Dubenski Back with the ‘Birds

Jul 13, 2020


(July 13, 2020) Halifax, NS – The Halifax Thunderbirds announced they have re-signed Pete Dubenski to a one-year deal.


Dubenski saw action in five games this past season. He had a .716 save percentage with a 12.81 goals against average.


“I’m thrilled to be coming back to the Thunderbirds for another season,” said Dubenski.  “Seeing how much the city of Halifax embraced the team was amazing and I can’t wait to get back to playing in front of the fans again. We had a lot of momentum building from last year and I know we will continue that success into the new season.”


Dubenski was selected 34th overall in the 2013 Entry Draft by the Calgary Roughnecks.


The 6’0″ goalie spent time in Saskatchewan backing up NLL veterans Aaron Bold and Tyler Carlson, prior to signing with the San Diego Seals in 2018.


“We were very lucky to sign Pete last year,” said Head Coach Mike Accursi.  “His experience and poise in the net was a huge asset for us. He played really well every time he was asked to go in and give us a big stop. We are glad to have Dubs back at the nest next year.”


In WLA play, Dubenski had a stellar 2019 season, appearing in 10 games, posting a 6-2 record in 434:29 minutes between the pipes. His performance only improved heading into the playoffs, as he led the Shamrocks to a WLA title with a 7-1 record, and an impressive .819 save percentage. Dubenski appeared in each Mann Cup game, standing tall in the crease with a .852 save percentage.
