One of the rising stars in the OHL, Nathan Allensen played his first full season with the Barrie Colts and even managed to gain some great playoff experience, unfortunately cut a bit short by the Kingston Frontenacs. Drafted by the Barrie Colts in the 2nd round, Nathan did well considering it was his rookie season. He was Top 5 in defensive, rookie scoring this season with a fairly strong +/- rating of 10.
In his first game playing with the team, he had a career high of 3 points, 1 goal and 2 assists. It’s good that he wasn’t playing in the NHL as I’m sure fans would have pegged him as a savior and bringing significant hype. We’ll see how he fares next season as I’m sure the coaching staff will give him more minutes and more defensive responsibilities.
Gettin’ the auto
I actually sent this card to Nathan through the Barrie Colts in which he signed this CHL Upper Deck Rookies card for me in less than a month!
Thanks for the autograph Nathan!
