It is with the greatest amount of sadness and regret to have to inform you on the passing of Tyler Cragg, the General Manager of Jr. Canadiens and Canadian Ice Academy. Tyler passed away December 7th, after a lengthy battle with Brain Cancer. He died peacefully surrounded by his loving family in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
Tyler was an exceptional person who touched many people both on and off the ice. His intellectual, wisdom, humor and all around personality will be missed greatly. His contribution to the Junior Canadiens organization, his coaching of some of best GTHL teams and his contribution to the Canadian Ice Academy will be sadly missed. Tyler helped develop many great hockey players who played in the GTHL and whom are currently some of the top NHL players. Also while coaching the Junior A Canadiens in the OJHL many of his players followed the NCAA route and then on to a professional career.
A wake will be held at 50 Defiance Lane, Orleans, MA from 4-8pm on Friday, December 11th and Tyler’s funeral will be held at the Church of the Transfiguration in Orleans, Massachusetts on Saturday, December 12th at 11am.
The Junior Canadiens players for the rest of the season will be wearing a patch with TC initials. Also the Junior Canadiens Cup, hockey tournament will be also recognized as Tyler Cragg Memorial Tournament. We will be establishing a scholarship fund in Tyler’s name to promote further the development of young hockey players. The sport Tyler loved dearly and was very passionate about.
