Sal Balbi played for Brockport in the late-1990s. In 51 games he tallied 10 goals and 13 assists for 23 points while playing clean, disciplined hockey, racking up just 14 penalty minutes.
Sal passed away in February, barely 41 years of age.
Sal was taken by synovial sarcoma, a rare cancer.
To celebrate his life and to bring funding and awareness to this cancer, the Sal Balbi Memorial Hockey Game will be held Saturday, May 1, at Bill Gray’s Regional Iceplex.
