Once a Bronco. Always a Bronco. Saluting Our Graduating Players – #71 Alec Saretzky


Alec Saretzky joined the Broncos to start the 2021/22 Season and was another two-year force with the
Green and Gold before graduating as a 20-year-old.
After being drafted 4 th overall in the SJHL by the Melville Millionaires in 2017, Saretzky finished out his
three-year U18 AAA career, then took his talents to the BCHL, before being acquired by the Broncos as a
19-year-old in 2021/22.
With one of the most deceptive and accurate shots in the SJHL, Saretzky cemented himself as a goalie’s
nightmare, finishing his career with over 0.5 goals/game through 108 games (56 goals) in the regular
In his first season as a Bronco, the Saskatoon, SK native, never missed a game. He finished 7 th in the
league in points and 6 th in goals with 29g-33a-62pts in 58 games played.
“Alec shows so much poise on the ice. He’s a cerebral type of player that finds the right areas to score
goals better that anyone. He constantly makes the players around him better and always found ways to
provide the Broncos with offense,” said Head Coach and GM, Scott Barney.
This year, in Saretzky’s final season, he led the team in goals with 27, while finishing third in points with
46, while playing only 50 games.
Along with his talents on the ice, Saretzky was also leaned on in the dressing room as a veteran that the
team could rally around.
“He’s got a great sense of humor. His character traits are one of a kind. He keeps the players loose, and
he has an ability to draw players around him. A type of guy you love to have in your dressing room,”
added Barney.
Saretzky was a mainstay on the powerplay. No one has more powerplay goals in the SJHL than Saretzky
over the past two seasons (26)
108 points in 108 regular season games, Saretzky finishes his Broncos’ career as a point-per-game
Adding in 20 playoff games, he’ll graduate with 115 points (59g, 56a) in 128 games.
The Humboldt Broncos would like to thank Alec for his outstanding service to the team and the
community both on and off the ice and wish him nothing but success in his future endeavors.
Thank you, Alec.
Once a Bronco, Always a Bronco.
