Martin Marincin

Aaron Vickers

A very tall but reed thin blueliner that has some nice offensive skills. Skates well but lacks foot speed which likely will develop better as he adds strength to his skinny legs. Moves the puck well and shows some impressive passing ability and vision, but does not do so consistently. Defensive zone positioning is either on or not depending on the game. Likes to carry the puck up ice and make plays. Mobility is an area that needs some attention as he can get caught on the turn by some quicker forwards who then blow right by him en route to the net. Has a great reach and uses it well to disrupt plays and protect the puck. Very slight and needs to add considerable mass to be effective at the next level. (May 2010)
