Defenseman Tyler Heidt Commits to Merrimack


The Merrimack men’s hockey program has picked up a commitment from ’98-born defenseman Tyler Heidt, who played last season for the Melfort Mustangs in the SJHL.

Heidt, 19, was committed to Alaska Anchorage until the program had a coaching change in the spring. He’ll join the Merrimack roster for this upcoming season.

Heidt was limited to nine games last season after suffering a shoulder injury in training camp, but totaled nine points (1 goal, 8 assists) from the blue line.

In 2016-17, Heid was named SJHL All-Rookie after finishing with 21 points (7 goals, 14 assists) in 54 games.

In training camp last summer, Heidt suffered a torn labrum.

“I was in such good shape and wanted to have a great season for Melfort,” Heidt told northeastNOW. “It was actually more emotionally tough than it was physically, trying to stay positive was the toughest part.”
