Paging Dr. Nielsen

Goodlands product and former NHLer Chris Nielsen is about to enter his second year of medical school at University of Calgary this fall.

Nielsen, the first overall pick in the 1995 WHL Bantam Draft, was a two-time winner of the WHL's Scholastic Player of the Year award and is putting those skills to work now after his professional hockey career ended.

His last real action came with the Steinbach North Stars at the 2009 Allan Cup while he also provided colour commentary on CJOB's Manitoba Moose broadcasts during the 2008-2009 season.
