New York Islanders‘ 1st round pick in the 2010 draft (#30 overall), center Brock Nelson(29) is lighting the lamp with frequency with their AHL affiliate Bridgeport Sound Tigers. In 11 games, he’s already tallied 7 goals and 6 assists with a +4 plus/minus.
The sizable 6’3″ 205 lbs. forward knows how to get into position and execute scoring chances.
He left college after only a couple of years (and his last one as a point per game player), signing a 3-years entry level deal with the Isles.
If the NHL was in session, the 21-year old would definitely be competing for a roster spot in the show; but for now he’s doing just fine proving what he’s worth with the farm team in his rookie season.
