The Okanagan Rockets are proud to announce that 1998 born forward Tyson Jost has committed to the Penticton Vees of the BCHL.
Jost set numerous club and league records for the Rockets during the 2013-2014 season. In just 36 games, Jost notched a BCMML record 44 goals and added 44 assists for 88 points. In the playoffs, Jost was equally as dominant as he recorded 9 goals and 18 points in just 7 games leading the Rockets to their 2nd ever league championship and ultimately a birth in the Telus Cup where the Rockets claimed bronze.
Jost was also the winner of the Okanagan Rockets MVP, Rookie of the Year, and Leading Scorer awards at the seasons conclusion.
Jost also joined Liam Finlay on the BCMML All-Star team.
"Tyson Jost simply had the best season in the history of the Okanagan Rockets program." said general manager David Michaud. "Arriving at the decision to join the Penticton Vees was a long process for Tyson and I'm sure he is thrilled to have it behind him and get his junior career started. As an organization, we are so excited to see what he can do with the Vees."
President, General Manager and Head Coach Fred Harbinson says the team is thrilled to have the talented forward in the fold, “We have had the opportunity to build a relationship with Tyson and his family. He has attended our camps in the past and we are excited to have the opportunity to be a part of his hockey development moving forward."
Jost will now join Liam Finlay and Brendan Barry off the current Rockets roster in Penticton for the 2014-2015 season. Jost and Finlay spent much of the past season on the same line and duo combined for 139 points. The trio will join former Rockets forward Travis Blanleil on the Vees roster.
