Riley Nash had another nice night for Cornell, popping two goals (the first an unassisted effort which was a game winner, the second a PP marker) and now stands at 16gp, 7-7-14 which leads the Cornell club in points.
Tonight’s unassisted goal was his third of the season, which is at the very least curious. My mind allows me to imagine end to end dashes ala Gilbert Perreault although there were probably turnovers in there too. I like what’s doing to that defenseman too. It’s nice to see a defenseman not wearing Oiler colors badly beaten and waiting for his skull to hit iron.
With all of Gagner, Cogliano, Gilbert and Brodziak (plus another one or two maybe) graduating as prospects this winter, Riley Nash is looking like one of the very best prospects on the Oilers list at this time.
