Jost was the 10th overall pick in the 2016 NHL draft who went on to play at the University of North Dakota before being called up. He and his sister were raised by their single mother with the help from his grandparents. When Tyson was ready to play in a more challenging hockey league, he moved away from home but his mother couldn’t move with him so his grandparents did and helped raise him from then on.
Tyson and his grandpa have a special bond and that’s evident by the emotion Jim shows. Here he is just last week when Tyson made his NHL debut.
