The Winkler Flyers are proud to announce another commitment of goaltender Dylan Meilun to the University of Wisconsin Superior(NCAA Div III).
Dylan played all 3 of his junior hockey years for the Flyers. A Morden Manitoba native who played 58 total games for the Orange and Black. In those 58 games he posted a goals against average of 3.35 and a save percentage of .890. In his 20 year old year Dylan showed incredible leadership, as well as being involved in the community.
Dylan explained why he ended up choosing Wisconsin Superior “Obviously they’re an amazing hockey program, they compete at an elite level and hold themselves to a high standard. But on the other side of it they are a great school and I get the opportunity to go and further my education. After talking lots with the coaching staff and being out there for a visit it’s obvious that I’m going to be a good fit there.”
“The Flyers organization has been great to me right from the start they welcomed me in and became my home. I learnt a lot from the 20’s in my rookie year, and went through a lot with this team during the pandemic, but now that junior hockey is done for me, I’ve got a second family with my brothers that were in that room. I was lucky enough to play my entire junior career in Winkler. I developed my game over my three years spent here and am ready to take the next step into college hockey.” Dylan noted how important junior hockey and the Winkler Flyers were in helping him make the next step in his hockey career.
Flyers GM and Head Coach Justin Falk is thrilled for Dylan “”Dylan has worked tremendously hard over the last 12 months to earn this next opportunity. Dylan raised the standard within the organization with his professional approach to each day. Being first to the rink regularly and the detail in his routine helped translate to his performance and success on the ice. Dylan was also a leader in our locker room and community as he was heavily involved with Gateway Resources in particular. We thank Dylan and congratulate him on a successful Junior career and wish him the best at Wisconsin Superior!”
Dylan talked about what the coaching staff meant to him this year “The coaching staff has been elite, obviously both Whitey(Ryan White) and Falker(Justin Falk) have played at the highest level, and they did a great job of translating what it takes to move up and get there.”
The Flyers organization would like to thank Dylan for his efforts and him on his achievement. We wish you all the best as you take the next step.
