IceRays head coach Mike Lysyj had the following to say about Brust signing his tender:
“We’re excited to add Connor to our roster next season. Adding a player of his caliber with junior hockey experience is what we need on our back end. Plenty of teams were recruiting Connor and he choose Corpus Christi, that says a lot about what we are trying to build here.”
