Centre Ice welcomes our new goalie coach, Ty Garner!
Ty grew playing minor hockey AAA for both Stoney Creek and Hamilton and was further drafted to the Oshawa Generals of the OHL. While in Oshawa Ty won the OHL championship giving him the opportunity to play in the Memorial Cup.
Ty was later drafted to the New York Islanders of the NHL (83rd pick, 1996) and was subsequently traded to the Calgary Flames where he would see his first NHL action.
Ty also spent time with the Atlanta Thrashers and Florida Panthers organizations. Over his 11 year professional hockey career Ty also spent time in the AHL and ECHL where he won a Kelly Cup Championship (ECHL) and was named most valuable player of the playoffs.
Ty's professional career also took him overseas where he had the opportunity to play in both the German and Norwegian elite leagues where he was named goalie of the year in Germany and won another championship in Norway.
Ty retired from the goalie position after he sustained an injury but still pursued his passion for hockey playing as a power forward for two years in the SPHL in Jacksonville Florida.
Since his retirement Ty was the goalie coach for the Stoney Creek Warriors AA major atom team and the Hamilton Jr Bulldogs AAA major peewee team.
Ty has recently signed on as the goalie coach for the entire Hamilton Jr Bulldogs hockey program and is a goalie scout for the Hamilton Bulldogs of the OHL.
Ty has always believed in the power of positive thinking. He fully believes, the difference between those who move on to a higher level and those who do not is based on their mental approach. He doesn't want to change the way goalies play the game, he wants to enhance the way they play the game both technically and mentally.
Ty is looking forward to sharing his past experiences and passing on his knowledge not only in the goalie position but for the entire game of hockey.
Ty is offering one hour private lessons for goalies to reach their full potential.
