He plays so much like Jordan Staal. And not a poor man's version of him either, I mean he's
like Jordan Staal. When he gets to the NHL, don't be surprised if you think Nelson is his brother, not Eric.
EDIT: Sorry if I sound overly excited about him, but I didn't expect Nelson to be this kind of player.
