The Florida Eels are very excited to announce the signing of 2002 veteran forward Tyler Gay from Trinity Florida to the Eels Junior program for the upcoming season. Tyler at 5’11 187 LBS shoots right. He is a veteran junior player having played for the New Jersey Hitmen Premier team last season. He is a strong skater with explosive speed and excellent skill set. GM Scarpaci says Tyler has great vision and a nose for the net. Between his high school team and juniors, he has combined totals of 40 goals and 43 assists.
We love the way he plays. He brings so many intangibles to a team. A high energy guy with passion and fortitude. He brings everything to his game. Every shift and every period. He has a high hockey IQ. He plays with unbridled determination and an unwavering commitment to win. It is that hunger and thirst that wins games. He thrives on winning loose puck battles. He is strong along the boards and throttles on zone entry.
He is a very dedicated player bent on advancing his game to the Next Level: College Hockey. He shares the Eels focus on winning a National Title. This young man has great character. We look forward to Tyler being part of the Eels family.
