Aubin has the hands of a natural goal scorer. Unfortunately, he doesn't yet have the wheels to match. A late birthday, the club would like to see him work on his foot speed and overall strength - two aspects which could have been well served playing frequently as a junior overager, but he did make the jump to the pro ranks.
A player with a good frame, Aubin is isn’t nearly physical enough.
