A big and lanky overager that can play at center as well as on the wing, which is desirable for any NHL team. Aman is a strong skater who possesses very powerful first strides and can hit decent top speed with just a few long strides. His skating helps his overall game, allowing him to make up for his lack of high-end puck skills. While he doesn’t have the most elite puck skills, he is very good at positioning himself in the offensive zone and using his hockey smarts to make plays happen. He wins a lot of faceoffs cleanly when playing center, which is beneficial to his team being able to create scoring chances. He is a very sneaky and smart hockey player who tends to play in all situations, often able to create plays out of nothing. He possesses a long reach that he uses effectively to dig pucks out of corners and puck battles. Not necessarily the first guy on the forecheck but he covers the neutral zone well to avoid long stretch passes from his opponents. He can anticipate passing lanes before they happen, which helps him steal pucks in the middle ice to bring back up for a scoring opportunity. Defensively, he uses an active stick to break up passes and his stickwork helps him in battles along the boards where he can win a lot of battles. He is not necessarily a guy that possesses the puck a lot but plays a very sound and effective game away from the puck.
