Robert Morris
Fr. | RW | Greensburg, Pa.

Buzek's 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.


Key Statistics: Entering his freshman year at Robert Morris. Buzek had 17 points (7 goals, 10 assists) for Tri-City in the USHL last season.

What 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.

The 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.

Robert 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.”
