From Kevin Wickersham, Dobber Prospects:

He’s blazing fast on skates and moves with amazing agility, versatility and explosiveness. He has a great mind for the game, at which he excels both on offence and defence, and really takes charge of matters when he’s out there. A true leader at age 18

 

Madden is also an ‘intangibles’ darling – known for his leadership qualities, willingness to do whatever it takes and laying it all out there. He also isn’t afraid to mix it up and get to the front of the net.

USHL Update – Tyler Madden

by Kevin Wickersham on February 16, 2018
 
Image result for tyler madden

As we hit the two-thirds mark for the USHL campaign, with teams clustered around the 40-game point in a 60-contest regular schedule, one prospect in particular has raced up the rankings.

While the league’s generally most highly regarded and publicized this year (Oliver Wahlstrom, Bode Wilde and Joel Farabee) play for the US National Team Development Program, Tri-City center Tyler Madden who began the year largely off the radar has gained momentum as the NHL Entry Draft grows nearer.

Best known as  son of respected NHL veteran, winner of three Stanley Cups, and current Cleveland Monster Head Coach John Madden, Tyler is cutting his teeth effectively in post-high school hockey having spilt time with the Storm and Central Illinois Flying Aces as a rookie. He’s blazing fast on skates and moves with amazing agility, versatility and explosiveness. He has a great mind for the game, at which he excels both on offense and defense, and really takes charge of matters when he’s out there. A true leader at age 18.

While he could stand to add a bit of bulk at this point, his 5-10 frame weighing in at 152 pounds, Madden’s play stands out as his recent MVP recognition for the East squad during the USHL/NHL Top Prospects game demonstrated. His two goals were highlights for the game-winners. Madden also put on a show for the silver-winning Team US club during December’s World Junior A Challenge with three goals and an assist in four games.

Filling out the depth with someone who'll be a very good role player for us.  He doesn't play small.

Good profile on what he is like.

 

Going to Northeastern next season (where Gaudette played)
