Playing career 2001–present

Garett Bembridge (born July 6, 1981) is a Canadian professional Ice Hockey Right Wing currently playing for the Indy Fuel of the ECHL.

Playing career[edit]

Bembridge was selected by the New York Rangers in the 5th round (137th overall) of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, and was also selected by the Calgary Flames in the 7th round (207th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.[1] He spent his Major Junior career with the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League.[1]

In addition to playing professionally in the Central Hockey League, Bembridge has also played in the American Hockey League, ECHL, the German DEL2, the Italian Serie A, and the Asian ALH.[1][2]

For the 2013–14 season, Bembridge played for the Denver Cutthroats of the Central Hockey League.[2] During the 2013–14 season, Bembridge scoed 42 goals and 104 points in 66 regular season games, setting the Cutthroats' single-season regular season points record.[3][4] After the regular season, Bembridge was named to the 2013–14 season All-CHL Team, was awarded the Joe Burton Scoring Championship and announced as the Central Hockey League's 2013–14 Most Valuable Player.[3]

On July 9, 2014, Bembridge re-signed with the Cutthroats for the 2014-15 season.[5] On August 20, 2014, the Cutthroats suspended operations, immediately making Bembridge a free agent. Later that same day, he signed with the Missouri Mavericks of the then Central Hockey League.[2] On October 7, 2014, it was announced that the Central Hockey League had folded and had joined the ECHL, nullifying Bembridge's Central Hockey League contract with the team.[6][7] On October 9, 2014, Bembridge re-signed with the Mavericks under an ECHL contract.[8] After 7 games with the Mavericks, scoring 6 points, Bembridge was traded to inaugural club, the Indy Fuel, on November 12, 2014.[9]
