Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "The more I see Tyler play, the more I like him and how he plays a steady, physical, reliable game. A defenseman that a coach likes to have on the ice. Very competitive, finishes checks. Keeps a good gap and stands up when applicable in the neutral zone. Eliminates his man in the defensive zone. Skating is improving ... getting more confidence with the puck." (Phil Myre, ISS Scout)

• "He’s an old-school guy. Hits hard. Not much skill but I love him." (Anonymous NHL Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
