Tyrell, Dana

Veteran Tyrell Eyes Return to Tampa


By Jeremy Houghtaling

At the end of training camp, Dana Tyrell was given the unfortunate news.

Despite more than 100 National Hockey League games to his credit, there was no room for Tyrell on the Tampa Bay Lightning roster. The speedy winger cleared waivers and was sent to the AHL’s Syracuse Crunch for the third time in two years.

"It definitely doesn't feel good to be put on waivers, but that's a part of the business and a part of the game," Tyrell said. "I've been through it before, so I knew what to expect this year. It's nothing I'd want to go through again."

Tyrell was on the ice for all of his team's goals and, though he wasn't credited on the statsheet, was even a factor in the home squad's second goal as he parked out front of the opposing net and provided a timely screen as teammate Clayton Stoner unleashed a blast from above the circles. Banska Bystrica (12-13-4-1, 45 PTS), which boasts NHLers Tanner Glass, Michal Handzus and Stoner in addition to Tyrell, next faces Nitra (15-8-5-2, 57 PTS), currently the second-place team in the league standings, at home on Sunday.
