“Dominates faceoffs and in freshman year, is an excellent young prospect, a really good young skater and his ability to dominate a game at his level is truly impressive.”

Minnesota State head coach Troy Jutting
“Tyler has great offensive instincts. And along with that, one of the quickest releases I have coached in 20 years. He’s an extremely competitive kid who wants to be on the ice in critical situations. Tyler has worked hard to develop his game in the defensive end and this is an area he has improved greatly upon throughout the course of the season. He will continue to improve as his body matures. Coming from a hockey family, Tyler understands what it takes both on and off the ice in order to be a successful player.”
