Victoria Royals Tyler Soy

The Victoria Royals may have had their 2014-15 season cut short by the Kelowna Rockets but forward Tyler Soy gets to keep on playing.

Soy has been added to Team Canada’s National Men’s Under-18 Team roster for the 2015 IIHF U18 World Championship, taking place between April 16-26 in Zug and Lucerne, Switzerland.

Soy rejoins Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence for the third time. The 5-11, 172 lb centre won a gold medal with Team Canada Under-18’s at the 2014 Memorial of Ivan Hlinka Tournament.

Soy also helped Team Pacific capture a silver medal at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

The native of Cloverdale, BC completed his second season with the Royals in which he posted 63 points (28g-35a) over 69 games played. Named the club’s 2014-15 Coca-Cola Unsung Hero, Soy also notched two goals and five assists in 10 contests during the 2015 WHL Playoffs.

Soy was selected by the Royals with the eighth overall pick in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft.
