Tyson Feist inks one year deal with AHL’s Syracuse Crunch
Kelowna Rockets captain Tyson Feist has signed a one-year AHL contract with the Syracuse Crunch, the club announced today.
He signed an amateur tryout with the Crunch at the end of the Rockets season on May 8th, joining the Crunch for the remainder of their season – he did not dress in any games.
This season the defenceman set career bests, posting 39 points (15G, 24A), 78 penalty minutes and a +25 plus/minus rating over 65 games.
Feist, 21, appeared in 187 WHL regular-season games over four seasons between the Spokane Chiefs, Regina Pats and Rockets, posting 72 points (19G, 53A) and 206 penalty minutes.
The Dawson Creek, B.C. product was acquired from the Pats in January 2020. He was named the Rockets 26th captain in franchise history prior to the start of the 2021-22 season.
