Minnesota recruit Taylor Cammarata has been named the Dave Tyler Junior Player of the Year, according to the United States Hockey League. The Plymouth, Minn. native played for the Waterloo Black Hawks where he tallied 38 goals and 55 assists for 93 points in 59 games played.
The five-foot-seven-inch left shot forward will play either center or left wing for Don Lucia's Gophers in the fall.
The award is named after Dave Tyler, who spent over 30 years on the Board of Directors at USA Hockey. Northeastern forward Kevin Roy, an Anaheim Ducks prospect, won the award last season. San Jose Sharks forward Joe Pavelski and 2012 Hobey Baker Award winner Jack Connolly are among past winners of the prestigious award.
