Time for the Wayne Gretzky Trophy

Michael Naylor, Slocan, B.C.

When will there be a trophy for the most assists?

There is one for every other category, even most gentlemanly, and often the assist is the prettiest part of a play.

You know the ones: the scorer just looks over to the passer and says "nice pass."

It's time.

No question what the name of the trophy should be. I remember a certain player who has more assists than any other has points.
