Nick Lardis is a phenomenal skater. Lardis is your typical high-end player that can play both sides of the ice. As one of AAA’s most elite skaters, he brings speed and agility to his game. He may not be the fastest on the team due to Misa being a part of the same club, but on a technical level, Lardis’ edge work is superior. His dynamic edges and agile strides allow him to lose little speed on turns and swiftly stop and go as he pleases. Along with natural instinct, Nick brings extraordinary puck skills that allow him to regularly beat other players 1 on 1 through his puck handling alone. On top of that, he combines his tight skating ability to win these battles with ease. To have a player with such a skating ability accompanied by elite puck skills is a rare combination, as the majority of the time, especially at Lardis’ age, players will have feet that can’t keep up with their hands or vice versa. As he continues to grow and catch up in size, Lardis will become a dangerous player on the ice when he plays at the next level.
