St. Cloud, MN – The Fargo Force of the United States Hockey League continues to be a productive pipeline for SCSU players with Calgary forward Tyson Gross announcing his commitment to the Huskies.

The 6’3″ 180-pound left-shooting forward announced via Twitter on October 17th “I’m extremely excited to announce my commitment to play Hockey at St. Cloud State University. I would like to thank my friends, teammates, coaches, and most importantly my family for helping this dream come true!”

Gross is in his first season with the Force posting 1 goal and 2 assists for three points in 5 games. In the COVID shortened 2020-21 season, he appeared in 9 games for the Drumheller Dragons of the Alberta Junior Hockey league posting  2 goals and 4 assists for 6 points. The 19-year-old split time between Drumheller and the well-known Calgary Junior Flames AAA program in 2019-20 where he lit things up with 41 points in 27 games.

Neutral Zone, a prominent amateur scouting service describes Gross as a taller, lankier center with a long, smooth stride. He has a long reach and a quick, active stick and uses his big frame effectively finishing his check and shielding the puck. He is sneaky and creative off the draw and does a good job cutting off lanes and breaking up passes. He possesses a quick shot with good accuracy.

Most likely, Gross will hit the ice in St. Cloud in 2023.
