Nieves' Blue Boys had a rough weekend -- swept in the GLI.
Still, Nieves is a stud. The kid can do everything but score goals. He played wing most of last season on a veteran team who stunk. This year, Berenson moved him to center ice with a whole bunch of freshman on the flanks and it's been a slow transition, but the Wolverines are a top team in the nation.
Nieves has all the tools. Big, strong, ice vision and slick playmaking abilities with blazing speed off the rush. I dont think his numbers are an accurate picture. His game translates to the NHL.
Kreider didnt have a great sophomore year at BC. It started slow and then he picked it up after the WJC.
Nieves is certainly good enough to be in Malmo. With that sheet of ice, he would have been very hard to contain.
Get him to Hartford soon.
