Mike Reilly

Aaron Vickers

A smooth two-way defender who can put up some points. Skates well, nothing to get overly excited about but has good overall mobility and speed. Has great offensive instincts and quick decision making ability. Remains calm and poised under pressure, rarely turning over the puck. Can carry the puck and likes it on his stick, solid puck distribution skills and high end vision. Transitions the puck very quickly from defense to offense. Defensively he gets overpowered and at his best in his zone when he keeps it simple. Father was a draft pick of Montreal in the late ’70’s. NHL teams looking at Reilly know they will need to be patient and let him add some bulk over the next three or four years before they can even think of bringing him to the pro game. Very weak physically and needs to add strength over the summer. (May 2011)
