The 6’3” native of Lloydminster, Alberta scored 16 goals and 15 assists for 31 points last season in 53 games.  Busch was required to take on all sorts of roles, playing on every line throughout the season, mostly at centre but some games he played on the wing.

He spent his first year of pro in Sweden with Tranas AIF before returning stateside to play for the Fort Wayne Comets in 2021-22.  He moved to the Iowa Heartlanders in 2022-23 scoring 14 goals in 56 games in the ECHL that season.

Busch missed 15 games last season with a shoulder injury but returned for the last couple of weeks of the regular season.  He led the Devils in the playoffs with 3 goals in 4 games.

Head Coach Pete Russell spoke about re-signing Tyler Busch:

“Tyler can play anywhere up and down the line-up and in any forward position.  He is a big body, that gets to the net and battles hard in the tough areas all over the ice.

“He has good speed and throws his weight around on the forecheck and he chipped in with some huge goals last season.

“We really missed him on the ice when he was injured last season, and we really missed his presence in the locker room.  He is a natural leader and a phenomenal teammate.”
