Ross Bekkering signs in Holland

Thanks to our well-informed-yet-wishes-to-remain-anonymous Alberta correspondent, we get some details on 6'8" Ross Bekkering's signing to a professional contract in Holland. Both Ross and brother Henry, who played last season in Holland, have the same agency and will compete against each other in the same league. Henry's team was fourth in the league and quarter finalists in the playoffs last year. Now he's moved up to the top team in the country (won league and playoffs) - a team that will also play at a high level of European club competition this season. Ross is going to ZORG AND ZEKERHEID LEIDEN the team that finished fifth in the league last year and were playoff semi-finalists (beating Henry's former team in the quarters). Congratulations to arguably one of the best brother tandems in CIS history (although Rob and Mike Smart, Norm and Brad Hann, Pasquale brothers, Kazanowski brothers, Mike and Jim Zareski and others could easily lay claim to that title).

Congratulations to both Ross and Henry Bekkering.
