    I realize the huge size advantage other players have on him.

    But I would like to get more info on him

    HockeyDB has him listed at 5'8" 156lbs which is very small

    However, last year in USHL with Des Moines he scored 72 points (17G - 55A) and currently has 29 points in 22 games at Notre Dame this year which is fairly good.

    Other then size does anyone have any other reason why this guy would not have gotten drafted?

    Any other info would be gladly appreciated. Thanks

    Considering he's listed at 5'8 156, which means he's probably even smaller, I'm not sure he needs to have another major flaw. He's miniscule.

    I got to see Tynan quite a bit last season playing for the DM Bucs. He is VERY skilled but yes, also very small. I'd say the 5'8" measurement is about right. He's doing VERY will in the NCAA, especially for a freshman and especially at his size. I was hoping that a team would take a chance on him with a 6th or 7th rd pick this past summer but his size is a legit concern. I wouldn't be surprised if a team takes a chance on him with a later round pick this summer though. He has a big size disadvantage to overcome but if he can bulk up considerably over the next 3-4 years of college hockey and perhaps grow an inch or two, he definitely has the skill be play in the NHL.

    As a side note, I played on an indoor roller hockey team this past summer and a friend of mine (who works for the Bucs) brought in a friend to join the team for a few games...the ringer was Tynan. :laugh:

    Born February 25, 1992, went unselected in the 2010 draft. Played with Conner Brickley last year with Des Moines in the USHL. He's having a monster rookie season in the CCHA with Notre Dame. 33 points in 24 games (15 goals, leads team in scoring by a good margin).

    He's tiny at 5'9 and 170 pounds.

    What can you tell me about him and do you expect him to be taken in 2011?

    Hasnt there been like 3 threads for him this year alone?
    I thought he was closer to 5'7 than 5'9. Way too small, to be drafted high, especially as 19y/o.
    Ill guess some team will take him in 5-6 rounds, you cant ignore the production, even if all he ever ends up being is good AHL depth. Wonder who goes first, Tynan or Rocco?

    There was a thread about him within the past day or two. People need to learn to use the search function before making threads.

    And I believe he's listed at 5'8, not like that means anything though. He could be anywhere from 5'6 to 5'8.
