Tyler Bassingthwaite not only has a long name but had a long season in D2. Tyler stepped in to play goal in a division that is really fast and he struggled at first but with hard work and a never quit attitude he found himself in the finals. Tyler is a gritty player with a heart that never stops. He loves the game of hockey and I know he loves Canada because he has it tattoed to his heart (literally). What makes Tyler so special is his scheer determination and his never say die attitude. I know at times he was ready to hang up the goalie pads because he knew he was in a division that was not holding back on scoring but he stuck it out. In a tremendous overtime semifinal he found himself celebrating his teams only win of the season. They did go on to finish second overall but I think they finished with a better attitude then they thought they would. It just goes to show that with a never say die attitude anything can be accomplished.
Way to go Tyler B!
