Berens' college career began in the fall of 1994 when he debuted as a freshman for the Michigan State Spartans. From the start, he provided steady goal-scoring but progressively increased his offensive production every season. As a senior he was named alternate captain and responded with his best season, leading the nation with 36 goals. He was named an All-American and helped the Spartans win the CCHA Tournament. Unfortunately, as they had in each of Berens' season, Michigan State lost their opening game of the NCAA Tournament.
After graduating, Berens began his professional career. Over a three-season span he bounced between eight different teams in four leagues. While he did spend most of his time playing AAA hockey, Berens' decided to head to Europe in 2001. His travels continued with four more teams in as many years, playing in five leagues across three countries. He retired as a player in 2005.
After returning to North America, Berens became a youth hockey coach in the Chicago area. He's been the head coach in the Team Illinois AAA organization since 2006 and also operates his own ice hockey training academy.
