Last Team: Team Illinois U18 AAA Midget Major
Tyler comes to the Rhinos from powerhouse AAA midget program Team Illinois.
Rhino fans may be familiar with the last Team Illinois recruit, Rhinos all time wins leader and current Castleton Spartan (ECAC East) starting goaltender Artie (King) Hollinger was also a T.I. product.
Tyler will be expected to solidify the Rhinos in net as the Rhinos will not be returning a starting netminder for the first time in 3 years.
"Matt will remind alot of people of Artie, he's got good size, and plays his position with great poise, he moves the puck better than most goaltenders his age and he's a competitor.
Matt's a kid we expect to carry the mail for us this season"
