Brock Nelson has scored 11 of his 18 goals with his wrist shot.

Nelson got off to a great start to his season last year before tailing off. He is seeing less power play time this season but has been scoring more because of his wrister.

Nelson has 28 points in 44 games thus far and should surpass his 20 goal campaign last season quite easily.
