2010 NHL Entry Draft, Round 1: Brock Nelson goes to the Islanders as the last pick
Round 1 - 30th overallNew York Islanders - Brock Nelson
6'3", 203 lbs. center, Warroad (HS)
It’s always nice to see a player come through with hockey history in his blood. That’s the case with the awesomely named Brock Nelson*, who is the nephew of “Miracle on Ice” U.S. Olympian Dave Christian. Nelson is a big, skilled forward who could end up being a very interesting prospect for the New York Islanders.
* - Seriously, that’s a name fit for the role of a villain in an 80s high school comedy. I’m a fan of his by default.
