“Tyson is a young player that impressed our staff at our Rookie Camp this fall, and we are excited to be able to add him to our roster for this season.“ Said Head Coach and GM Ryan Donald. “Tyson is an exceptional young man that will be a great fit within our organization as a player and a person. We look forward to being a part of Tyson’s development and helping him achieve his goals in the future.”

“Jagger is a player that we think can step in and help us immediately.“ Said Head Coach and GM Ryan Donald. “He is a 20-year old that can help us in all situations, both offensively and defensively. He possesses good size, athleticism, and length in his game, as well as a good shot. We are excited to work with Jagger to take the next step in his career.”
Jason Marsella joins the Bucks after spending last season with Avon Old Farms School of the USHS Prep where he scored 3 goals and added 13 assists in 27 games.

Marsella joined the Bucks early last week but has yet to play in a game for the Bucks.
“Jason is a young man that will benefit from a fresh start with our organization.“ Said Head Coach and GM Ryan Donald. “He is someone that our staff is familiar with and is a player that can play in a lot of situations and is very versatile. He is a strong skater that is comfortable with the puck on his stick and will be relied on to contribute to all 3 zones. We are looking forward to helping prepare Jason for his NCAA career at Yale.”
The Cranbrook Bucks wish to welcome Tyson, Jagger and Jason to the organization and to the City of Cranbrook.
