Leafs Horswill to play for UVic next season

The Nelson native will play hockey, study business at University of Victoria.

Nelson native and Leafs forward Linden Horswill will be playing hockey for the University of Victoria next season.

Horswill has another year of eligibility with the Leafs, but has decided to pursue his education.

“My dad went to UVic and apparently they have a really good business program there that I’m going to try and get into,” explained Horswill.

He doesn’t plan to head out until next semester so Horswill will finish off this season, and the playoffs, with the Leafs. He knows that this weekend’s series of games is big. With only three matches left, the Leafs are hanging on to a two point lead over Beaver Valley for top spot in their division.

The two squads meet for the last game of the season.

“Lots of guys are looking forward to the Beaver Valley game. But if we don’t win the next two, the last game won’t matter.”

The Leafs play tonight at home against Grand Forks.
