Malvik started in all 14 games for the Cobras in 2008 averaging 21.1ppg and 3.2apg including scoring 37 points against the AIS.  Malvik was a perfect fit for the team, who were looking to return to the SEABL Grand Final in 2008, although the season started slowly all signs were pointing towards them making a last season run.

The injury will keep Malvik out of the game for up to eight months at which time he will look to recommence his professional basketball career again.

Coach Grant Wallace couldn’t speak highly enough of Malvik, “Zach has been fantastic for the club on and off the floor and will create a huge gap to fill.  His scoring ability along will be tough to cover, though I am not sure we will be able to cover his work ethic, level headedness and winning attitude.”

“We wish him well with his surgery and look forward to him returning bigger and better in 2009.”

Malvik praised his team mates and the Club “I really enjoyed playing here in Australia, I have had a fantastic experience.  I am disappointed not to be able to help the team again in 2008, but I am committed 100% towards completing the necessary rehabilitation and getting back on the floor whether it be with the Cobras or in another League around the world.”

“I would like to thank everyone for their support.  I wish the team the best of luck for the remainder of the Season and will keep a close eye on the League from back home.”

The Club Kilsyth Cobras must rebound quickly from the bad news with Malvik, travelling to Albury Saturday night before returning home Sunday to face Southern Districts.
