History

Tyler Redenbach has made himself known among the CHL circles in a short time. He originally started his WHL career with the Prince George Cougars during the 2001-02 season. During the 2002-03 season, he was traded to the Swift Current Broncos.

2003-04: Took took home the Greyhound WHL Player of the Week from December 9th to January 4th, he was named the Husky WHL Player of the Month for December as well as the CHL Player of the Month for December. The quest also included a 15 game scoring streak, which tied an WHL record. He was an All-Star member of the RE/MAX Canada/Russia Challenge Series. He solidified his campaign by walking away with the Bob Clarke Trophy (top scorer).

2004-05: Redenbach seemed to head into the season under the impression that the year may be long because of Swift Current’s depleted roster. He would go on to spend the latter part of the season with the Broncos before getting traded to the Lethbridge. From there, he added a little more offensive punch to an already tough Central Division team. He would make the playoffs for the third consecutive year of his WHL career, which also happens to be the third team in which he has done so. The Coyotes walked away from Redenbach but he was signed as a free agent by Boston in 2005.

2005-06: Made professional debut with the Providence Bruins in the AHL. Was one of the key components in their offense. He was the team’s third leading scorer and lead everyone with a plus-19 ranking. He also finished 11th overall in rookie scoring.

<p>2006-07: Started the season with the Baby B’s before being traded back to the Coyotes. Continued season in San Antonio. Was a bit behind last year’s totals as he also suffered a setback due to injury. However, he did show an innate ability to create chances and providing scoring.
