The Nelson Leafs paid tribute to a fallen friend on Thursday night.
As part of the opening ceremonies of the Cyclone Taylor Cup Tournament, a moment of silence was held for Nolan Handley, an alternate player for the Leafs who passed away after suffering serious injuries in a car accident in Trail.
Handley is one of three teens who were hurt in the accident.
Leafs management brought a Handley jersey to centre ice as part of the tribute. The jersey will be presented to his family at a later date.
