Tyler Dyck - SAMAC Engineering

Tyler Dyck joined SAMAC in 2009 and now leads our collision/accident reconstruction team (speeds, vehicle motions, event data recorder analysis, occupant dynamics, seatbelts, etc.). After 5 years in the WHL (Western Hockey League), Tyler took engineering at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, graduating 1st in his engineering class (GPA 4.2/4.3).

Background – I was born in Calgary before moving to Saskatchewan for 7 years, as my father was in the oil patch. The intention was always to move back to Calgary, which we did when I was 13. I have been skating since (maybe before) I could walk, and grew up at the rinks. At the age of 16, I began playing in the Western Hockey League with the Kootenay Ice, where I won a WHL championship in 2000 and played in the Memorial Cup in Halifax. Other stops included the Tri-City Americans and Brandon Wheatkings. After 5 years in the WHL and attending 3 National Hockey League training camps (Anaheim Ducks, Washington Capitals, Calgary Flames), I attended/played for St. Francis Xavier University for 3 years (National Championships berth in 2007) and Dalhousie University for 2 years. I got married in 2008 and after graduation in 2009, have been working at SAMAC. I have been certified in the past as a strength coach and continue to enjoy weight training, as well as golf, hockey, and all other sports I’ve tried.
