UConn men’s hockey earned a commitment from Ryan Tattle, a 2001 forward out of Port Moody, British Columbia. He’s expected to come to Storrs either next season or the year after, though nothing is decided at the moment.
I’m extremely proud and excited to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey at the University Of Connecticut. I want to thank my Mom & Dad, my sisters, the rest of my family, friends, coaches, teammates, and everyone else who has helped me along the way. #GoHuskies pic.twitter.com/jrZtbvW4ou— Ryan Tattle (@RyanTattle) April 25, 2021
Listed at 5-foot-10, 179 pounds with a left handed shot, Tattle plays for the Coquitlam Express in the BCHL. This season, he leads the team with 14 points (seven goals and seven assists) in 12 games and has totaled 10 goals and 18 assists in 34 games over parts of three seasons with the Express.
“It’s a dream come true. I can’t thank my mom and my dad enough, they’ve done so much for me to help me get here. Also a huge thank you to both my sisters for always being there for me,” Tattle said in a release.
British Columbia has emerged as one of UConn’s top pipelines for talent. On the Huskies’ current roster, Carter Berger, Jonny Evans, Hudson Schandor and Carter Turnbull all hail from the Pacific Northwest along with future commitments like Sean Donaldson, Brandon Santa Juana, Logan Terness and now Tattle.
