Dyck was projected by some experts to go slightly higher than 206th. He had a great 2021-22 season with Cranbrook of the BCHL, scoring at well over a point-per-game pace, and has committed to UMass next season.
Tyson Dyck can rip it – here's one of his 34 goals last season. With 75 points in 54 games, he was named to the BCHL All-Rookie Team. #GoSensGo pic.twitter.com/4m9Djhs6P0— Sens Prospects (@SensProspects) July 8, 2022
It will almost certainly be a while before Tyson Dyck gets anywhere near the NHL, but it will certainly be interesting to see how he does in the NCAA next year.
Welcome to the Senators, Tyson!
