From a young age, Nolan has always had aspirations to play Ice Hockey for the rest of his life. Throughout his youth hockey career so far, he has learned what it's like to be a leader and a team player. He is currently Assistant Captain for both his travel team (Tomorrows Ice Selects) and his High School Hockey team (Avon Grove Red Devils) where he has played on the varsity team since his freshmen year. Nolan has played on two different Tier 1 hockey teams throughout his Squirt and Pewee years. He played for the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers and the Philadelphia Little Flyers. Although Nolan went back to Tier 2 for his Bantam years, he was constantly putting up points and constantly asked why he was playing Tier 2. Although Nolan is not the tallest or biggest player, he is one of the smartest and has incredible vision and speed which allows him to create his own time and space. Nolan is known for his passing and playmaking ability which makes him extremely effective every time he is on the ice.
