Trombly to return next season with Eagles

Junior A Hockey

Greeley, Colo. — Forward Tyler Trombly, the son of a former Dickinson Amateur Hockey Association player, will return to the Northern Colorado Eagles for the 2019-2020 season.

Trombly, who hails from Huntsville, Alabama, is coming off of his first season in the Western States Hockey League. He registered 15 goals and 18 assists in 45 games to place him fourth on the team in goals during the 2018-2019 campaign.

“I’m thrilled and grateful to be back with the team for my last seasons of juniors,” Trombly said. “I can’t wait to get the season started.”

Entering his third season of junior hockey, Trombly (5-foot-8, 160) has recorded 32 goals and 43 assists for 75 points in 91 games.

“Tyler really grew and developed other parts of his game this year,” said Steve Haddon, Bears head coach and general manager. “Tyler worked on all of the little parts of the game that are so vital, like blocking a shot or taking a big hit to make a play in the defensive zone. Improving all of those skills isn’t easy but by the end of the season, he became the complete player we saw down the stretch and into the playoffs.

“I am extremely excited to work with Tyler again and he will be depended on to play a huge role for us this season,”

Trombly’s father, Jason, played in the Iron Mountain-based DAHA for eight years. Tyler is the grandson of Dale and Cheryl Trombly.

The past six seasons in the Western States Hockey League, the Northern Colorado Eagles have made huge strides as a Junior ‘A’ franchise. The Eagles finished third in the Mountain Division in their first two seasons
