Ty Nelson's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: "Nelson's skating is outstanding going forward or backward. He can carry pucks out of his zone and lead the rush, and his ability to track back and keep a tight gap allows him to break up plays before they become dangerous and trigger transition offense."

Sebastian High - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "Nelson keeps a very tight gap, matches the footwork of the forward, and extinguishes entries within ten feet of the puck crossing his blueline by forcing the attacker to the outside and pinning him against the boards. He is very skilled at steering play away from the middle lane, and he protects the slot quite well."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "He’s eager to activate up ice and join the rush or lead a transition sequence, he side-steps pressure with ease, and while I wouldn’t say he’s fast, his stride is compact and balanced through forward and backwards pushes and aggressive and almost choppy through his crossovers (in part because of how darn big and strong he is for his size)."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "He has good enough skill to carry and create offense, and displays good poise as a passer. Nelson’s biggest issue is his frame as he barely measures at 5-foot-10, but he’s a highly competitive player who can land surprising hits for his size."Peter Harling - Dobber Prospects - Mar. 20th: "Nelson controls the game when he is on the ice. Skates well, commands the puck plays physical, has a bomb of a shot. If he were 6-3, he would be a top five pick."Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: "Nelson's skating is outstanding going forward or backward.
