2010-11: Tyler Ganly appeared in two junior A games for the Toronto Junior Canadiens and played for the Junior Canadiens minor midget AAA team. He had 1 assist in two junior games. Ganly scored 18 goals with 14 assists in 18 midget AAA games and had 22 penalty minutes. In six games at the OHL Cup he scored 1 goal with 2 assists and had 2 penalty minutes. Ganly participated in the 2011 U17 Provincial Camp in Thunder Bay. He was selected by Sault Ste. Marie in the fifth round (87th overall) of the 2011 OHL Priority Draft.
2011-12: Ganly played seven junior A games with the Brampton Capitals and was an assistant captain for the Toronto Junior Canadiens midget AAA team. He had 1 assist in seven games for the Capitals. Ganley represented the Junior Canadiens in the GTHL All-Star game in January.
2012-13: Ganly was pressed into action earlier than expected in his first OHL season due to the absence of Greyhound veterans Ryan Sproul and Colin Miller and proved up to the task. Overshadowed by those two and 2013 NHL first round pick Darnell Nurse on the Sault Ste. Marie blueline, Ganly had 17 assists in 62 games and was +2 with 64 penalty minutes. The Greyhounds reached the OHL playoffs for the first time in three years, finishing second in the West Division. Ganly played in all six games against Owen Sound and was -3 with no points nor penalty minutes. Ranked 166th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings, he was selected by Carolina in the sixth round (156th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.
Ganly is a purely defensive defenseman with little to no offensive ability. He needs major work concerning his skating and positioning. Though he can serve as a hard checking defenseman and a fighter, he will need to be the absolute best on his team in order to impress coaches and scouts.
Ganly has plenty of Major Juniors eligibility left and will likely need all of it to polish his game.
