Tyler Toffoli (born April 24, 1992) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward currently playing for the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted by the Kings in the second round, 47th overall, of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Toffoli scored his first career NHL goal on goaltender Mike Smith in his second NHL game in a 4–0 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on March 18, 2013.[1]

On April 12, 2013, Toffoli was named the recipient of the AHL's Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award for rookie of the year in the 2012–13 season. He scored 28 goals and 20 assists (48 points) in 55 AHL games for Manchester during the season, and upon the announcement, Toffoli led all rookies in goals, short-handed goals (3) and plus-minus (+20).[2]

On May 8, 2013, Toffoli made his Stanley Cup playoff debut in Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals against the St. Louis Blues, replacing the scratched Keaton Ellerby in the Kings' lineup.[3]

To begin the 2013–14 season, the Kings assigned Toffoli to their AHL in Manchester.[4] On November 9, in his third game since being recalled to the NHL along with Manchester linemate Linden Vey, Toffoli scored two goals and one assist in Los Angeles' 5–1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks, the first three-point game of his NHL career.[5] Toffoli then contributed another two-goal performance, including the eventual game-winner, against the St. Louis Blues, on December 2 in a 3–2 Kings victory. The game-winning goal marked his fourth in 14 games since he was recalled from the Monarchs.[6]

During the 2014–15 season, on January 9, 2015, Toffoli was diagnosed with mononucleosis, forcing him to miss six games before rejoining Los Angeles' lineup for the team's January 31 game against the Chicago Blackhawks.[7] He later scored his first career NHL hat-trick on February 12 in the Kings' 5–2 victory over the Calgary Flames.[8]
