He's not a two-way forward at all but he's smart so he reads plays well.

All you need to know is that he started the year on the 3rd and 4th lines, and even though the Wolverines suck this year, it's still a veteran team and Nieves has centered both top two lines as of late. He's played both wing and center.

The kid is just a great passer, but he's always looking to pass. He's got an underrated accurate wrist shot but he doesnt use it.

He's tied for 2nd in Freshman scoring in the CCHA and leads the Wolverines in assists.

Kid's a stud. Pure offense. His passing abilities and ice vision remind me of Andrew Cassels...or a bigger, faster version of Craig Janney.

I wont compare him to Savard because I think Savard was a better goal scorer. But there are similarities.
