Tyler Tracy Player Profile October 24, 2012 8:03 AM

Tyler Tracy has been a dominating force between the pipes for more than a few seasons now. The 1994 DOB Goaltender with the EJHL’s Portland Jr. Pirates has won at every level on and off the ice.

South Florida is producing some very high level hockey talent these days. NHL draft picks are coming from what used to be considered "non traditional" hockey markets. If the NHL has done one thing right it has been to reach out and develop youth hockey in states like Florida and California. Tyler Tracy is a product of that outreach and exposure to the game.

Tyler began playing as a defenseman, and only took a chance in net because a team mate was sick roughly ten years ago. Sometimes necessity can be a life changing experience. Tyler Tracy is definitely a name being mentioned by USHL and NCAA scouts, and it all started because a team mate had the flu.

As a Pee Wee, Tyler made his mark early. Leading the Florida Jr. Everblades to a record breaking 55-0 undefeated season. That kind of season does not happen by accident and has not been matched since.

In 2009-2010, Tyler once again made his mark backstopping Team Illinois to a state Championship.

Named goaltender of the year for the 2010-2011 Metro Junior Hockey League, Tracy didnt sit back and relax, but continued to work hard. Known to be a hard worker in the gym, Tyler has also won several individual ironman competitions.

A continuous Honor Roll student, Tracy puts as much time into his off ice work as he does into his on ice work. A former winner of the Presidents Education Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement, Tyler believes that his education is just as important as his athletics. Community involvement is also important to Tyler, he is known to donate many hours of community service in his home state of Florida and while playing in Maine.

When looking for an athlete to promote to NCAa programs, it is just as important to look at the person. Tyler Tracy is technically sound, with good reflexes, and a work ethic that few can match on or off the ice. Tracy will continue to refine his game in Portland this season while looking for his NCAA opportunity. The combination of skill, academics and citizenship will make Tyler Tracy an asset to any organization.
