Playing careerEdit

Berenzweig was traded by the New York Islanders to the Nashville Predators in exchange for a fourth-round selection in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.[1] He was later traded to the Dallas Stars, who left him unprotected in the 2003 NHL Waiver Draft. Unselected by any teams, Berenzweig cleared waivers and was assigned to the Stars' minor league affiliate Utah Grizzlies.[2] Berenzweig left the Grizzlies without permission and was suspended by the Stars for violating the terms of his contract.[3]
