Though he may eye the open skies, Tylan Stephens will have to settle for much slower speeds on the ice. The former Western Hockey League player has joined the Dinos men's hockey team for the 2009-10 season. A native of Calgary, Stephens chose to pursue his academic career despite having another year of eligibility in the WHL.

Dinos head coach Mark Howell says that living at home comes with a number of benefits for Stephens. The comfort and support network will help him when it comes to managing his studies and hockey.

On an exciting Friday night at the Olympic Oval, the Dinos did what was expected and defeated the Grant MacEwan Griffins 2-1. The Dinos followed up the win with a 2-1 victory in the rematch in Edmonton on Saturday.
