Forward: Tyler Broad, P.A.L. Jr. Islanders
Broad (‘03/West Seneca, N.Y.) continues to make history for P.A.L., but anything individual has only come on the heels of making history by helping the team win their first Dineen Cup last spring. Currently the NCDC’s leading scorer with a line of six goals and a league-leading 18 assists for 24 points. A strong two-way player, he was also a +16 and threw his weight around to the tune of 22 hits over his 14 games.
