Stuart Percy

Aaron Vickers

Percy plays a safe, take care of your own zone first game. Moves well enough on the ice with a smooth stride to get the job done although he lacks explosive jump in his step. Not a ashy offensive contributor in any way but he does make solid and accurate passes. Can transition the play from defense to offense with a quick breakout pass to his forwards. Uses strong positioning, a quick stick and a willingness to physically engage the opposition to defend effectively. Makes smart decisions consistently and calmly in his own zone and does not try to force what is not there. Shows good smarts and reads the play well. Has very limited offensive upside but should play in the NHL as a solid bottom paring defensive defenseman. (May 2011)
