NILSSON NAMED AHL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
false

The American Hockey League announced today that center Robert Nilsson has been named the CCM Vector/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending November 19, 2006.

A 2003 first round pick of the Islanders, Nilsson scored four goals and totaled seven points in three games, helping the Bridgeport Sound Tigers go 2-0-0-1 on the week.

The 21-year-old Nilsson kicked off the week by recording an assist in Bridgeport's 3-2 shootout loss to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday. He then collected a pair of goals and an assist in a 5-1 win at Worcester on Friday night before scoring two more goals and assisting on the overtime game-winner in Saturday's 4-3 road defeat of division rival Hershey.

In recognition of his achievement, Nilsson will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Sound Tigers home game.

Born in Calgary where his dad, Kent, played for the NHL's Flames, the Swedish pivot was the 15th overall pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. Nilsson leads Bridgeport with 17 points (7g, 10a) in 16 games this season. As a rookie in 2005-06, Nilsson split time between the Sound Tigers and the Islanders, appearing in 53 NHL games and recording six goals and 14 assists for 20 points. He added 28 points (8g, 20a) in 29 regular-season games and five points in seven Calder Cup Playoff games for Bridgeport.
