Aaron Nelson, rising-star goaltender for the Bismarck Bobcats, is taking his skills to college.

The Bobcats announced this week that Nelson has enrolled at Minnesota State University-Mankato starting in the fall.

In an interview with Ryan Cunningham on "The Coaches' Show" (heard on SuperTalk 1270), Nelson said he felt it was "the right time and right place" for the move.

Cunningham says he made the decision after a visit to the M.S.U. Mankato campus this past weekend.
