Observations:

March 2018 - Nolan Stevens has had himself a pretty great senior year for Northeastern University. Having put up 41 points in 37 games he was named to the Hockey East Second Team All Star squad. As the current captain of the team playing in a bigger spotlight didn't seem to slow him down one bit playing a crucial role in Northeastern incredibly strong overall season. Currently tied for fifth overall in division one hockey with 24 goals the 21 year old looks to be more then ready for the AHL. Josh Epstein

 

September 2017 - Stevens remained at Northeastern for 2016-2017 and is heading back for his senior year. He had a credible, but shortened, season.  In 17 games he scored 10 goals and had 12 assists.  Stevens is a work in progress, and there are better fantasy choices available. Doug Abrams

 

December 2016 – Dipping their toes into the college pool for the second time in the 2016 draft, St. Louis selected Northeastern Huskies centre Nolan Stevens, son of L.A. Kings associate coach John Stevens. In his third year of draft eligibility Stevens broke out big time by posting 20 goals and 22 assists in 41 games playing on a line with his older brother John. His 20 goals paced the Huskies and was second on the team in points. An injury that will keep him out until the new year has limited Stevens to just six games this year where he’s tallied five points. Up until his draft year, Stevens has never a big point producer at any level so it’s hard to know if his 2015-16 was a one off or simply a case of someone putting it all together later in their hockey life. The Blues figured it was worth on fifth rounder to bet on the latter. Stevens has ideal size you want from a centre, especially to compete in the Western Conference. He’s a good puck protector and battler in front of the net, Stevens comes by his goals honestly through his compete level and strong work ethic. Given that he’s a coach’s son you’d expect his to be solid on the defensive side and he is, playing sound 200 foot game. Brad Phillips
