Vlanich returns to Nelson Leafs

High scoring forward back in the fold after being released by Langley.

Jamie Vlanich has returned to the Nelson Leafs.

The sniper left the squad at the end of October, having been called up to the  BCHL’s Langley Rivermen.

At the time, Vlanich was leading the team and the league in scoring.

The 20-year-old Trail native only played a few games for the Langley squad before being released Thursday night.

Leafs’ head coach Frank Maida said Vlanich will be in the line up tonight in Princeton.

“He’ll be playing today,” Maida confirmed when the news broke on Friday morning.

Maida noted that Vlanich will be a boost to his squad’s offence.

At the time, Vlanich’s departure from the Nelson squad was amiable as Maida called the KIJHL a “development league.”

The Leafs travel to Princeton tonight to play the Posse, followed by another road game tomorrow against Osoyoos.

The next home game is set for Wednesday when Grand Forks visits the NDCC.
