Rams add third recruit in goaltender Troy Timpano
TORONTO - The Ryerson Rams men's hockey program is excited to announce the third recruit added to the roster for the 2018-19 season in goaltender Troy Timpano.
Timpano has spent the past five seasons in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), playing 179 career games with the Sudbury Wolves, and, more recently, the Erie Otters. Timpano registered a .889 save percentage and 3.58 goals against average in that time, winning the OHL Championship with the Erie Otters in 2017.
Timpano spent the latter months of the 2017-18 season with the Georgetown Raiders of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL), posting a 1.77 goals against average and a .948 save percentage in seven career regular season games, as well as .916 save percentage through the Raiders’ 24-game postseason run.
The Pickering, Ont. native self-describes his playing style as “relentless, hard-working, and mentally tough, with a high hockey IQ.”
“We are excited to add Troy to our program and look forward to watching him continue to develop as a player and person,” remarks Rams head coach Johnny Duco. “Troy brings a wealth of experience and a winning pedigree to Ryerson after winning the OHL championship last season in Erie. Troy is an excellent puck handler that brings a strong compete level to the crease.”
Before the OHL, Timpano played minor midget hockey with the Toronto Titans of the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL). He was drafted 27th overall by Sudbury in the 2013 OHL draft and played with the Canada’s U17 squad in 2014.
Timpano will be entering Ryerson’s Business Management program in September.
“Ryerson offers one of the best business programs in Canada, combined with a well recognized hockey program to enable me to further develop and reach my goals,” says Timpano.
Timpano’s commitment marks the third men’s hockey recruitment for the upcoming season, with commitments from Brandon Glover and Garrett Forrest announced earlier in the month.
