Well I grew up about .5 miles from him. Albeit hes 8 years my junior, but my uncle coached the local HS team for around 8 years, winning 4 state championships. Nick was on the team as a freshman, and my uncle basically said as much as Id love to have you here you need to move on, you're too good to stay. My uncle having played semi pro for years, has a lot of NE hockey connections and sent him off to Cathedral Prep in Erie. My mom and dad had know his parents as its a very small town (Clinton, NY). I have brothers around his age etc. Just a small town where everyone knows everyone kind of thing. But being my family is such a big hockey family in the area made the connections inevitable.
