"Accelerates like a race car." -Red Line Report
Tyrell is an outstanding skater with great top end speed and, more importantly, outstanding acceleration. Tyrell is a hard worker who loves to forecheck and isn't afraid to go into high traffic areas. Possesses above average playmaking abilities and a good shot. Redline Report compared him to NHLers Antoine Vermette and Chris Kunitz prior to the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
Tyrell's lack of size is his one glaring liability and there is some question if his offensive skills are good enough to translate to the NHL level.
Tyrell's speed and willingness to forecheck make him an ideal candidate to one day ascend to a scoring line with the Lightning. Tyrell might never be a featured 30-40 goal scorer in the NHL, but he could be a 20+ goal a year complimentary winger whose ability win races to loose pucks and dig in the corners makes him a key assett to his linemates.
