“This young man played ‘A’ hockey throughout minor hockey,” said Milton Head Coach/GM Dan Del Monte. “He’s mastered the hardest thing to teach kids these days: Relentless hard work and never-quit.”

Turpin played two seasons for the Heartland Dragons U18 A team before signing with the Menace in 2019.

The defenceman from Mississauga scored a goal and added 13 assists in 61 games over two seasons in Milton.

“Tyler is proof that with hard work and heart(land Dragons) you can achieve anything you set your mind to,” said Milton Assistant coach Tyler Pracek. “He has pushed himself so hard over the past few years not only to move up to this level of hockey but now he earned an opportunity at the next level.

“Tyler was given a lot of responsibility this season on the ice and was a huge part of the success our team had. I couldn’t be more proud of him both as a player and the individual he has become.”

Congratulations to Tyler and best of luck in the NCAA!

The OJHL, the largest Jr. A hockey league in Canada, has had more than 120 NCAA, U SPORTS, CHL and professional commitments in 2019-20 – including more than 45 NCAA Division I scholarships.
