Samuel Bucek

Aaron Vickers

A naturally gifted two-way forward…impressive blend of size, strength and skills…quick footed for a kid his size, showing excellent acceleration and separation speed…is very deceptive with his quick decision making process…possesses an accurate and quick wrist shot and determination to create offence…has soft, skilled hands for a big kid…not consistently physical engaged along the wall or in puck battles but when he does he enjoys unlimited amounts of success…not a guy who looks for the big hit or to crush his opponent even though he has the size to do so…uses that size to drop his shoulder and force his way to the net…a really tough match up for whichever defenseman is in charge of containing him when he feels an offensive opportunity is there…has some lofty upside as a top six power winger who can score but could also bust depending on his determination…these kind of guys, prospects with size, skill and power, have NHL teams drooling.
