My first entry into the top 10 of the B2B NHL Entry Draft Preview is University of North Dakota recruit Tyson Jost. The 5’11”, 190lb center / left winger from St. Albert, Alberta, Canada has been playing for the Penticton Vees in the BCHL amassing a career stat line of 65-84-149 in 152 games. Let’s let Curtis Joe of Elite Prospects tell you more:
Tyson Jost is a crafty goal-scorer that carries out plays as quickly as he envisions them. As someone who thinks and plays at a fast tempo, it comes as no surprise that he creates a lot of energy as an offensive catalyst. He sees the ice very well and has the willingness and determination to win battles in the tough areas. All-in-all, a dynamic offensive forward with top-6 potential at the next level.
All is not quiet on the Twitter front:
Tyson Jost will likely be Boeser’s center at ND next year. Canucks trade down, take him, bring both to club together?

If Canucks trade down I expect them to take Tyson jost instead of brown. Jost is playing at ND next season 👀

@MattJacob64 Don’t disagree, but I don’t have Bellows ahead of Fabbro or McAvoy, fwiw. Now, if Tyson Jost is there @ 14 OTOH…(he won’t be)

Why should the Bruins move up to get him?
Center depth is always a good thing in the NHL. Trading with Buffalo will prove to be difficult though as there is no major incentive to slide down 6 or 21 spots unless the Bruins are willing to pay a hefty price. Jost is a good player and has the tools to be a fine NHLer some day, more likely than not in a Bruins uniform.
What do you think?
