The Nelson Leafs executive saluted three graduating players prior to Monday’s Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoff game against the Castlegar Rebels at the NDCC Arena.

Injured goalie Billy Gorn and forwards Sam Weber and Dale Howell were all presented with mementos to commemorate their last year of Junior B hockey.

Howell, who came to the Leafs in a trade this offseason, was a key cog on the Leafs roster this season, playing 45 games and scoring 21 goals and adding 24 assists.

Weber, a graduate of Nelson Minor Hockey, played four seasons in the Green and White, finishing his career playing 140 games and 41 points.

Gorn spent a very brief time with Nelson, coming to the Leafs prior to Christmas to assume the starting netminding spot.

However, an injury suffered during practice in mid-January sidelined the Edmonton native for the duration of the season.
