RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Rush, ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes and AHL’s Springfield Falcons, announced the re-signing of forward Kale Kerbashian for the 2015-16 ECHL.

Kerbashian posted the best statistical season of his career last season. The 25-year-old started the season with the Evansville IceMen, recording 28 points (9g-19a) in 37 games. It was with the Rush that he took off, as he notched 34 points (12g-22a) in 28 games, along with a +24 rating. His season totals shattered his career-highs in each statistical category, as he ultimately finished with 62 points (21g-41a) in 65 games and a +7 rating. Kerbashian continued his success in the playoffs for the Rush, finishing just shy of a point-per-game pace with eight points (1g-7a) in nine games.

A native of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Kerbashian, enters his fifth season as a professional, and his second with the Rush. Over the course of his previous four seasons, Kerbashian has played in 192 career games, racking up a total of 153 points (59g-94a) across the AHL, ECHL and CHL. It was in the CHL with the Allen Americans that Kerbashian won two Ray Miron President’s Cups in back-to-back seasons in the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons. Prior to playing professionally, he played his junior hockey in the OHL with the London Knights, Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors and Sarnia Sting.
