Tomas Zaborsky - European Player of the Month

Tomas Zaborsky - European Player of the Month

12 Oct 2011 | -'s visitors decided in a vote that Tomas Zaborsky was the European Player of the Month for September 2011.

He scored 7 goals in the first 8 games. Zabo scored a goal in 5 consecutive games and had a very big influence to Ässät's good start of the Finnish league, SM-Liiga. In our vote for European Player of the Month in September he got two thirds of the votes.

Tomas Zaborsky, the soon 24 year old Slovak, was born in Banska Bystrica. He has been a natural goal scorer his whole career and his strengths are in the offensive play. Tomas moved already at the age of 18 to the Canadian junior league OHL after playing only 4 games in the Slovakian Extraleague. Zaborsky made good figures in OHL but never succeeded in AHL not to mention in the NHL (originally drafted by NY Rangers, later traded to Anaheim) where he has never played a game.

Zaborsky seems to have found his hockey home in Pori and Ässät where he feels good and where he is loved by the fans. Since coming to Pori Oct. 2009 he has played 100 games and scored 39 goals and assisted 37 times (dated 10.10.). This season Zaborsky has played in Ässät together with Czech Radek Smolenak and Canadian Stephen Dixon and this line has been one of the most effective in SM-liiga at the beginning of this season scoring together 14 goals and 10 assists in 10 games.

The European Player of the Month award is an award given by to a player in Europe every month during the season. The award is given to someone that made a great performance that month.
