Confidence Key for Ottawa Senators Draft Pick
Canadian Sport Institute Calgary – When Jonny Tychonick first started working with the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary (CSI Calgary) four years ago, it was under the condition that his homework be done before he could start training. The school work was always completed, and now Tychonick is beginning to reap the rewards of all that hard work.
At the 2018 NHL Entry Draft in June, Tychonick was selected 48th overall by the Ottawa Senators. It capped an exciting year for the puck-moving defenseman from Calgary. A year ago, he captured the Fred Page Cup with the Penticton Vees as winners of the BCHL. Then in December he represented Canada West, winning the World Junior A Challenge. Finally, in May he was officially welcomed to the University of North Dakota where he will play in the fall.
Tychonick’s association with CSI Calgary began while he was attending the National Sports School, mere steps away from the CSI Calgary facilities. Through a partnership between the school and CSI Calgary, Tychonick was able to train for one hour each day with strength and conditioning coach Jeff Osadec. This partnership worked well for Tychonick thanks to Osadec’s continual presence on the gym floor.
