Dalton Norris to play with NTDP; Thomas Stift also practicing in Plymouth

Total Package Hockey is proud to announce that Center of Excellence student-athlete Dalton Norris has been invited to practice with USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program, and will skate with the Under-18 Team in their game against the Muskegon Lumberjacks Thursday.

Norris, the younger brother of NTDP alum Josh Norris, is currently a defenseman with the Oakland Jr. Grizzlies 18U team. He is the son of Dwayne Norris, TPH Detroit’s director of hockey.

“The TPH team is super excited for Dalton, one of our new student-athletes at the TPH CoE in Bloomfield, Mich.,” said TPH CEO Nathan Bowen. “He’s been working incredibly hard both on and off the ice, and he’s getting a nice reward for it.”

Dalton Norris is working towards becoming the third sibling to play college hockey; Josh is a sophomore forward with the Michigan Wolverines, and Coale is also a sophomore forward with the Ferris State Bulldogs.

He’s not the only CoE student-athlete earning opportunities with the NTDP; Thomas Stift has been practicing with Team USA in Plymouth, as well.

Stift, a native of Chino Hills, Calif., has moved to Michigan to join the CoE and play for Belle Tire 16U.

He has skated with the NTDP numerous times over the last few weeks.
