Bauer Hockey NAHL Forward of the Month: Cole Dubicki, Kenai River Brown Bears
Dubicki, 20, had his best month in an NAHL uniform in December. The 5’9/170 lbs. native of Seattle, WA, led all NAHL players during the month of December with 16 points, including 4 goals and 12 assists in just seven games played. That included four straight multi-point games and he recorded at least a point in all seven games during the month. Dubicki is a former two-time NAPHL All-Star and played in the NAPHL for four seasons from 2016-20 for the Everett Silvertips Elite program (now Northwest Stars). He is currently tied for 5th in NAHL scoring with 38 points in 31 games played so far this season. “Cole has really elevated his play through the month of December. He has found a way to impact the game consistently and continues to be a leader of our group on and off the ice,” said Brown Bears interim head coach Taylor Shaw.
“I owe a lot of success to my linemates, teammates, and coaching staff. Throughout December, we as a team collectively bought into the little details of the game which has translated to team success as a whole. I have focused on improving my personal game by taking care of both sides of the puck and turning strong defense into offense,” said Dubicki. “Returning to Kenai this year, I knew I would be stepping into a larger role and that excited me. My goal for this season is to continue working with my coaches to develop my game in all areas, and to continue being a leader both on and off the ice. I hope to reach my dream of earning an NCAA commitment and ultimately, professional hockey.”
