Cents Goaltender Tyler Steel Commits to Brown University

Press Release

The Merritt Centennials are excited to announce the commitment of 19-year-old goaltender Tyler Steel to Brown University for the 2013-14 season.

Steel is in his third BCHL season with the Centennials after establishing career bests in 2011-12 with a 15-11-1-0 record, 2.60 goals-against-average, .916 save percentage and three shutouts in 29 games.

As a rookie in 2010-11, the Vernon native had a 7-16-0-0 record with a 3.48 goals-against-average, .889 save percentage and one shutout in 30 games.

“Tyler has been very patient in his development here over the past two seasons and his dedication is starting to pay off," said Cents GM and Head Coach Luke Pierce. "He was very thorough in his decision making process with regards to his future and I think his choice to commit to Brown University is a great one as he'll have an opportunity to help in the growth of that program while receiving a first class education."

Pierce added, "We look forward to helping prepare Tyler for the next step and know that in the meantime he is prepared to continue providing us with elite goaltending on a nightly basis.”
