Flyers add Brayden Sherbinin to 2022/23 defensive line-up
Fife Flyers are delighted to welcome defenceman Brayden Sherbinin to Kirkcaldy as he joins the club for the 2022/23 Elite Ice Hockey League season.
The 29-year-old left-hander has a wealth of experience and joins the Flyers after two successful seasons in France's top-flight with clubs Gap and Cergy-Pontoise.
Before making the move to Europe, Sherbinin spent three seasons in the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) with Rapid City Rush, Kansas City Mavericks and Norfolk Admirals. During his ECHL career he appeared 132 times and scored 24 points.
Commenting on joining the Flyers roster, Sherbinin said:
"I play a strong two-way game and have elite skating ability which not only allows me to play strong defensively but also jump into the rush and create offence.
"I will give it my all night in and night out to contribute and help the Flyers get back on the winning side this season and be a strong playoff contender.
"Hockey has taken me to places I never thought I would have been, and this year is no exception. I'm excited to see a new part of the world and experience a new place.
"I'm very fortunate for the opportunity with the Fife Flyers for this upcoming season."
Also commenting on the newest signing, Associate Coach Jeff Hutchins said:
"Brayden is a strong skater that plays a solid defensive game. He has the ability to join the rush to help create offence.
"He is coming off two successful seasons in France's top league, we will be looking for him to provide leadership being an older professional."
