The anticipation was killer.
Tyson Galloway was gathered around family watching the draft and found himself getting anxious to see where he would land. Once the second round came around, the wait was over as he saw Calgary would be his new home in the future.
“It was very exciting, it got really loud when it happened and I’m just thrilled. My family were probably more excited than I was, I was more relived that I was drafted and they were so happy for me. Being drafted to a team like Calgary that’s a big city, an NHL city is unbelievable.”
