Good teams find ways to win.

As a matter of fact, Beaver Valley, winners of seven of eight games, is the best team in KIJHL with 53 points.

The Hawks added to their league best 25-4-1-0-2 record by scoring a 2-1-overtime victory over the hometown Nelson Leafs in KIJHL action Saturday afternoon in the annual New Year’s Eve contest at the NDCC Arena.

Leafs host Nitehawks in annual New Year's Eve Clash

Leafs Dale Howell and Karten Jang of the Hawks resume the Murdoch Division rivalry Saturday during the annual New Year's Eve clash at the NDCC Arena. Puck drop is 2 p.m.

As common as octopi hitting the ice in Detroit for a Red Wings NHL game, the Nelson Leafs teams host hockey games with a New Year’s Day twist.

The tradition began during the Western International Hockey League days when the Senior Maple Leafs clashed with archrival Spokane Jets in the annual New Year’s Day clash.

After the Senior Maple Leafs folded, the tradition was rekindled at the junior level, shifting back a day to New Year’s Eve when Nelson was a member of the Rocky Mountain Junior A Hockey League.
