Nelson Leafs shut out Border Bruins 5-0

Tenzin Mint has also been named one of the KIJHL’s three stars

Dylan Marshall made 24 saves as the Nelson Leafs shut out the Border Bruins 5-0 in Grand Forks on Tuesday.

Tyler Pisiak, Presley Gordon, Johnny Carmichael, Rhett Hamilton and Bryce Sookro each scored for Nelson (20-9-1), which leads the Neil Murdoch Division by nine points.

Justin Dueck made 54 saves for the league-worst Border Bruins (4-23-2).

Leafs netminder Tenzin Mint was also named one of the KIJHL’s three stars of the week.

The Nelson native made 51 saves against 53 shots through two games against Grand Forks and the Castlegar Rebels last weekend for a .962 save percentage and 1.00 goals-against average.

Mint just needs one more win to tie his career high from the 2019-20 season.

Nelson next visits the Columbia Valley Rockies on Friday.
