Nickerson is a towering defenseman. Strong defensively but not much of an offensive threat. Able and willing to hit the opponents. Decent skater for a big guy. Stands up for his teammates and willing to drop the gloves if needed. Has had to adapt his rough style to avoid sitting in the penalty box. (EP 2018)
