Central Division Star of the Week: Tim Nicksic, forward, Minnesota Wilderness
Minnesota Wilderness captain and forward Tim Nicksic, 20, had his best weekend of the year as the 5’10/188 lbs. native of Tomah, Wisconsin, recorded five points in two home games this past weekend against the Aberdeen Wings. He had two goals and an assist in an 8-1 win on Friday and had a goal and an assist in a 5-4 loss on Saturday. He also was a +4 on the weekend. In 11 games this season, Nicksic has 8 points. “Timmy had a great weekend. He proved why he is our captain with his tremendous leadership on and off the ice. With this past weekend being his ‘breakout’ weekend, we fully expect the same production and leadership moving forward,” said Wilderness head coach Tim Madsen.
