Future Watch: Tyson Jost Rookie Hockey Cards, Avalanche – Tyson Jost was selected with the 10th overall pick by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. At 5′-11″, 191 pounds he doesn’t give up an inch on the ice. He already looks like a professional and after this year’s training camp he may become a full-time NHLer.
The St. Albert, Alberta native didn’t take the normal course to the draft or the NHL. He starred in the BCHL with the Penticton Vees. In his third season with them he was the captain and he had 104 points in 48 games. The year before he was a BCHL champion, so this was a good way to enter the draft. Just prior to that, while playing for Team Canada in the U18’s he had 15 points in seven games. That cemented his place as a sure-fire, top-ten selection in the draft.
Post-draft he attended the University of North Dakota. As a freshman, he had 16 goals and 35 points in 33 games. Now the question is after starring in rookie camp, will he go to the AHL or will he play more than the six games he got in Colorado last year? He got one goal last year and many think he can be a Calder Candidate if all breaks right for him.
Jost has always been the kind of talent who rises to the occasion. He’s fast, smart, physical and he has a solid two-way game. Last winter in the 2017 World Junior Championships in Montreal, Canada, he had four points in seven games against the best talent in the world at his age group. Now at 19, he seems ready to play against men at the highest level in the world.
Tyson Jost currently has NHL licensed rookie cards in 2017-18 Upper Deck MVP and 2017-18 O-Pee-Chee.
Here’s a look at his first NHL goal:
Jost is a player who should be on every collectors’ radar.
