Former Merritt Centennial Acts It Up On YTV (Merritt Herald Article):
Who says hockey players are one dimensional?
Fresh off playing one of Gordie Howe’s son’s in the CBC biopic Mr. Hockey, 21-year-old former Merritt Centennial Dylan Playfair has landed an ongoing role in the new YTV sitcomSome Assembly Required which premiered on Monday of this week at 6:30 p.m.
Playfair, the son of former NHLer Jim Playfair, plays the part of Malcolm Knoxford III (Knocks to his friends), a sweetly-dim extreme athlete who has been held back a few grades in school.
“He’s a happy-go-lucky, energetic, crash-test-dummy kind of guy,” Playfair told Provinceentertainment reporter Glen Schaefer.
Playfair, who was born in Fort St. James, played one season (2010-11) with the Merritt Centennials. A fan favorite, the personable Playfair registered no goals, one assist and 56 penalty minutes in 42 games.
