Tauros 20 Questions: Tyler Jeanson

Sep 10, 2016

Minot, ND – As the 2016/17 NAHL season draws near we are giving Tauros fans a chance to meet all of the new members of the club as well as learn a little more about the returning Tauros.  We will play 20 questions with a different Tauro every day from now until the NAHL Showcase going in number order, today we catch up with veteran forward #22 Tyler Jeanson.

Jeanson posted 31 points on 10 goals and 21 assists while playing in all 60 games for the Tauros as a rookie last season.  He added a pair of assists in the playoffs as well maintaining his half-a-point per game pace from the regular season.  Already committed to NCAA DI Colgate for next season look for Jeanson to take a leap in his final junior season.  Jeanson will be a key on special teams as well for the Tauros as no returning player had more than his 10 power play points last year.

From the Coaches’ Office: This is a big year for Tyler as he is slated to join Colgate next season.  We expect him to put together a good year and become a guy we can lean on night in, night out.  After being here last year, he understands the league and we want him to be a premier player in the Central division this season.  He came into camp in great shape and has been a leader both on and off the ice. – Marty Murray
