The six timeall-star retired in 1978.

Berenson coached the St. Louis Blues and Buffalo Sabres after he stopped playing. He then became head coach of the Michigan Wolverines men’s ice hockey team from 1984 to 2017.He led the Wolverines to two CCHA championships (1996 and 1998) along with 11 Frozen Four appearances, and 11 CCHA regular season championships, to name a few through his tenure.

Berenson was inducted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame in 2005 and the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 2018.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Bruins to the Northern National,” says The CG Realm Owner, Jeremy Richard. “We can’t wait for fans to meet them at the show!”
