems to make ‘the big saves’ with a quick leg kick or a flashy glove. His play this year was a big reason for Belleville’s success. What has observers excited is his progression from where he was last year compared to where he is this year. He has the ability to see the puck well, even with some heavy traffic around him. When he is set, he shows good re- bound control and is able to direct where the puck goes, aiming it into the corner with his blocker or pads. He is ultra-competitive and never gives up on a shot, showing a strong glove and blocker. He is not the prototypical positional goaltender that teams love; rather, he relies on his reflexes and amazing athleticism. He always seems to elevate his game in big situations and has a huge compete level. (May 2012)
