The UND hockey team relied heavily on Brock Nelson to carry them to another Broadmoor trophy and a top seed in the NCAA tournament. Nelson's terrific play caught the eye of the team that drafted him, the New York Islanders.

Today Nelson gave up his last two years of eligibility and signed a three year contract with the Isles. Nelson had a monster year, racking up 28 goals, leading the WCHA in that stat. The Warroad native will join Roseau product Aaron Ness on the Island.
