Nelson Nogier (born May 27, 1996) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenseman who currently plays for the Winnipeg Jets of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Nogier played junior hockey for the Western Hockey League's Saskatoon Blades from 2011 until December 14, 2014, when he was traded to the Red Deer Rebels.[1] In his final year of junior hockey, Nogier attained career highs in goals (4), assists (17), points (21), and plus-minus (+27).

The Winnipeg Jets selected Nogier in the fourth round (101st) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. After completing his junior career with the 2016 Memorial Cup host Red Deer Rebels, Nogier signed a three-year, two-way entry-level contract with the Jets.[2]

Nogier attended the Winnipeg Jets 2016 preseason training camp, his second with the team, but was subsequently demoted to the Jets farm team, the Manitoba Moose, with the first round of cuts.[3] Nogier spent most of his professional rookie season with the Moose in the American Hockey League. He was recalled by the Jets late in the season and made his NHL debut on March 21, 2017, playing a total of 10 games.[4]

Nogier was the recipient of the 2013–14 Daryl K. (Doc) Seaman Trophy for the WHL's Scholastic Player of The Year.[5]

Personal[edit | edit source]

Nogier grew up in Clavet, Saskatchewan. His father, Pat, is a police officer with the Saskatoon Police Service and a former junior hockey player, who survived the deadly Swift Current Broncos bus crash in 1986.[6]
