TJ Tynan

I notice that this 92-born guy seems to be excelling in the USHL, along with other 2010-eligible players Jaden Schwartz and Sahir Gill. Some stats:

Height: 5-9
Weight: 170
Team: Des Moines Buccaneers (USHL) (3rd worst team in league)
Committed to: Notre Dame
Games: 22
Goals: 9
Assists: 26
Points: 35
+/-: -3

Tied for second in league scoring (with one more game played)

Can anyone whos seen him play give comments on his skating, shooting, hockey sense, defensive play etc?

A little over a third of the way into the season, hes outpacing four recent first-round forwards drafted from the USHL:

Louis Leblanc 60gp 28g 31a 59pts

Max Pacioretty 60gp 21g 42a 63 pts

Patrick White 12gp 8g 1a 9pts (split year between high school team and USHL)

Kyle Okposo 50gp 27g 31a 58 pts

Size is an obvious issue with him. Looking at his picture on the USHL website, he looks about 14. I wonder if maybe hes a late bloomer who could grow more than normal during his college years.

Thanks in advance

I'd considered that, but I wanted info from people who'd actually seen him play, and I figured that if anyone did watch USHL games, they'd probably take a look at this part of the boards. I was afraid that if I put this in the prospects section, a bunch of people who'd never heard of him, much less seen him, would jump on the thread and it would go something like this:

Poster 1: He's too small! No player under 6'4, 220 can survive in the NHL.

Poster 2 (who's a fan of a team with a skilled but small prospect): Screw you! (insert name of small prospect who hasn't played an NHL game) isn't too small!

Poster 1: Shut up Homer.

Poster 3(Leafs Hater, who never heard of Tynan): This kid is better than Kadri.

Poster 4(Leafs fan): ***** you! Kadri >> Tynan >>>>>>>>>Hodgeson.

Poster 5: Hall will be better than Tavares. Book it.

Poster 6: Hall is Aki Berg compared to Tavares.

And so on.......

I'm sure we'll learn more about him as the draft approaches, though I may post a request for Tynan info in the prospects forum eventually.

[B]T.J. Tynan – C – Des Moines Buccaneers
Small center who is right near the top of USHL scoring race, is committed to Notre Dame, and having a great start to his junior career. Displays wonderful on-ice vision and playmaking skills, along with a solid wrist shot makes up for lack of size with a ton of skill.[/B

It's doubtful. He probably won't be drafted. I would guess he signs an NHL deal after next season or his junior year. It just doesn't happen very often where second year players are drafted out of college. Teams would rather just try and sign the guy, especially because of his size.

this seems kind of true, but I would look no further then Chase Balisy who was bypassed this past draft, tore it up for Western Michigan, and now looks like a top 4 round lock....not saying Tynan will get drafted as he might go the way of a Carter Camper, but it is still possible especially with that freshman season.

He had a great season at ND. Size is definitely a factor for him making the jump to the NHL game, but of course it can be done.

I was actually surprised he was picked in the 3rd. I figured somebody might have taken a chance in the 5th-7th rounds
