“I’m very honored and excited to join the Estevan Bruins organization. I know the long history of the Bruins and I’m looking forward to become a part of it.” – Zach Burfoot
“We are very excited that Zach has decided to join us for next season. Zach is a very skilled player that skates very well, has excellent vision and he has proven he can put up some points. Zach and his family are familiar with our program as his father Scott played for the Bruins. It’s always nice to see Alumni send their son back to our program, as it speaks volumes about all the people that have been involved in our organization over the years. We’re looking forward to next season and Zach is another piece to the puzzle as hosts of the 2022 Centennial Cup tournament.” – Jason Tatarnic, Head Coach/GM
