The Yorkton Terriers are pleased to announce that 20 year-old defenseman Tyson Janzen has committed to play for the  Red Deer Polytechnic Kings, who play in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) for the 2022-23 season. He will join teammate Tanner Sklaruk, who also committed this past week to Red Deer Polytechnic.

Tyson is from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and is a 4th year veteran defenceman with the Terriers.

Tyson has been an impact defenseman for the Terriers since signing with the junior club as a 17 year old, while also being a tremendous leader on and off the ice. Tyson is having a career year in his 20 year old season, putting up 31 points in 54 games, while also serving as an assistant captain.

He finishes off a very successful career with 61 points in 158 games played with the Terriers.

On behalf of the Terriers organization, we would like to congratulate Tyson and his family on this accomplishment and wish him continued success both academically and athletically while attending Red Deer Polytechnic.
