The Eels are excited to announce that Aaron Davidson will be joining our junior program for the 2021-22 season. Davidson at 6’8” 207lbs brings enormous size to the program. He is an extremely physical player and uses his body and size to wear down his opponents. No doubt his presence is felt all over the ice. But he also brings a high level of skill. He is a strong skater who leads the charge on the attack. Good puck movement. And is aggressive on the forecheck. He is relentless along the boards and wins loose puck battles and first on puck retrieval. His drive to the net is intimidating. He has that unusual appetite to score. A perineal power forward in all sense of the game. He covers the front of the net so well and makes it nearly impossible for opposing goalies to gather their vision. This kid lays everything out when he plays. We can see he has the work ethic typical amongst our Eels players!!!
In the D Zone he is equally effective. With his size and attitude you won’t beat him. He knows his responsibility is Defense first, and he is very effective in carrying out this philosophy. There is no question Davidson comes with a high compete level. He is a very dedicated young man who puts in quite a bit of extra time to improve his game. He is very determined to get to the Next Level as a player and help his team win a National Championship. We know when he adapts to the Eels training his upside is limitless.
Aaron has played for some solid programs that have helped develop him as a mainline impactful player. He played for the Kitchener Jr. Rangers U18 AAA, the Kitchener Dutchmen GOJHL and the Stratford Warriors of the GOJHL. He comes in as a seasoned player. Experience is very important here. He echoes his unwavering commitment to do whatever it takes to bring his team to the Next Level and he will be an effective leader on and off the ice.
Aaron will be joining us in Foxboro Mass at the New England Pro Am Pre-Draft Showcase in July. It will be his first exposure of its kind to him. There will be in excess of 125 teams competing with scouts form virtually every NCAA program. It will be a phenomenal opportunity for him to see the visibility the Eels players typically garner. We are excited that Aaron will be a part of the Eels family. We welcome him.
