Tyler Wall Signs NHL Entry Level Contract
Submitted By Administrator on Friday, May 8, 2020
Southpoint Minor Hockey congratulates former SMHA goaltender Tyler Wall, on signing an NHL entry level contract with the New York Rangers!  

Tyler participated in Southpoint Minor Hockey from Mites through Minor Bantam and was the backbone of Southpoint’s 1998 age group. 

Tyler accomplished much during his time in Southpoint, the 2009-10 season saw Tyler backstop the Peewee Major ‘A’ team to an International Silverstick Championship in Port Huron, Michigan. He made many crucial saves in the tournament, including several in the dying moments of the Final against the Santa Clara Blackhawks to secure a 5-4 victory. He was named the Most Valuable Goaltender in the Peewee division, despite being a year younger than the other goalies in the division.

The 2010-11 season saw Tyler further progress as an elite goaltender, this time helping lead a scrappy group of Peewee Majors to the OMHA Finals. During this playdown run, Southpoint staved off elimination a number of times, and this never say die attitude was clearly evident in the crease.

Tyler’s last season in Southpoint came in 2011-12. This time Tyler helped the Minor Bantam’s win the International Silverstick & again led the team to another OMHA Finals appearance against Quinte West Hawks.

Tyler moved on to Sun County & Windsor AAA programs for the 2012 -2015 seasons, where he was drafted by the Soo Greyhounds in the 7th round the 2014 OHL Priority draft.

The 2015-16 saw Tyler play for our very own Leamington Flyers where he contributed immensely to the Flyers regular season first place finish, accumulating a 27 - 2 -1 record with a league best 1.49 GAA and .940 SV%. That June, Tyler was selected in the 174th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.  

Tyler then advanced to NCAA Division 1 hockey, playing four years at UMass Lowell for the River Hawks. His collegiate career includes posting a 58-34-10 record, along with a 2.28 GAA, a .918 SV %, and nine shutouts. Wall’s 58 career wins at UMass Lowell are the most by a goaltender in the school’s D1 era, which broke Dwayne Roloson’s record of 51. Wall also helped the River Hawks win the Hockey East Championship in 2016-17.

Well done Tyler, Southpoint Minor Hockey, the communities of Wheatley & Leamington, and all your former teammates & coaches are very proud of your accomplishments, and wish you continued success in your professional career.
