Marcel Noebels

Aaron Vickers

A big body who shoots hard and drives to the net. Skates well with a wide stride, generating ample speed and agility. Protects the puck well with his large frame and long reach. Drives the net and works hard for loose pucks. Can handle the puck by carrying it up ice or dishing soft passes with a nice touch and solid vision. Has a real heavy shot that is his biggest weapon. Could add more leg strength which might help a slow first few steps. Defensively responsible and shows nice hockey sense. His role will not likely ever be an offensive generator, but rather, a good two-way winger. His coming over and showing his willingness to leave home should be enough for an NHL team to make Noebels their property this June. (May 2011)
