In his 3rd year with the Attack, he was team Captain. This was quite an accomplishment and honour for an 18 year old.
In 2013 he had 20 goals and 20 assists in 62 games. He was also top scorer for the Owen Sound team in the playoffs. His play earned him a spot playing for Canada at the World Under18 Championships helping the team earn a Gold Medal.

As captain of the Attack, Nastasiuk is very active in the community and prides himself on giving back to the community.
