Aaron Vickers

A smooth skating defensive minded defenseman. Not overly big but solidly built and able to play a physical defensive game where he boxes out opponents, pins checks to the boards and can clear the crease. Uses a pretty quick stick to knock down pass attempts and close off lanes. Has good defensive instincts and can get his body down to block shots and passes. Keeps good gaps as well as communicating with and supporting his partner. You wonder about his size and effectiveness at the next level. Not much in the way of pro offensive upside. Had a hard year that saw his draft stock fall from potential first round pick to a mid-round selection. His playoff performance did nothing but hinder his already wounded status as well. (May 2011)
