  • Participated in Canada West's 2011 World Junior A Challenge Evaluation Camp.
  • Vernon Central had this to say about Crisfield following a recent game against the Penticton Vees: 
  • One indication of the Viper effort was their hit total of 52, the most in any game this season by the Vipers. Leading the way was Geoff Crisfield, who laid hellacious hits on two of the Reilly brothers, Mike and Connor. Troy Stecher jumped Crisfield after the hit on Stecher’s defence partner, Mike Reilly. Crisfield won a decision in that bout, in perhaps his most emotional and most physical game as a Viper.

He was named the Chrysler Division's December Player of the Month en route to earning an invitation to the league's All-Star game, where he was named Captain of the Chrysler Division All-Stars. He also recorded 2 assists and 30 penalty minutes while playing 6 games with the Alberta Junior Hockey League's Calgary Mustangs.
