For the NA3HL group, they have had a lot of stars playing well this year. Undefeated teams need that level of depth and skill to play well.
One of their key contributors is Tyler Ramm.The forward has taken a step forward at the NA3HL level and has played well enough to earn a tender from the NAHL group for next season.
His Head Coach Daryl Locke said of Ramm’s superb play and of what earned him the tender “ I think the main thing for Tyler was getting him back to being the dominant power forward he was at the U16 level a couple of years ago. He dominated in all aspects of the game at that age group. He had long powerful strides, played physical, and had an absolute cannon of a shot. Last year I don’t think was a down year for him at the U18 level ,but he wasn’t as dominant as he wanted to be. Sometimes a player needs time to adjust to playing against older players. Some players adjust quickly on the fly and others take some time. Going into The NAHL Camp I thought he was starting to show flashes of dominance again but just not consistently enough to push himself into a roster spot. Coach Erikson wanted him to come down to the NA3 Team to work on his physical play, and rediscover his powerful skating stride. The last 3 or 4 games he’s been as dominant as I’ve ever seen him. He’s using his size and strength to his advantage and he’s cashing in on his offensive opportunities. Really proud of the way he’s handled himself and gone about his business everyday at the rink. He’s a great kid and extremely coachable. In my opinion it won’t be long before there’s a bidding war for his services at both collegiate levels.”
