Kevin Bolibruck will be back with the Sheffield Steelers of Great Britain’s Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) for the 2010-11 season. When he arrived in England for the 2009-10 season, Kevin signed a two-year deal with the team.

Bolibruck played three seasons in the Ontario Hockey League from 1994-95 to 1996-97, all with the Peterborough Petes. The highlight season, by far, was his second, 1995-96, when the Petes won the Robertson Cup and lost out in the Memorial Cup final on their own ice.

Out of junior, Kevin spent a season with the Canadian National Team, 1997-98. From 1998-99 to 2002-03, Bolibruck played in the American Hockey League (AHL) with four different teams: Hamilton Bulldogs, Rochester Americans, Houston Aeros and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

In 2003-04, Kevin began his travels through the hockey world. Ironically, he started out with the same Sheffield Steelers before playing in Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway and Italy.

In his first year with Sheffield, Bolibruck helped the team to a regular season championship as well as the playoff championship. His winning ways continued in Denmark, helping Herning to the league championship in 2004-05. The team would finish a respectible third the next season.

This past season, Kevin was joined on the Steelers by fellow Peterborough native and OHL grad, Andrew Verner, as well as Ottawa 67s alumni, Jonathan Zion and Joe Talbot. None of the three are currently signed on for 2010-11. The group of OHL grads on the Sheffield Steelers are featured in this previous post.
