Matt Hackett

Aaron Vickers

Has impressive size and knows how to use it with solid positioning and impressive angles play…he has improved his lateral mobility and tightened up his stance limiting the daylight a shooter sees this past year…plays aggressively and will come way out to challenge one-on one which is also a change from last season…does not flop around but instead stays in position…stays poised and calm in the net…tracks the puck well and makes saves through traffic…has the ability to make the clutch save. Lack of technique as he can’t decide if he is a butterfly or stand-up style keeper…a weak glove and blocker as he holds them too low and lacks quickness…what has scouts excited about with Hackett is his quick ability to make the second and third save consistently…needs to add more leg strength.
