No question that Ty is a skilled player and a solid pick somewhere in the first 6 rounds of the 2012 Bantam draft.
However, these days, you don't need a father who played in the NHL, and the training facilities, organizational advantages you mention are available to many kids throughout North America and the world.
Also, BWC is a fine organization, but to suggest that is somehow superior to others would be strictly a matter of opinion. I am sure those involved at North Shore, POE, Notre Dame, the Alberta AAA bantam programs etc. etc. might have a different opinion.
Hard working players with a passion for the game make their own breaks and blaze their own trails, as I am sure is the case with Ty, and a couple hundred others who are on the board for this years draft.
Here's 21 minutes on Ty spotlighted in a game this season.
As you can see, like many of the talented smaller forwards available in this years draft, Ty works hard, has good stick skills and decent hockey sense. He also benefits from having a big horse like Adam Musil as his centerman, which does open up a little bit more ice for him.
