Shawn Lalonde

Aaron Vickers

Mobility, speed and acceleration are his best assets. He is a slick puck rushing defender who can handle the puck. Lalonde has good vision and playmaking skills that complement his tough physical side. He is a fiery competitor who battles hard in the corner and will stand up for himself although he never instigates. Consistency in effort level shift-in and shift-out. He cheats too often defensively and is a liability in his own zone at times. Also, Lalonde has displayed questionable decision making in his zone that has you wondering if the mental aspect will catch up to the physical skills. He is awful skinny and desperately needs to add strength. (May 2008)
