The Cowichan Capitals are pleased to announce the signing of 2003 born forward Kobe Verbicky for the 2019/20 season. Verbicky was previously at Edmonton Oil Kings camp after being drafted in the 2nd round, 23rd overall by Edmonton in 2018. The 16 year old is from Victoria, and last year played for the North Island Silvertips of the British Columbia Major Midget League. He finished in the team lead in points, notching 12 goals and 23 assists for 35 points in 35 games. After his midget season was over Kobe played a pair of games with the Oil Kings and did not record a point. Verbicky is the 2nd 2003 born player to join the Capitals along with forward David Wang.
Verbicky will wear #16 in his Capitals debut on Wednesday evening against the Surrey Eagles at the Cowichan Community Centre.
