Back with the Berkley Bruins

August 8, 2014

Tim Muhsman has opted to put off school for another year and return to the Berkley Bruins of the Midwest Jr. Hockey League for a second season.

Muhsman, a 6-foot-1, 210 pound, 1994 birth-year forward who had originally committed to attend and play hockey at Indiana Tech University in 2014-2015, was second on Berkley in scoring in 2013-2014 with 20 goals, 34 assists, 54 points in 36 games while racking up 100 minutes in penalties.

Muhsman told that besides building on his stats, he wants to continue his leadership role as a Bruins captain and round out his game to be more college-ready a year from now.

“Coming back to Berkley wasn’t a decision I made overnight,” Muhsman explained. “After I de-committed from Indiana Tech and thought about what I really wanted to do for the upcoming season, my heart was just with the Bruins because of all the potential this team really has this coming season. That made me really excited and I wanted to be a part of it.”

Berkley missed the MWJHL playoffs in 2013-2014.

Berkley head coach Dan Pszenyczny likes what Muhsman brings to the Bruins.

“When Mush is on the ice, he controls the ice by playing with hockey intelligence and using his body,” said Pszenyczny. “He plays his position very well and makes his teammates better. He has a great shot, passes very well and he’s got speed for his size. Mush is a player that every coach wants on his team and every player wants as a teammate.”

What you think about “Back with the Berkley Bruins”

  1. “Mush” has the size & strength to domminate coupled with his ability to score and by being a leader he should be able to play at a good NCAA D3 School. I see him as developing in to one of the top player’s in the entire MW League this season.

  2. With qyite a few returners Berkley should improve from last year. They also added Wojo from the MC Monarchs as Gilman thinks he is a GM now ha ha.
    Funny how Gilman bragged about playing in Mount Clemons and first chance he got he took off to Fraser then has the nerve to say that MC stands for Motor City not Mount Clemons … OK Mr Egomaniac we get it … I thought you might change name to MG Monarchs oh I forgot you named the team after you self being such a Monarch ha ha.
