Observations

July 2019 – The young American played high school hockey in his draft-eligible season which diminished his stock. Playing primarily in the New Jersey area, Nesterenko dominated his competition whether it was during USHS-PREP play or travel team games with New Jersey Jr. Titans U18 team. At almost two points-per-game, 59 points in 31 games, his speed and skill dominated the high school level. Next year he will get the chance to play in a slightly more competitive league in the BCHL with the Chilliwack Chiefs before a year at Brown University. Nesterenko was a long-term plan when he was drafted and may prove to be a valuable asset if his development at the next few levels of hockey over the next couple of seasons. Tony Ferrari
