skating skills should help him earn plenty of ice time
for the Colonials, and his local roots should make him
one of the most popular faces of the first-year program.
Statistics: Entering his freshman year at Robert
Morris. Buzek had 17 points (7 goals, 10 assists) for Tri-City
in the USHL last season.
He Does: At just 5-foot-9, 160 pounds, Buzek relies
heavily on his skating and puck skills. He’s not a big
scorer, although he attracted recruiting attention from Bowling
Green, Harvard and Union before choosing Robert Morris.
Bigger Picture: In many ways, Buzek could prove to
be a perfect fit for a first-year program like Robert Morris.
Swift on his feet, he plays with passion and energy, and is
likely to see ice time in all sorts of situations for the
Colonials. He’s the type of player that could catch
the attention of a new fan base, especially since he’s
one of them – Buzek is one of a handful of Pittsburgh-area
natives on the roster.
Morris coach Derek Schooley on Buzek: “He played
for the Pittsburgh Hornets, then he won the national junior
championship with the Pittsburgh Forge. Last year he won the
USHL [regular season] championship with Tri-City. He brings
the track record of the rise of Pittsburgh kids, and he’s
been a winner wherever he’s been.”
