The Nelson Leafs recently concluded an epic Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season, making it to the Teck Cup Final before dropping a heartbreaking series to the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
Along the way, Nelson won the Murdoch Division Regular Season title with a 31-10-0-1 record — 16 points ahead of second place Beaver Valley Nitehawks before capturing the Murdoch Division Playoff crown with two very competitive series wins against rivals Castlegar Rebels and Beaver Valley.
Nelson then dethroned the Kootenay Conference Champs from Kimberley in six games to advance to the Teck Cup Final against Revelstoke.
During the Conference Final, Nelson rallied from a two-game deficit to defeat the Dynamiters.
