Another member of the 2013-2014 West Kelowna Warriors has secured a scholarship for next season.
Assistant captain Tyson Dallman has committed to Brock University in St. Catharine’s, Ontario.
Dallman will begin playing for the Brock Badgers, and begin his studies, at the start of the 2014-15 season.
“One of their scouts talked to me near the end of this season,” says Dallman.
“Then their head coach Murray Nystrom met me at home in Prince Albert after the season. I did have other options, and took some time, but I felt in the end Brock was the best for me.”
Dallman played just one season for the Warriors after playing two years with the Tri-City Americans of the WHL.
He tallied 22 goals, and 20 assists in 53 games for the Warriors, and added 2 assists in 6 playoff games.
Dallman said he’ll play the same role he had here with the Warriors.
“I’ll be used as a top-six utility forward who can play in all situations, and do whatever is asked of me.
I’m definitely excited to get out there, and start the semester and hockey season. I’ve heard it’s a beautiful part of the country, so I’m eager to get out there and see it for myself.”
Dallman is the eighth Warriors player off the 2013-14 roster to secure a scholarship for the 2014-15 season.
More than 50 Warriors players have advanced to further education through hockey.
The entire Warriors organization wants to congratulate Tyson for all his efforts on and off the ice, and wish him nothing but success in the future.
