After two solid seasons with the Parkland Rangers program, Tyler Jubenvill began his junior hockey career with the Winkler Flyers in the 2015-2016 season where that success continued. In 134 total games with Winkler, Tyler added up 72 points (19G).
Growing up in Gilbert Plains, Tyler always had the dream of playing college hockey with the best of the best. After a solid season with the Cedar Rapids Roughriders of the United States Hockey League, Jubenvill achieved that dream, one that he thought about for so many years.
He began his college career with the Bemidji State University Division 1 men's hockey team last season. Now, Tyler has completed his second full season of college hockey. He played in 27 games this year after 28 last year.
"It was a good season, we were one of the top teams in our conference and the entire nation as well," said Jubenvill. "It was a pretty good year, but it sucked how it ended with COVID-19. Of course, safety is the most important thing, but that doesn't mean I'm not disappointed."
A member of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, the team compiled a 22-10-5 overall record, good for second in the conference. Nationwide, the team finished the season as the 11th best among Division 1 hockey teams. They finished the season with five straight weeks of being inside the top 15.
The team went 20-5-3-2 against WCHA competition. In their quarterfinal series, they beat Lake Superior State University to advance before the season was cut short because of the outbreak.
"It was a lot of fun being on such a good team, everyone was best friends in the dressing room," continued Jubenvill. "It was a ton of fun going to the rink every day and of course; it helps when you're winning consistently."
With the off-season now here, Jubenvill will prepare for next season. Next year's roster should be another contender as the team has only lost three seniors. With a solid freshmen class set to join the team, Jubenvill is excited for more of the same, winning hockey games.
"I think we're all feeling pretty good. I think with the ending this year, everyone is pretty motivated going into next year with the thought process of finishing things off," he concluded.
Jubenvill also recorded two points this season.
