Light overall wear with a few nice board burns and scuff marks. Team LOA. As a kid growing up in suburban Chicago, Bubba's reputation as one of the best young players in North America preceded him wherever he went. Bubba led a group of Chicagoland players that traveled throughout the United States and Canada, destroying virtually everyone they ever played. The group included current Los Angeles Kings defenseman Joe Corvo, Jeff Dessner, Brad Newman, and a number of other fantastic players who would go on to play at the Division I level or higher. Following 3 years of prep school hockey in New England, Berenzweig was drafted by the New York Islanders. Bubba then went on to win 2 NCAA Championships at the University of Michigan, prior to going on to a brief but successful professional career in both the Nashville Predators and Dallas Stars organizations.

Defenseman Andrew "Bubba" Berenzweig was drafted by the New York Islanders but traded to the Nashville Predators during his fourth and final season with the University of Michigan.

Berenzweig turned pro for the 1999-00 season and spent the majority of his rookie season with the Milwaukee Admirals of the International Hockey League. However, in April of that season, "Bubba" got the call from the big club and found himself in an NHL lineup for the first time in his career. Berenzweig was held off the score sheet during his two game stint with the Predators. The following year he improved his point totals with the Admrials but was again unable to register a point during a five-game stay with Nashville but his inability to score at the big league level was soon to change.

In 2001-02 Berenzweig was much more effective for the Predators and earned himself a lot more time on their blue line. On November 10, 2001 Berenzweig found the back of the net for the first time when he managed to beat Senators goaltender Patrick Lalime. A little over a month later "Bubba" scored a goal and added two assists versus the mighty Detroit Red Wings and began to establish himself as a defenseman with offensive capabilities. In the end he played 26 games with Nashville and managed 10 points while spending 23 more games with Milwaukee before his season was cut short by a hip injury.
