From winning the Clark Cup to being named Rookie of the Year, it's been a huge year for Dylan James
It's been a whirlwind of a year for the North Dakota commit, winning the USHL Clark Cup with the Sioux City Musketeers and being named Rookie of the Year. However, there's still more to come with the NHL Draft approaching, as Dylan James has a good shot of hearing his name selected.
CALGARY, Alberta — Growing up in Canada, it's almost as if everyone that lives there was destined to be a hockey fan. Although Dylan James wasn't born with a hockey stick in hand, he was pretty close to that.
"I'm Canadian so my parents threw me in skates at (age) 2," said James. "I'm pretty sure my mom put me in skates, but they built the backyard rink for me for probably 15 years now."
With two older brothers, it was understood that free time would be spent on the outdoor rink battling against each other, and that James, the youngest of the group would be in net taking their shots.
Memories made with his siblings playing the game were some good ones for James, but one that ranks at the top happened this year; winning the Clark Cup with the Sioux City Musketeers.
