Ice Pilots’ Neilson Tallies ECHL-High Five Assists

Pensacola defenseman Corey Neilson assisted on five of the six goals in the Ice Pilots 6-2 win over Mississippi on Saturday. The five assists are the most in an ECHL game this season while Neilson’s five points ties the season high set by Texas’ Cory Morgan, who had a goal and four assists in a 6-5 overtime loss at Greensboro on October 23. Neilson, who had scored six points (2g-4a) in his first five games, is tied for the ECHL lead among defensemen with nine assists and 11 points.
