Shane Berschbach

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Grand Rapids Griffins on Tuesday announced the signing of former Western Michigan University forward Shane Berschbach to a one-year contract.

Berschbach, 23, previously spent four seasons with Western Michigan from 2010-14, collecting 117 points (39-78—117) in 146 career collegiate games. The Clawson, Mich. native potted 38 points (16-22—38) in 40 contests with the Broncos during the 2013-14 season, earning him NCHC Offensive Player of the Week honors on three separate occasions. Last season, he also appeared in three games with the ECHL’s Kalamazoo Wings, tallying one goal and one assist.

In 2011-12, the 5-foot-10, 165-pound forward helped lead the Broncos to their first CCHA Tournament Championship since 1986 when he finished second on the team in scoring with 32 points (10-22—32) in 37 games.

Prior to attending Western Michigan, Berschbach served as a member of the USHL’s Indiana Ice from 2008-10 under current Griffins head coach Jeff Blashill. In two seasons with the Ice, Berschbach potted 79 points (32-47—79) in 98 regular season games and 17 points (8-9—17) in 19 playoff appearances. In 2008-09, he helped Indiana capture the Clark Cup by posting 44 points (20-24—44) in 56 regular season games and 10 points (4-6—10) in 10 playoff games. A two-time USHL All-Star, Berschbach made the 2009 U.S. World Junior A Challenge team, where he was named to the All-World line after his team won the tournament.

Group tickets for eight guaranteed home dates at Van Andel Arena are now on sale along with 2014-15 season ticket packages. Single-game tickets will go on sale to the public in September.
