Aaron Shanks is a very committed player that puts in the time and effort that is needed. Shanks uses his aggression and forechecking effectively in the offensive zone, he also works hard and takes pride in the defensive zone, often blocking shots. Aaron spends a lot of time on the penalty kill, which is an effective skill to have as it would give him more opportunity for ice time. Aaron is a player that puts his team first and is willing to do anything to help. Over the lockdown, Aaron has been building his confidence and patience so that when he has the puck, he is able to make assertive plays and create his own lanes to generate more shot opportunities. Aaron is a player you have to have on your team, he is dependable and willing to grind, whichever OHL team picks him up will be more than lucky to have him.
