Matt Duchene

Aaron Vickers

Great skater with blazing speed…possesses nice two step acceleration…plays a positive two-way game and is solid on the forecheck…has a quick stick, nice hand/eye coordination and can really handle the puck even at top gear…has an underrated shot that is both quick and accurate…a natural playmaker who has good vision and sense of timing…can play with a physical edge when the game gets chippy… not afraid to go into the dirty areas…off the ice he is approachable and exudes natural leadership qualities…a complete package. Consistency is an area that will need to be improved as he looks brilliant one shift and somewhat lackadaisical the next…needs to work on defensive positioning without the puck.
