It's really not as crazy as you make it sound. Al three forwards (Spooner, Toffolli, Zucker) selected had higher points per game than Nelson.

Nelson was close, as was Sgarbossa. Statistically speaking, Those were the 5 best rookie eligible forwards in the AHL this year that played at least 50 games. Rajala, Granlund, and Killorn also had very impressive PPG numbers but didn't play enough games IMO.

Stinks that Nelson didn't get the honor, but it's not like he was robbed, the others were deserving.
