NAPHL, POE alum Jost signs with NHL's Avalanche

March 30, 2017

Tyson Jost played in the NAPHL in 2011-12 and 2012-13 for Pursuit of Excellence.

The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club of the NHL announced that the team has signed forward Tyson Jost to a three-year, entry-level contract. Jost is scheduled to join the Avalanche for the remainder of the 2016-17 season.
 
Jost is an NAPHL alumni, having played for Pursuit of Excellence in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 season. In 2011-12, Jost played for the Pursuit of Excellence Bantam 14U team and had 17 points in five games played. In 2012-13, he played for the Pursuit of Excellence 16U team and had five points (all goals) in 6 games played.
 
Jost, 19, was Colorado's first-round selection (10th overall) in the 2016 NHL Draft. He recently completed his freshman season at the University of North Dakota, tallying 35 points (16g/19a) in 33 games. Jost finished second on the team in points, goals (tied) and assists, and shared the club lead with five power-play goals. His 35 points currently rank second among all NCHC freshmen.
 
"We are excited to announce that Tyson has signed his entry-level contract and will be joining us for the rest of this season," said Avalanche Executive Vice President/General Manager Joe Sakic. "Tyson is an all-around player. He competes, plays the game hard and is reliable at both ends of the ice. He just finished a strong year at North Dakota and we're looking forward to seeing him in an Avalanche sweater."
 
A native of St. Albert, Alberta, Jost helped Team Canada to a silver medal at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship in Montreal/Toronto this past January. The 5-foot-11, 191-pound center tallied four points (1g/3a) in seven games during the tournament.
 
Jost captained Team Canada at the 2016 IIHF Under-18 World Championship in Grand Forks, North Dakota, where he led the entire tournament in scoring with 15 points (6g/9a) in seven games. His 15 points established a Canadian record at that event, surpassing the previous mark set by Connor McDavid (14) in 2013. Jost was selected as the tournament's "Best Forward" and was named to the All-Star Team.
