William Karlsson

Aaron Vickers

A good two-way forward. Skates well with impressive quickness and agility. Has good speed but instead uses anticipation and positional understanding to be in the right place at the right time. Is strong in the faceoff circle and does many of the little things that a player needs to do to be successful. Has nice hockey sense, smarts and an understanding of his role in all zones. Shows good quick hands that can beat defenders one-on-one or control the puck in traffic. Has a good amount of energy and compete in his game. Uses his vision to play the role of playmaker but also can put the puck in the net. Not overly physical but is not afraid to drive the net and pay a price for a scoring chance. Really showed well at the U18’s in Germany where he did all the little things for a skilled Swedish team. (May 2011)
