“Ty is a player who we have had on our radar for quite some time. What really did it was how impressed our admissions and administration were with Ty and his family when he travelled to Ashland. He will bring a lot to our small college on and off the ice. He is a seasoned player, who makes plays and will excel at this level. He also believes in where we are going as a program and we also believe in his abilities and what he can bring to our core and our close knit community here in Northern Wisconsin. We are no way there yet, it’s the best league in the country and Ty will bring us that much closer to the next level of competition.” – Seamus Gergory, Head Coach, Northland College Lumberjacks.
