Bergey’s Inc.
SOL SHSHL Player of the Week

This recognition is sponsored by Bergey’s Inc. Athletes are chosen based on nomination of coaches, and the recipient must be a positive presence on the ice and a credit to the game. Consideration also is given to the student-athlete’s standing in the school and community.



Tyler Greenstein, Senior, North Penn High School

The Knights’ captain leads the team with 22 points. In seven games, the senior center had six goals and 16 assists and is coming off a one-goal, six-assist game against William Tennent. A four-year varsity player, he leads by example. Greenstein plans to attend college and major in mechanical engineering.


Note from the coach:
“Tyler’s been a great player for us,” North Penn coach Kevin Vaitis said. “He’s been a four-year player with the varsity team. He’s somebody we relied on even last year as a junior and is somebody that’s stepped up this year being a senior as the captain of the team as well. He definitely leads by example on the ice with just how hard he works every time he steps on the ice for a shift.

“He’s got a great shot, he’s a very good stick handler and he has tremendous speed, and when you’re able to put those three together, it just makes him a dangerous player offensively.  He also pays attention to how he plays in the defensive zone as well. He picks and chooses the right times to move the puck. Two games ago against Abington, he had two goals, and the next game, for example, he was able to find his teammates and move the puck to them and get them involved in the game as well. He’s a double threat on the ice with his passing ability and his ability to score.”


About Tyler:
Best memory playing high school hockey:  My favorite high school hockey memory occurred my freshman year for North Penn in the Flyers Cup play in the game against Perkiomen Valley. This was my first experience in the Flyers Cup, and I scored the crucial opening goal off of a pass from Andrew Galetta. At the time, a lot of my travel teammates were on the opposing team and one of them, Dylan Nassoiy, fist bumped me as I skated back to the bench. We ended up winning the game in a close battle. 

Part of the game I enjoy most: The part of hockey that I enjoy the most is being in the locker room with my teammates preparing for games. I love blasting music and celebrating with the team after big wins.
How did you get involved in hockey? My involvement in hockey was actually an accident. I live two miles from Hatfield Ice, and my parents thought it was a good idea for me to learn to ice skate, as they thought this would be a fun thing for me to do from time to time. Turns out, I really liked it and from there I started taking skating lessons, and then I joined Learn to Play Hockey. I started playing in-house hockey as a mite and started playing travel for the Ice Dogs as a Squirt. 

My role models are: My Mom and my Dad, I really admire their work ethic and the passion they put into everything they do. 

Music on mobile device: Anything by Travis Scott and Future and my favorite band is the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, my favorite song from them being Californiacation. My favorite song in general is Headlines by Drake. 

Favorite food:  Chick-fil-A Nuggets

Favorite class: I am really enjoying Math with Mr. Burrell this year and Physics with Mr. Young.
Future plans: My future plan is to attend one of five schools: Virginia Tech, Drexel, Georgia Tech, Delaware or Penn State University Park to study Mechanical Engineering.
Four people I’d invite to a dinner party: Casey Neistat, Elon Musk, Will Ferrell, Patrick Kane.
