But I would say he was the best player on the ice. He plays like he was very well coached at North Dakota, and even better coached now with Pellerin.

He plays so much like Jordan Staal. And not a poor man's version of him either, I mean he's just 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.
