Logan Nelson Interview - (Pre-Draft)

I caught up with Royals Forward Logan Nelson and talked about his experience at the past NHL Combine, his off season activities, as well as excitement for the upcoming NHL Draft June 22-23 in Pittsburgh.
Logan Nelson, #19 F Victoria Royals
From Rogers, Minnesota, he's ranked 73rd among North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting’s final draft rankings, with teammate Steven Hodges at 85th.

He recently graduated, works at a local sporting goods store, and hits the gym with fellow teammate Ben Walker.

His favourite NHL team is the Flyers, and was excited to get interviewed at the Combine by them.  After the draft, Logan will prepare for his try-out for the World Junior Team, in Lake Placid in early August.  He could be back in Victoria by mid-August.

Logan won’t be attending the NHL Draft, instead he’ll be playing in a local charity tournament.
