Warriors player commits as team announces plans for the 2nd Annual Alumni Tournament

The West Kelowna Warriors have announced another player commitment as former assistant captain Tyson Dallman has found a place to play next season.

Dallman, 20, has committed to Brock University in St. Catharine’s, Ontario and will begin playing for the Brock Badgers at the start of the 2014-15 season.

“One of their scouts talked to me near the end of this season,” said Dallman, “then their head coach met me at home in Prince Albert after the season. I did have other options and took some time but I felt in the end Brock was the best for me.”

Dallman played just one season for the Warriors after playing two years with the Tri-City Americans of the WHL.

He tallied 22 goals, and 20 assists in 53 games for the Warriors, and added two assists in six playoff games.

Dallman said he’ll play the same role he had here with the Warriors.

“I’ll be used as a top-six utility forward who can play in all situations, and do whatever is asked of me,” he said. “I’m definitely excited to get out there, and start the semester and hockey season I’ve heard it’s a beautiful part of the country so I’m eager to get out there and see it for myself.”

Dallman is the eighth Warriors player off the 2013-14 roster to secure a scholarship for the 2014-15 season.  Over 50 Warriors players have advanced to further education through hockey.
