Isles prospect Brock Nelson taken off ice on stretcher
Islanders prospect Brock Nelson, selected in the first round (30th overall) this past June, was taken off the ice on a stretcher during tonight's Frozen Four Semifinal.
A UND spokesperson confirmed via text to Newsday that Nelson suffered a lower-body injury and was taken to a local hospital as a precaution.
UND's Nelson took a hard spill into the boards at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul in the first period of the Fighting Sioux's match against the University of Michigan Wolverines.
The 19-year-old Warroad, MN native has eight goals and 13 assists in 41 games for UND this season.
