The gritty forward possesses a pretty good two-way game and some offensive skills. His work ethic and character are his bread and butter which could get him to the NHL. The tough guy will drop the gloves with anyone in order to stand up for his teammates. He will need to improve his overall game and skating speed to get to the NHL level. His potential upside is a bottom six forward that can contribute offensively and make life difficult for the opposing defensemen.
Nevins should start his pro career at the AHL level in Hamilton this coming season but could spend time in the ECHL if he struggles to adjust to the speed of the pro game. The physical winger will likely play on the bottom six-forward group for the Bulldogs but he could find himself running shotgun alongside the more skilled forwards as protection.
