How did you spend YOUR All-Star break?
During the NHL All Star break, Edmonton Oilers coach Todd Nelson joined a new coaching staff – at least for the weekend. Todd’s son, Colton Nelson, is currently playing for the Junior “A” Oklahoma City Blazers of the Western States Hockey League where he has notched six goals and thirteen assists in twenty-four games. On a recent trip to play the Dallas Snipers (they would sweep the weekend), Todd Nelson took over as “bench boss” for a tender father / son moment.
Below is a lovely set of photos by Candace Riley, who has been doing remarkable work photographing the team this season. The moment was too precious and too unique not to share with you, and we are grateful that she gave us a glimpse in to one of my favorite moments of early 2015.
