All in the family: Nelson's brother commits

Minnesota State recently received a verbal commitment from defenseman Casey Nelson, the brother of current MSU defenseman Josh Nelson, for next season, according to sources.

Casey plays for the North American Hockey League's Johnstown Tomahawks where he has 30 points (10 goals, 20 assists) in 50 games. The Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., native is 6-foot-2, 180 pounds and will give the Mavericks some significant depth on the blue line next season.

Josh will be a senior for the Mavericks. There will also be a third Nelson on the team (no relation), Jordan Nelson, currently of the USHL's Fargo Force.

It seems like the Mavs have a ton of Defensemen for next year. Flanagan, Fogouth, and Nelson committed. Knoll coming off a redshirt year. Thompson coming off a transfer. That gives us 9 people at that position for next. Looks like there will be a lot of competition for playing time.
