SCOUT COMMENTS
“We project him as a third-line center. He’s a good player, a good solid two-way player, good skater, very smart, smart on the puck, and he can dish the puck pretty well … He plays pretty aggressive … He’s a guy who competes really hard for loose pucks in front and plays in the hard areas.” — Red Wings scout Mark Leach (June 2010) … “He doesn’t have any glaring weaknesses. He just needs to get physically stronger and that comes with maturity.” — Leach (February 2011).

STRENGTHS
Has a very tall frame continues to get stronger … A smooth, fluid skater … Skates well with the puck and uses his great range to protect it … Good hockey sense at both ends of the rink … Soft hands … Defensively responsible and willing to do little things like block shots … Good bloodlines: His father, Pierre, was a former NHLer with the Red Wings.

WEAKNESSES
Although he has flashed soft hands and shows good smarts, he’s never produced much offensively, even dating back to his junior days … Limited offensive upside … At the same time, he hasn’t taken advantage of his size to establish himself as an every-day role player at the AHL level … Despite his impressive size, he doesn’t play with enough of a physical edge.

PROJECTION
After three pro seasons, Aubry is still struggling to establish himself as an AHL regular. That’s a bad sign for the big, raw project, but he has one more year left on his entry-level contract. He’ll return to Grand Rapids in 2014-15 in search of a regular spot in the lineup.
