Bloomfield's Verbeek off to Sacred Heart

The Springfield Jr. Blues have announced that forward Kyle Verbeek has committed to Sacred Heart University for the upcoming fall.

“We couldn’t be happier for Kyle,” said Jr. Blues head coach Andy Maher. “He’s worked hard for this opportunity and will be a great addition to Sacred Heart, both on and off the ice.”

Verbeek, from Bloomfield, started his NAHL career in 2007-08 with the Mahoning Valley Phantoms before being traded to Springfield in December. The son of former NHLer Pat Verbeek, the 20-year-old totaled 17 goals and 44 points in 53 regular-season games this past season.
