Black Bears Acquire Burkovich
The Black Bears made their final deal in the “free agent” player market for this season, acquiring travel player Kyle Burkovich before the holiday break. Kyle has been successful in several travel programs from his start in Mite B through to Squirt A in 2004-5. “I am very excited to have Kyle join the team”, Coach James stated. “He is a solid skater, has great puck handling skills and good hockey instincts. He’ll certainly be a positive addition to our team.” Please join me in welcoming Kyle aboard!
