Team: Warroad (MN HS)
Brock Nelson's Player ProfileNelson could end up being the top prospect to come out of Minnesota this season. Has great acceleration for a player of his stature. Nelson does not have any glaring weaknesses as he plays well in all three zones. Has a cannon of a shot that he can release with ease, is a player that is shoot first and pass second. Has showed major improvement over the course of his high school career, so there is no telling where his progression will stop. Nelson is one of the best players in the state in the faceoff circle.
Hockey runs deep within his family as Brock’s Uncle is Dave Christian, a long time NHL player and a member of the 1980 Olympic Miracle team. Like his uncle, Nelson will play his college hockey at the University of North Dakota.
Projection: Nelson is charging up the draft rankings. Scouts love the speed/size/hands combination that he possesses. Brock should be a mid to late first round selection.
