Tyler Bunz (born February 11, 1992) is a former Canadian ice hockey goaltender who last played as a prospect within the Edmonton Oilers organization of the National Hockey League (NHL). Bunz was selected by the Edmonton Oilers in the 5th round (121st overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.[1]

On March 19, 2012, the Oilers signed Bunz to a three-year entry-level contract.[2]

On March 22, 2014, Bunz was hit in the throat by a puck, leading to a life-threatening injury. Fortunately, he was able to recover from his injury without needing surgery, and could resume his playing career.[3]

In the 2014–15 season, on April 2, 2015, Bunz made his NHL debut against the Los Angeles Kings. He substituted in for Ben Scrivens, who had given up 5 goals, to start the third period. Bunz surrendered 3 goals on 12 shots and the Kings routed the Oilers 8–2.[4]'
