The Nelson Leafs are winning both on and off the ice this Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season.

The Hockey Club recently began an awareness program for Autism during regular season home games in February. The Leafs are wearing newly minted jerseys to promote Autism Awareness sponsored by Remedy's RX on 700 Baker Street.

As part of the program, the club is raffling off a authentic Vancouver Canucks jersey signed by all members of the National Hockey League team.

The winner will be announced during Saturday's (February 10) KIJHL Game against Castlegar Rebels at the NDCC Arena.

Mallard's Source for sports would like to salute the Leafs with Team of the Week honours.
