In two seasons at Bellevue, Guzman was a two-time first team all-NSAA selection and also a member of the first team all-A.I.I. this season. During his Bruin career Guzman totaled 13 goals and seven assists, appearing in 34 games during that span. Of his 13 career goals, three went for game-winners.
