April 12, 2018
The Texas Brahmas of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that goaltender Tyler Myers has committed to Buffalo State University for the 2018-19 season.
Over the span of three NA3HL seasons, the 20-year-old goaltender amassed an overall record of 61-19-4, including 19 shutouts, a sub 2.00 goals against average and a .923 save percentage.
Myers helped the Brahmas reach the Fraser Cup Quarterfinals (once the Silver Cup) twice and he will leave Texas as the franchise wins leader in the junior level.
"Tyler was a huge part of why we had one of the top defenses in the league," Head Coach Michael Hill said. "He was an all around team guy, on and off the ice. This past year he was a great leader. He pushed the pace in practice and made our team better by his efforts."
The 2017 NA3HL South Division Goaltender of the Year, accompanied by Carson Murison, led one of the best goaltending tandems in the league this season. Tier 3 Junior Hockey dot com listed Myers as the top performer in the state of Colorado and rightfully so.
He was also selected to and played in the 2017 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament for the Silver team.
"Not only were his efforts shown around the rink, but also in the community. He went above and beyond on all player appearances and even helped out with the rest of the team with Habitat for Humanity’s ‘Cowtown Brush Up’ in Fort Worth. He’s going to have good success in Buffalo State. We are extremely proud of him," Hill added.
Myers becomes the first Brahma from this year's roster to commit to an NCAA program.
