Ryan Strome

Aaron Vickers

A super-skilled offensive player who can create his own scoring chance each time he touches the puck. A very solid skating centre and has unbelievable acceleration and can change direction in a blink with nice edge work. Strong lateral agility and change of pace add to his effectiveness when attacking the offensive zone. Has good vision and is a strong passer who has good timing and accuracy. Has very quick hands and is a constant threat to take the puck to the net. Has strong finishing abilities although he is more of a playmaker, but he possesses an accurate shot with a very quick release. Smart at finding lulls in coverage and gets his shots off consistently. Consistency in his effort level is an area that many would like to see improve as shift to shift you did not know what effort will be delivered. (May 2011)
