Robson Cramer, as he has done all season, was the big winner during Sunday’s Nelson Leafs Award’s Banquet at the Hume Hotel.

The skillful defenceman won a handful of awards at the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League franchise concluded the 2014-15 campaign with the annual award ceremony.

Nelson was eliminated from the playoffs by defending KIJHL champion Beaver Valley Nitehhawks Thursday.

The Hawks won the best-of-seven Murdoch Semi Final series 4-1.

Cramer, a double league award winner as top defenceman in the Murdoch Division and KIJHL, won Nelson’s Top Defenceman and regular season Team MVP.

Cramer, who is off to Simon Fraser of the BC Intercollegiate Hockey League next season, also was the top scorer during the regular season for Nelson.

Right behind Cramer on trips to the podium was rugged defenceman Darnel St. Pierre.

St. Pierre won the Coaches’ Award and Most Spirited Player honour.

It was announced that St. Pierre is off to join Cramer at SFU next season after agreeing to a commitment letter.

Rookie forward Sam Webber won the Most Popular Player award while Dylan Williamson was named top rookie and Playoff MVP was forward Rayce Miller.

The player award for dedication of hockey and academics was Brenden Chow while Leaf captain Aaron Dunlap was named Unsung Hero for the team.

Most Sportsmanlike Player and Most Improved Player went to forward Timothy Nichols.

The banquet concludes what has been a rollercoaster ride for the Green and White this season.

However, instead of dwelling on the negative, head coach Dave McLellan already is starting to put the pieces together for the 2015-16 campaign as Nelson hosts its rookie camp April 24-26 at the NDCC Arena.

The Main Camp is scheduled to follow May 15-17, also at the NDCC Arena.

For more information contact McLellan at or 250-352-1903.
