The Bismarck Bobcats are 14 and 7.
Goalie Aaron Nelson has been in net for 13 of those wins.
Tia Streeter: Bismarck native Aaron Nelson, has been a quiet steady leader for the Bobcats in his 3 seasons.
Layne Sedevie: you see him go side to side the way he moves the way he can make the big save he's a 5'9 and half goaltender and there's something to be said for that and he's a captain on the ice off the ice he's the hardest working guy that's one of the reasons for his success.
Tia Streeter: The Cats have been leaning heavily on Nelson so far this season, he's started 21 of 23 games, the most of any tender in the NAHL.
Aaron Nelson: my first year I played 20 games, its a different role you gotta be prepared every night and you just gotta give your team a chance to win and I feel like I've been doing that every night
Layne Sedevie: when we looked at the off season you want to build from the goalie out, and I think Aaron is arguably the best goalie in the league and obviously we feel he's the best we knew he'd play a lot of games
Tia Streeter: Nelson's 5 foot 9 inch frame has him undersized among goalies, but that has just pushed him to work harder. Next year he wants to play Division I hockey, but he says there's a time for everything.
Layne Sedevie: someone to give him the opportunity, he's not 6-4, but he's a division I goaltender I feel he's a very successful division I goaltender the way he tracks the puck, the way he reads the puck I really fell like we've had some great goaltenders come through here, he and another kid are the great goal tenders to play for this program, I think when he gets there he'll prove people wrong
Aaron Nelson: you don't see goalies very often being smaller scouts and coaches look at goalies that are big, but you also need goalies that can stop the puck so in the end you need to stop the puck and I can do that, and hopefully I'll continue to improve and do that"
The Bobcats are back in action this weekend with a home and home series with Brooking's.
The Cats play at the VFW Friday night at 7:15.
