Avalanche select Tyson Jost with 10th Pick


The Colorado Avalanche have selected forward Tyson Jost with the 10th pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, the team announced on Friday.

Jost tallied 42 goals and 62 assists with Epenticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League. He tallied 104 points and was named the Most Valuable Player for the past season.

“We’re thrilled to be adding Tyson to our organization,” Avalanche Director of Amateur Scouting Alan Hepple said of Jost, who was also named the Canadian Junior Hockey League National Player of the Year.  “He controls the puck, has great offensive ability and makes players around him better.  He is a good passer, see’s the ice very well.  He doesn’t get intimidated, plays a big game and plays with lots of heart.  And certainly his skill level is over the top.”

The 18-year-old was the captain for Team Canada in the 2016 IIHF Under-18 World Championship. He led all players in the tournament with 15 points.
