Stars Sign Three

Some great news from earlier today.

The Battlefords North Stars would like to announce the signing of 3 players from the Saskatchewan Midget AAA League. 

Dillion Forbes, Jared Samborki, and Nathan Zimbaluk have all been signed by the North Stars for the 2011-12 SJHL season. 

Forbes, 18, from Battleford, was the captain of the Battlefords AAA Stars this past season where he had 3 goals and 10 assists to go along with 154 PIM in 36 games. Jared

Samborski, 18, from North Battleford, also captained his AAA Saskatoon Blazers, where he had 16 goals and 19 assists for 35 PTS with 74 PIMS. 

Nathan Zimbaluk, 18, from Regina, was acquired in a trade last season played for the Regina Pat Canadians where he had 5 goals and 7 assists with 64 PIMS.

 The North Stars would like to welcome these 3 to the Battlefords as we prepare for camp which will open August 31st.


I'll probably post another piece tomorrow with some more personal reaction about these signings, but I just got home from the Wayne Pruden Golf Tournament and I'm feeling rather tired! Feel free to weigh in on the signings!

After watching Forbes play last season, I think he will be a good defencemen in the SJHL. I was really impressed with him during the playoffs and during the season in AAA. Samborski is good.. He led the Blazers in scoring. He's small but real skilled. Maybe in the mold of a Logan Hearuf..
After the stars got Zimbaluk for Perarult I went to a AAA's game at the CC when they were playing Regina. I was actually suprised how well he played. He's big and a pretty good skater. From what I remember he was real solid in his own zone.

I worked out of Shaunavon two years ago and watched Zimbaluk play for the Broncos against the Pats, Bronco's had him out as a 16 yr old with three minutes left in a one one tie. Kinda surprised he didn't stick in Swift Current last year.
