Chiefs All-Star Defenseman Set to Join Rams Next Fall

NEWINGTON, CT -- Jared Tyson, a defenseman for the Connecticut Chiefs, has committed to Framingham State University (FSU) for the fall of 2021.

The 2000-born native of Dublin, OH is in his second season in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), and first full campaign with the Chiefs. Tyson began the 2019-20 season with the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers and then joined the Chiefs in mid-November of 2019. The change of scenery has done wonders for Tyson, highlighted of course by this commitment for the fall of 2021.

"I’m thrilled for Jared and his family on his commitment to Framingham State," said Chiefs head coach and general manager Neil Breen. "I think Jared will quickly become an impact player for the Rams and will be a positive contributor to the student body. Jared has worked hard for this moment and the Chiefs family is behind him all the way.”

Tyson joins Ty Carter of the New Jersey 87's as the first two EHL players to commit to join the Rams so far this season. Overall, Tyson is the 26th FSU commit in league history. The veteran defenseman is glad his journey took him to Connecticut, as ultimately it led to this moment.

"This was my main focus coming into this year for me," said Tyson. "It’s an exciting time for me and I can’t thank my coaches, staff, and teammates enough. I’m going to spend the rest of this season helping my team pave its way to the EHL Frozen Finals in Providence and prepare for next year.”
