Bucks Forward Tyson Dyck Commits to NCAA DIV 1 University of Massachusetts

The Cranbrook Bucks are congratulating forward Tyson Dyck who has committed to NCAA Division 1 at the University of Massachusetts (UMASS). The club is based in Amherst, Massachusetts as a member of Hockey East.

Dyck, a native of Abbotsford, BC has established himself as the leader in most offensive categories in the young history of the Cranbrook Bucks; including goals, assists and points.

The Burnaby Winter Club alum joined the Bucks for the 2021 pod season in Penticton, putting up 5 points through an injury-shortened, six-game campaign.

The talented forward left his mark through his first full BCHL season with the Bucks in 2021-22. Dyck finished fourth in the BCHL scoring race last year with 34 goals, 41 assists for 75 points. He added another 5 points through six playoff games (4 goals, 1 assist).

Dyck’s strong season earned him First-Team All-Star and All-Rookie Team nods in the BCHL’s year-end awards, he also finished as runner-up for the Rookie of the Year award.

The 2004-born forward has also caught the eye of NHL Central Scouting, he’s ranked #110 among North American skaters who are eligible for the 2022 NHL Entry Draft.

“Our organization is thrilled for Tyson to realize his dream of playing Division 1 NCAA hockey.” Said Head Coach and GM Ryan Donald.  “Tyson has been a pleasure to have within our walls for the past two years and has shown a true passion for his teammates and the community of Cranbrook.  He brought a fierce desire to win to our dressing room, and we know that he will continue to find success in the future because of these values.”

UMASS is one of the most reputable NCAA Division 1 hockey programs in the US. Several Minutemen alumni have moved on to the NHL including Cale Makar, Jonathan Quick and Justin Braun. The Minutemen won the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Ice Hockey Championship in 2021.

The Cranbrook Bucks congratulate Dyck on this tremendous achievement.
