For the NA3HL group, they have had a lot of stars playing well this year. Undefeated teams need that level of depth and skill to play well.
One of their key contributors is Tyler Ramm.The forward has taken a step forward at the NA3HL level and has played well enough to earn a tender from the NAHL group for next season. The NA3HL Generals sit at 13-0 in mid November and Ramm has been a huge factor. Tyler has amassed 5 goals and 4 assists for 9 points in his 12 games played. And most recently he scored the game winning goal in a shoot out vs. the Long Beach Sharks to help the Generals remain perfect.
NAHL Head Coach Bryan Erikson had this to say “Tyler is an amazing young man. He came close to making the NA team this year but he has some holes in his game we wanted to fix first. And he trusted the process and we knew there was nobody better than Darryl Locke to help him improve. And Tyler has done that. He has lengthened his stride, gotten faster, he has become more physical and has become a trusted center than can lock an opponent down for 200 feet. He is very deserving of this tender and we look forward to seeing his progress and can’t wait for him to get to the NA Generals.
His Head Coach Daryl Locke said of Ramm’s superb play and of what earned him the tender “ I think the main thing for Tyler was getting him back to being the dominant power forward he was at the U16 level a couple of years ago. He dominated in all aspects of the game at that age group. He had long powerful strides, played physical, and had an absolute cannon of a shot. Last year I don’t think was a down year for him at the U18 level ,but he wasn’t as dominant as he wanted to be. Sometimes a player needs time to adjust to playing against older players. Some players adjust quickly on the fly and others take some time. Going into The NAHL Camp I thought he was starting to show flashes of dominance again but just not consistently enough to push himself into a roster spot. Coach Erikson wanted him to come down to the NA3 Team to work on his physical play, and rediscover his powerful skating stride. The last 3 or 4 games he’s been as dominant as I’ve ever seen him. He’s using his size and strength to his advantage and he’s cashing in on his offensive opportunities. Really proud of the way he’s handled himself and gone about his business everyday at the rink. He’s a great kid and extremely coachable. In my opinion it won’t be long before there’s a bidding war for his services at both collegiate levels.”
