Troy Bourke

Aaron Vickers

A smooth and skilled offensive forward. He is an excellent skater with a good first step and solid explosiveness. Good edgework makes him a dangerous forward in the offensive zone. Has a very good shot and isn’t afraid to let his wristers go from areas all over the ice. Creates scoring chances for his line and was able to get his shot through traffic. He does try to do a bit too much at times which can be detrimental. Also plays bigger than his size would indicate and with an edge. He can deliver a hit and then back himself up by dropping the gloves. He plays the game as a versatile forward that tries to make an impact in all situations. Moves the puck well and has good stick handling skills with a willingness to drive the net. Has good vision and makes solid passes. Bourke will need to add considerable size to become more than just a solid Major Junior forward. (May 2012)
