Bird back with Solar Bears

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears have agreed to terms with forward Tyler Bird on a contract for the 2020-21 season. 

Bird returns to the Solar Bears after suiting up in 34 games with Orlando last season, compiling 11 points (5g-6a) and 18 penalty minutes. Bird also made his American Hockey League debut after signing a Professional Tryout agreement with the Syracuse Crunch on Feb. 22, and recorded two assists and two penalty minutes in five games with Syracuse.

The 24-year-old has tallied 23 points (8g-15a) and 37 penalty minutes in 79 career ECHL games with Orlando, Greenville, Reading and Wheeling.

Prior to turning pro, the Andover, Massachusetts native played four seasons of collegiate hockey for Brown University, where he collected 35 points (22g-13a) 40 penalty minutes in 120 games for the Bears. Bird only missed four games during his NCAA career, and was named an alternate captain for his senior season.

Bird was a fifth-round selection (137th overall) of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
