No matter what his role is, Dana Tyrell's work ethic remains the same.
After playing in the shadows of Devin Setoguchi, Eric Hunter, and Jared Walker last season, Tyrell has broke out in a big way this season with the Prince George Cougars.
"Even if things aren't going for Dana offensively, his work ethic is always the strongest on the ice. He is avery humble young man who plays the same way if he's the main guy or not," said Cougars head coach Drew Schoneck.
"Last year, he wanted to be 'the man', but he had a strong supporting cast of players. This year, he has taken that extra pressure and really been a force for our team in so many ways."
