Dana Tyrell (born April 23, 1989) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League. He was a second round selection of the Lightning, taken 47th overall at the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and made his NHL debut in 2010. He played his major junior career with the Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League.
Tyrell was a fifth round selection of the Prince George Cougars in the Western Hockey League (WHL) Bantam Draft in 2004. He appeared in one game that season before establishing himself as a regular with the Cougars in 2005–06. He scored 30 goals in his second full season, and was selected in the second round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Tampa Bay Lightning. Additionally, he made his international debut for the Canadian junior team at the 2007 Super Series, scoring one goal in eight games, but failed to make the team for the 2008 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships.
After completing a 65-point season for the Cougars in 2007–08, Tyrell was assigned to Tampa's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals. He appeared in 11 games for Norfolk, scoring one goal and five assists to complete his season. The Lightning returned him to junior to complete his 19-year-old season in 2008–09, and with 40 points in 30 games, was named to the Canadian team for the 2009 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. He never appeared in a tournament game, however, suffering a knee injury in an exhibition game against Sweden prior to the tournament. The injury required surgery to repair torn ligaments, and ended his season.
Assigned to Norfolk for the 2009–10 AHL season, Tyrell struggled early, failing to score a goal in his first 38 games, but improved in the last half of the season, scoring nine goals and 27 points in the final 36 games of his season. He earned a spot with the Lightning to begin the 2010–11 season, and made his NHL debut in Tampa's opening game against the Atlanta Thrashers. Tyrell scored his first NHL goal on October 27, 2010, against Marc-Andre Fleury of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
He is the son of Ray and Dawn Tyrell. He has two sisters, Kaitlyn and Sarah, who is his twin, and a brother, Corey. His childhood friend Zach Boychuk plays for the Carolina Hurricanes; both grew up in Airdrie, Alberta.
