Fresh off winning a gold medal with Team Canada at the Ivan Hlinka Tournament, Penticton Vees(BCHL) forward and potential first round 2016 NHL Draft pick Tyson Jost announced that he has committed to North Dakota
Jost is a smaller forward, listed at 5-11 190 lbs., but is incredibly skilled with the puck. He put up 45 points in 46 games last season with the Vees as a 15/16-year-old.
Just about every major program was interested in Jost, though he ultimately narrowed his final choice down to North Dakota and Denver. Jost is the first commitment for new North Dakota head coach Brad Berry and is a significant one. Jost's CHL rights are held by the Everett Silvertips.
