The latest commitment to the Estevan Bruins will bring a blend of size and skill to the forward group for the upcoming Centennial Cup season.
The Estevan Bruins are proud to announce that forward Mark Rumsey (’01) of St. John’s, Newfoundland has committed to the Bruins for the 2021-22 season!
Rumsey (6’3, 200lbs) joins the Bruins after playing the last two seasons in the QMJHL, most recently with the Cape Breton Eagles. In 2019-20 as an 18-year-old, Rumsey racked up 29 PTS (12G, 17A) in 55GP between Moncton and Acadie-Bathurst. Then during the 2020-21 shortened COVID-season, Rumsey added 11 PTS (4G, 7A) in 30GP with Acadie-Bathurst and Cape Breton.
“I’m super excited to be joining the Estevan Bruins organization. I look forward to getting to Estevan and helping the team chase a National Championship!” – Mark Rumsey
“We are really excited that Mark has decided to come to Estevan. He has size, a very good skill set, and he’s a player that competes very hard. We believe Mark will be an excellent two-way player that has the ability to put up some points for us. I know his previous coaches and they all speak highly of his character and we believe he can add some leadership to our team this season.” – Jason Tatarnic, Head Coach/GM
