KIJHL: Nelson Leafs trade Nolan Percival to Beaver Valley

The Nelson player was traded to the Nitehawks on Saturday.

Leaf forward Nolan Percival was traded to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks on Saturday for future considerations. McLellan said the 18-year-old Nelson native, who has played with the Leafs since the 2012/13 season, was looking for a fresh start and an opportunity to play away from home. Percival’s career KIJHL totals, all with the Nelson Leafs, are 125 games played, 14 goals, 26 assists, and 40 points. So far this season Percival has played 23 games, gaining four points on one goal and three assists.

Don’t panic, but Nelson has slipped to fourth place in the division, as the surprising Grand Forks Border Bruins now have 26 points, one more than the Leafs. The saving grace is that the Leafs have four games in hand on the bears, including a home game Wednesday night. They host Castlegar at 7 p.m. at the Nelson and District Community Centre.
