The 6-foot, 180-pound Nixon was initially added to the Eagles roster as an amateur prior to the playoffs in 2013. The Russell, Manitoba native began the 2013-14 season in the first division in Sweden with Kallinge Ronneby. After suffering an arm injury, he would return to North America to start his rehabilitation, before eventually returning to the Eagles last December. In 23 games, Nixon posted nine points (4g-5a), before seeing his season shortened after suffering a second arm injury in February.

During the 2012-13 campaign, Nixon was named a CIS West 2nd Team All-Star. Nixon recorded 111 points in 141 games with the Dinos, including 51 goals.
