|Undrafted - Under 20|
|Written by Brendan Ross|
February 2013 – Nurse entered his draft season as a player with immense pro potential and scouts were eager to see him tap some of that underlying talent. Fortunately, Nurse has done exactly that. The large smooth skating mobile defenseman has progressed with every shift this season. The biggest question mark in Nurse’s game was always his offensive potential and he displayed quickly that he does indeed have the offensive skills to become a threat in all 60-feet of the rink. His ability to play the game calmly under pressure makes him easy to project as a reliable responsible two-way defender. Large, mobile, physical defensemen with the ability to provide offense are highly coveted and, as a result, Nurse will be the target of many NHL teams. Brendan Ross
Fantasy Outlook: B+
Big mobile smooth skating defenseme that play on the edge are fantasy gold. Nurse has the ability to develop into a puck moving defenseman who can rack up the penalty minutes as well.
