Nelson blasted the Bruins 11-1 in the Heritage City last week. Grand Forks is not the only winless team in the KIJHL. Both Chase Heat and Columbia Valley Rockiers are 0-8 to start the season.

The victory increases Nelson’s lead to three points over idle Beaver Valley Nitehawks in Murdoch Division standings. The Leafs lead all KIJHL teams in games played with 10 and have played three more times than Beaver Valley. Nelson returns to the ice Friday at the NDCC Arena against the Kimberley Dynamiters. The Leafs, closing out its third three-game weekend in a row Sunday in Spokane with an afternoon tilt against the Braves, plays a whopping 13 games in the month of October — seven coming at home. email@example.com The Nelson Leafs added to the already punchless season for Brent Batten and the Grand Forks Border Bruins.
