Nelson Named UND Team MVP
Brock Nelson, who led the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) in goals, was named the recipient of the Jeff Anderson Hockey Scholarship today as North Dakota\'s Most Valuable Player.

Sophomore forward Brock Nelson, who led the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) in goals, was named the recipient of the Jeff Anderson Hockey Scholarship today as North Dakota's Most Valuable Player.

Nelson led the league and ranked third nationally with 28 goals, while also leading the team in points (47), power-play goals (10) and game-winning goals (6). The Warroad, Minn., native was the only WCHA player to score 20 goals during league play, registering 20 in 28 games, and earned All-WCHA Third Team and Inside College Hockey All-America Third Team honors. Nelson signed with the National Hockey League’s New York Islanders following the season.

Nelson also received the team’s plus/minus award after recording a team-leading and career-high +17.

The Fighting Sioux (26-13-3, 16-11-1 WCHA) won their league-record third straight Broadmoor Trophy as WCHA Final Five champions and earned the No. 1 seed for the NCAA West Region Tournament, where UND advanced to its sixth regional championship game in eight years under head coach Dave Hakstol.

Nelson finished the 2011-12 season on an amateur tryout with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League, appearing in two Calder Cup Playoff games.
