The younger brother of the more celebrated Mud Bruneteau was a solid right-winger who contributed on offence. In addition to a decent NHL career, he was a prolific scorer in the minors in several different leagues.

Born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, Bruneteau played junior with the Winnipeg Rangers then two years with the Duluth Zephyrs of the Thunder Bay Senior League. After spending the 1939-40 season with the Omaha Knights, Bruneteau played eleven games the next season with the Detroit Red Wings. The bulk of his time during this time was spent with the senior Quebec Aces.

Beginning in 1944-45, Bruneteau was a regular for three years in Detroit. He often formed a solid line with Carl Liscombe and Murray Armstrong. By 1947-48, the Wings were set at right wing with Gordie Howe, Pete Horeck, Bep Guidolin, and Fern Gauthier. Bruneteau spent six years in the minors where he enjoyed his most productive years from an offensive standpoint. Highlights included scoring 82 goals in two seasons with the USHL's Omaha Knights and being placed on the league's second all-star team in 1950 and 1951. He also skated in the American and Central leagues and was voted on to the IHL's second all-star team after scoring 23 goals for the Milwaukee Clarks. The veteran forward retired in 1954 after playing one season with the Quebec League's Sherbrooke Saints.
