Quinnipiac picked up another recruit, this time on Mother's Day as late 1999 born forward Tyler Ghirardosi verbally committed to the Bobcats for the 2019-2020 season. A native of Trail, British Columbia, Canada, the 6'2, 185 pound Ghirardosi was a rookie this season for the Trail Smoke Eaters in the BCHL.
In 57 regular season games, Ghirardosi had 40 points (19 goals, 21 assists) with 56 penalty minutes. 11 of the games were of the multi-point variety. He added another 8 goals and 2 assists in 12 playoff games for the Smoke Eaters including a highlight reel goal against the Penticton Vees in which he flashed strong hands and stick handling ability.
Prior to his rookie season with Trail, Ghiradosi spent the last two seasons in Junior B with the Beaver Valley NiteHawks of the KIJHL. In 73 total games over two seasons he had 69 points (32 goals, 37 assists). He had another 12 goals and 13 assists in 30 playoffs games over those two seasons.
The Trail, BC pipeline has been very favorable to the Bobcats in recent years netting star forward Travis St. Denis and current Bobcats Craig Martin and Scott Davidson. Congratulations to Tyler and his family on this great achievement and welcome to Bobcat Nation.
