“Maryland is a state full of talented hockey players, but Dimitry stands out because his “will” and desire are always at the forefront of his game. He has always been extremely talented, but his elevation as one of our leaders and the growth in the details of his game has been monumental. To say we are proud of him is an understatement. Anchorage is trying to build something special, and guys like Dimitry Kebreau will help with this process. He’s a great player, an even better teammate, and is beloved by anyone that has been lucky enough to know him. Congrats to Dima, and his family. They have supported him every step of the way,” said Black Bears head coach Clint Mylymok.
