SYLVANIA, Ohio — Tam-O-Shanter attracts the brightest local hockey stars during the off-season for clinics with Nick Parillo. One of those stars is current Ohio State Buckeye defenseman, Gordi Myer.

He is a Sylvania native and went to Northview for two years. He transferred from Northview to be closer to his junior hockey team in Cleveland, pursuing a junior career that led from Cleveland to Nebraska and then to Green Bay. His play caught the attention of D-I NCAA scouts and earned him a spot on the OSU roster.

Myer just wrapped up his sophomore season down in Columbus where he was a mainstay on that blue line for a Buckeye team that made it all the way to the Frozen Four.

He's happy to be home for the summer and ready for another big year.

"It feels great to be home," says Myer. "Last summer I had shoulder surgery so I wasn't able to come home. Throughout the whole year it was a grind, but it was a lot of fun. You take it one game at a time and we ended up in the Frozen Four, which is something I never thought I'd be able to do at Ohio State to be honest with you. It was amazing and we've got the same team coming back and we're trying to get right back there."
