Mallards Deal for Nelson

October 27, 2014 - ECHL (ECHL) - Quad City Mallards News Release

MOLINE, Ill. (October 27, 2014) - The Quad City Mallards have acquired rookie forward Logan Nelson from the Rapid City Rush in exchange for future considerations, the Mallards announced today.

Nelson, a 21-year old rookie, had not yet played for the Rush this season. Last year the Rogers, Minnesota, native scored 23 goals and totaled 31 points in 59 games with the Western Hockey League's Victoria Royals.

"Looking at our roster and at how we played over the weekend, we have a lot of pretty good young players up front but we also have room to improve," said Mallards coach and general manager Terry Ruskowski. "Logan has good size and skates well. He put up good numbers in major junior and that's impressive in a league that sends a lot of players straight to the AHL and the NHL, so he's a good candidate to be a strong player for us."

The 6' 1", 186-pound Nelson produced a 60 goals and 68 assists for 128 points in 179 games over his three seasons with Victoria. He spent the 2010-11 season with the United States Hockey League's Des Moines Buccaneers before heading north of the border.
