History

2006-07: Brett Bruneteau skated in 55 games for the Omaha Lancers in his second USHL season. He scored 12 goals with 28 assists and was plus-10 with 55 penalty minutes. The Lancers finished first in the West Division but were upset in the first round of the playoffs. Bruneteau had 1 assist and was minus-one with 6 penalty minutes in five playoff games. Bruneteau committed to playing college hockey at North Dakota in 2008-09 and was selected by Washington in the fourth round (108th overall) of the 2007 NHL Draft.

2007-08: After being traded from Omaha to Indiana over the summer, Bruneteau began the year with the Ice; appearing in 14 games and scoring 1 goal with 7 assists and going plus-1 with 8 penalty minutes. In November he was traded to Des Moines in exchange for defenseman and fellow North Dakota recruit Ben Blood. Limited to 21 games with the Buccaneers due to injury, he scored 4 goals with 5 assists and was minus-11 with 13 penalty minutes. Des Moines finished last in the West Division.

2008-09: Bruneteau returned to the USHL rather than beginning his college career and skated for Des  Moines in his fourth USHL season. He was one of the few veterans on a young Buccaneers squad that would finish with the league's second-worst record.  The 19-year-old was the team's third-leading scorer with 15 goals and 28 assists and was minus-22 with 65 penalty minutes.

2009-10: Bruneteau played in 27 games for North Dakota as a freshman. He scored 1 goal with 4 assists and was minus-two with 6 penalty minutes. The Fighting Sioux captured the WCHA's Broadmoor Trophy playoff championship after finishing fourth during the regular season and faced Yale in the NCAA tournament.

2010-11: Bruneteau appeared in just four games for the Fighting Sioux in his sophomore season. He had no points nor penalty minutes. Bruneteau completed his degree at North Dakota and announced he was transferring to Vermont, where he would be eligible to play immediately as a graduate student.

2011-12: Bruneteau joined his younger brother Nick Bruneteau, a sophomore defenseman, at the University of Vermont. He skated in 33 of 34 games for the Catamounts, scoring 4 goals with 6 assists, and as minus-15 with 25 penalty minutes. Vermont finished last in Hockey East; winning just six games.

2012-13: Bruneteau skated in 33 games for Vermont in his senior season. He scored 6 goals with 7 assists and was -6 with 14 penalty minutes. The Catamounts finished tied with Maine for seventh in Hockey East and lost to Boston College in a Hockey East quarterfinal series. Bruneteau was not signed to a contract by Washington in August 2013: becoming an unrestricted free agent.

 

Future

Bruneteau was not tendered a contract by the Washington Capitals prior to the 2013-14 season, and currently is not playing pro hockey.

1997 draft reentries

As the 1997 NHL entry draft quickly appraoches most of the names being
touted as the next stars in the NHL are Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and
Robeto Luongo. But there are a select few (51 to be exact) who have already
been drafted into the NHL but failed to come to terms with there respective
teams, so they will be re-entering the 1997 NHL draft. These players have
not been signed for numerous reasons such as money (which is the most
common), the player in the view of his draftee team did not feel the player
deserved a contract or the player may have felt he would have a better shot
at making the NHL with a different organization. Here is a list of the more
prominent players who will be attending the NHL draft in Pittsburgh Saturday.

Brad Larsen: A two time World Junior gold medalist with Team Canada. Larsen was
the team captain in 1997. An honest player who gives it his all
every shift and every game. A projected 3rd line winger, with
tones of leadership. A player every team needs come playoffs.

John Tripp: This guy hits like a Mack truck. Was a scoring force for the OHL
champion Oshawa Generals durin there playoff drive, but don’t
expect too many goals at the NHL level from yet another Kingston
born hockey player (Doug Gilmour & Kirk Muller). Another 3rd
line winger, who loves to hit and hit to hurt. If Tripp
gained some confidence from the OHL playoffs then just maybe he Read more»
