Logan Pyett (born May 26, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League (AHL). Pyett was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in the seventh round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, 212th overall.

Playing career[edit]

Pyett played major junior hockey with the Regina Pats in the Western Hockey League (WHL). He was also selected to play for Canada at the 2008 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships winning the Gold Medal. On May 24, 2008, Pyett was signed to a three-year, entry-level contract with his draft club, the Detroit Red Wings.[1]

After four seasons within the Red Wings organization, Pyett was not tendered a qualifying offer and as a free agent Pyett signed a one-year deal as a free agent with the New York Rangers on July 10, 2012.[2] He was assigned for the duration of his contract to AHL affiliate, the Connecticut Whale, for the 2012–13 season.

After two seasons in the Kontinental Hockey League with stints between Vityaz Podolsk, Admiral Vladivostok and Severstal Cherepovets, Pyett returned to North America, securing a one-year AHL contract with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on August 21, 2015.[3]

Before beginning the 2015–16 season, Pyett was diagnosed with Sarcoma in his upper leg. He was unable to appear in a game with the Phantoms and after two years off recovering, returned to the professional circuit in agreeing to a one-year contract with Japanese club, Tohoku Free Blades of the Asia League Ice Hockey.[4]

In making a successful return from cancer with the Free Blades, Pyett returned to the AHL for the 2018–19 season, agreeing to terms on a one-year contract with the Hershey Bears, affiliate to the Washington Capitals, on August 17, 2018.[5]
