?We are adding a player with a high pedigree of success,” said Eagles Head Coach / GM Andrew Milne. “Dylan plays the game with high ability and intelligence. He was an important player for his team as they captured a league and Western Canadian Championship. His value to his team led to him being selected as a first-team all-star. Mike Glawson (Eagles Head of Scouting), had watched him closely for two seasons. When he is on the ice the puck is in his team?s possession and it moves in the right direction. On ice abilities along with exceptional academics, and winning experience are the attributes that we feel are important in Canmore. Dylan checks off all of those boxes and we are happy to add him to our club.?
