Brock Nelson Makes NHL Debut

Brock Nelson made his NHL debut on Saturday night — in Game 6 of an Stanley Cup Playoff series between the New York Islanders and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Nelson wore the same number he did at UND, No. 29.

The former first-round pick had a great season in the AHL, setting the Bridgeport rookie scoring record with 52 points. He also was the second-leading rookie scorer in the AHL this season.

The Islanders entered Game 6 trailing 3-2 in the series against the Penguins.

Nelson, who starred at UND for two seasons, turned pro last summer.
