History

Zach Bearson was a highly-touted power forward during his USHL days, helping lead the Waterloo Black Hawks to their first ever Clark Cup championship in 2003-04. The Naperville, Ill native made great strides on the statistical side of his game in 2004-05 doubling his points total from the year before. He completed the most recent season ranked fifth on the Waterloo roster in scoring with 36 points (18 goals, 18 assists) in 51 appearances. He was a member of Team World in the 2005 USHL Prospects/All-Star game.

2006-07:  Bearson saw very limited ice time this season, in part due to battling illnesses. He played in just five games and posted no points. He was a +2 with two penalty minutes.

2007-08: Bearson has been out of action all but one game as a coach’s decision. After playing in only five games in 2006-07, not surprisingly, he is still without any points in his career.

Talent Analysis

Isn’t one to shy away from the physical aspects of the game. He is strong on his skates and likes to make good use of his 6’2 frame and long reach. He is quite good along the boards and in the corners.

Future

Bearson is still enrolled at the University of Wisconsin, but is no longer on the team.
