Aaron Vickers

Big and athletically talented butter y (which is what his last name translates to) style goaltender. Has the prototypical size NHL teams look for. Plays a technically sound game where he keeps his angles tight and takes away a good portion of low net with his leg air. Keeps his chest out stays upright when in his butter y. Has a good side-to-side push but could use some work on his glove. At one point this season he was challenging John Gibson as the draft’s top goaltender but saw his stock fall over the last month with inconsistent international play. He seemed to lose his confidence and focus allowing multiple juicy rebounds and overplaying angles when his game fell apart. He has some real nice potential for the next level. Helped lead his JYP U20 squad to the league Championship. (May 2011)
