History

J.T. Wyman was the third player from Blake School named a Mr. Hockey finalist and finished as the leading scorer for the Bears with 54 points. The right winger was a tremendous offensive player for his team last year, scoring goals in 21 of 24 games.

2006-07: This was Wyman’s third season with Dartmouth (ECAC), which saw the winger set career-highs in goals (13), assists (11) and points (24) while appearing in all of the clubs 33 games. His four game-winning goals was a team best.

2007-08: The Minnesota winger finished up at Dartmouth College (ECAC) this season, setting career-highs in goals (15), assists (15) and points (30). The Big Green’s assistant captain finished his collegiate career with 41 goals and 85 points in 123 appearances.

2008-09: The majority of Wyman’s season was spent with the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL), which saw the winger net six goals and 11 points in 52 games. He also saw time with Cincinnati (ECHL), where he registered eight helpers in 15 games. He stayed out of penalty trouble this season, as he is wont to do: 12 minutes in the box. Expect to see him with Hamilton next season.

2009-10: Wyman entered the season with Hamilton as a sophomore playing on a good team. In his 76 games, J.T. would add 17 goals and 20 assists. He was fortunate to get a 3 game stint with the Canadiens, but was unable to register a point.

Talent Analysis

A league coach had this to say about Wyman: “Wyman has the ability to single handedly change the game in one shift. He is very explosive and is a pure goal scorer. He has a tremendous first three strides, has nice hands, and a quick release. He will have to develop his play in the last 100 feet to make himself a more complete player.”

 

Future

Wyman signed a one-year contract with the Colorado Avalanche in July of 2013.
