Ty Wishart (born May 19, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently a free agent. He grew up in Comox, British Columbia, playing minor hockey there until his midget years.

Playing career[edit]

In the 2010–11 season, Wishart was with Lightning affiliate the Norfolk Admirals when on January 1, 2011, he was traded by the Tampa Bay Lightning to the New York Islanders for goaltender Dwayne Roloson.[1] He was directly assigned to Islanders' AHL affiliate the Sound Tigers, before he was later recalled to make his debut with the Islanders. Wishart scored his first NHL goal on February 13, 2011 against Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres in a 7-6 overtime victory.

Prior to the 2013–14 season, Wishart left North America and signed a contract with Schwenninger Wild Wings of the German DEL on August 29, 2013.[2] While Wishart was expected play for the team during 2014-15 season, in August 2014 the Wild Wings terminated his contract at Wishart's request so he could return to North America for personal reasons.[3]
