Aaron Vickers

A big and raw defenseman who plays with a real natural aggression to his game. Physical, willing to throw his weight around and able when asked to drop the mitts. Good hockey sense and moves real well for as guy his size. A long powerful balanced stride coupled with solid lateral agility makes it hard to get by him. Has the ability to eliminate his man along the wall with his strength or simply use his long reach to disrupt an opponents attack. Sees the ice well and gets the puck up ice quickly. Makes solid tape-to-tape passes and can rush it himself. Has a big time point shot and some nice untapped offensive upside. The future University of Denver blueliner needs to polish up on some part of his game but has huge potential if given the proper direction. Some boom or bust with this prospect. (May 2011)
