Bunz played in 10 of 15 playoff games for Medicine Hat and was 4-6 with one shutout and one overtime loss and had a 2.97 GAA and .912 save percentage.
2011-12: Bunz signed a three-year entry level contract with Edmonton in May 2012 after completing his fourth WHL season with Medicine Hat. Playing in a career-high 62 games for the Tigers, he received the Del Wilson Trophy as the WHL's top goalie and was named to the East Conference 1st All-Star team. He finished with a record of 39-22 with five of the losses coming in overtime and recorded three shutouts. Bunz had a 2.57 goals against and .921 save percentage. Medicine Hat finished third in the Central Division with the WHL's fifth-best record and reached the second round of the playoffs. Bunz was 4-4 in eight playoff games with one shutout and had a 2.78 goals against and .925 save percentage.
A positionally and technically sound goalie, Bunz has shown excellent improvement year over year in the WHL. While he isn't considered a particularly big or athletic netminder, he has enough size and agility that he's considered among the best Canadian goalies his age. He also plays with a great deal of confidence and by all accounts gives his teammates playing in front of him the same confidence whenever he's between the pipes.
Bunz will play his first pro season as the possible back-up goalie in Oklahoma City but could see time in the ECHL level with the Stockton Thunder. He will be in a battle with Oliver Roy for the position and might need more playing time as a starter in Stockton.
