Matt McNeely

Aaron Vickers

A big athletic butter y goaltender. Has very quick feet and side-to-side movements. Shoots out his pads with lightning quick re exes and steers the puck to the corners well. Not as technically strong as some of the other more highly rated goalies but has just as much pro upside. Utilizes his re exes more than just playing his angles. Has games where his focus is strong and confidence is high, can look all-world and then the next game lets in a few softies. Will draw a lot of interest from NHL squads looking to draft a goalie and let him develop for three or four years. Should have plenty of time to iron out wrinkles in his game at Minnesota-Duluth.
