A small tributary of Goat River between North Star Creek and Milk River was formerly identified as La Salle Creek, but the name was cancelled in 1965 because of its close proximity to Laselle Creek. At the same time, the spelling Leselle was changed to La Salle to be consistent with the La Salle Lakes across the Fraser River.
