Once a Bronco. Always a Bronco. Saluting Our Graduating Players – #8 Sam Marburg

Sam Marburg began his Bronco career in 2020/21, making him a three-year veteran.
Marburg had to wait a little while longer to get the full feel of his Broncos’ jersey, as his first season was
unfortunately limited to just 4 games due to the COVID-19 shortened season. It didn’t stop the North
Vancouver, BC native from scoring his first career goal in his third game.
It didn’t take long for Marburg to cement himself as a pressure-creating thorn in the side of his
opponents. Regarded for his forecheck and punishing hits, he quickly became a player that was a
nightmare to play against and a power forward that no one wanted to enter a corner against.
At the end of his first full season with the Green and Gold, Marburg finished with 17 points (8g,9a) in 53
games to go along with 149 penalty minutes, good for third on the team.
“First off, he’s one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. He’s a real community leader and is
involved with everything we do in our support and volunteer work throughout the year. He has been
instrumental in mentoring, leading, and shaping future and younger players on what it means to be a
Bronco,” said Head Coach and GM, Scott Barney.
This past season, Marburg set new career highs in every category with 25 points (12g,13a) in just 48
games played.
“He’s a menace to play against every shift on every night. You have to be aware when he’s on the ice.
His offense grew with every game, and because the style of his play, it opened up so much room for his
teammates,” Barney added.
Marburg eclipsed the 100-game mark in the final weeks of this season. Adding in his 4 points in 19
career playoff games, he finishes his Broncos career with 47 points (22g,25a) and 293 PIMS in 124
The Humboldt Broncos would like to thank Sam 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, Sam.
Once a Bronco, Always a Bronco.
