Nelson Leafs head coach Chris Shaw, on being re-signed for one year, can be heard here.
Leafs Extend Shaw: As mentioned above, the Leafs will have Chris Shaw back behind the bench next season. Shaw told me he was "humbled" a bit at the start of the year, but has put together a team that will certainly give Beaver Valley a solid run in round one of the playoffs. Forwards Gavin Currie and Dustin Johnson are "good to go" for the post-season.
Bits & Bites: The Fernie suspensions continue with forward Zach Baba being slapped with a 6-gamer for a gross misconduct. Baba has now missed 20% of the KIJHL's regular season due to suspension, and this latest one is a league-high this season in terms of length. The Columbia Valley Rockies have put a bunch of vintage programs on their website. A must-see for any KIJHL history buff.
