The Saskatoon Blades are pleased to announce that they have signed defenceman Nelson Nogier to a Western Hockey League education contract.
The 6'1, 168 pound native of Saskatoon was the Blades 4th round selection, 71st overall, in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.
"The Saskatoon Blades organization are excited to get a player like Nelson under contract," said Blades assistant General Manager Jarrod Brodsky.
"He's shown the qualities that we like in a player and we are very happy with his development since we drafted him this past spring. We look forward to seeing him develop even further in the coming months."
Nogier has spent the 2011-2012 season with the Saskatoon Contacts, where he has posted 3 goals and 11 points in 35 games up to this point of the year.
