You’re reading that right. Tyler Bunz is a real name.
Bunz made his NHL debut against the Los Angeles Kings. He substituted in for Ben Scrivens, who had given up 5 goals, to start the third period. Bunz surrendered 3 goals on 12 shots and the Kings routed the Oilers 8-2.
I was watching Marian Gaborik’s goals from the past season and his second goal of the game is when I stopped the video and saw that name on the jersey. Scren Bivens had pulled at this point and I see it says Bunz. Immediate screenshot. Flat out remarkable last name.
The goaltending situation in Edmonton might find it’s saving grace this summer if Cam Talbot is dealt and they happen to land him. Either way I’m probably gettin a Bunz jersey.
