The Nelson Leafs Hockey Society has extended head coach Frank Maida’s contract for another year.

Over the weekend, the volunteer group that oversees the Nelson Junior Leafs, inked the locally raised coach for the 2013-14 season.

“We are excited to extend the coaching contract for another season,” said Russell Stocks, president of the society. “We look forward to continuing our efforts with coach Maida to build championship quality and high-character teams on and off the ice for the fans of Nelson.”

Maida took over the Leafs bench duties in the summer of 2011.

In his first season as head coach/general manager, Maida guided the local club to a 30-17-0-5 record with the Leafs losing to the Castlegar Rebels in the first round of the KIJHL playoffs.

This past season the Leafs held the overall league for several weeks mid-season before a late season slump dropped the team to third in the Neil Murdoch Division with a 32-16-2-2 record. The Leafs lost to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks in a six-game first-round series.

The Leafs will host their spring camp this coming weekend at the Nelson and District Community Complex.

Maida and the Leafs have already started preparations for the coming season and look forward to hosting the Cyclone Taylor Cup in 2014.
