Tyler Toffoli (born April 24, 1992) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward currently playing for the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted by the Kings in the second round, 47th overall, of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Toffoli was born to Rob and Mandy Toffoli and older sisters Megan and Courtney. His father Rob was also involved in hockey and was the general manager of the Toronto Jr. Canadiens while Toffoli played with them. Growing up, Toffoli attended Birchmount Park Collegiate Institute.
Toffoli was drafted 7th overall by the Ottawa 67's in the 2008 OHL Draft. At the conclusion of his rookie season, Toffoli was named to the First All-Rookie Team.
In 2010, Toffoli was drafted 169th overall by Traktor Chelyabinsk in the 2010 KHL Draft but chose to stay in the OHL. He was later drafted 47th overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Toffoli signed a three year entry level contract with the Kings on April 19, 2011. He played that season with the 67's before joining the Manchester Monarchs in the American Hockey League to begin his professional career.
On March 16, 2013, Toffoli made his NHL debut in a 5–2 win over the San Jose Sharks. 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. 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).
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' line-up.
To begin the 2013–14 season, the Kings assigned Toffoli to their AHL in Manchester. 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. 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.
During the 2014–15 season, on January 9, 2015, Toffoli was diagnosed with mononucleosis, forcing him to miss six games before rejoining Los Angeles' line-up for the team's January 31 game against the Chicago Blackhawks. He later scored his first career NHL hat-trick on February 12 in the Kings' 5–2 victory over the Calgary Flames.
During the 2016-17 NHL season, Toffoli suffered a left knee injury, forcing him to miss 19 games. He underwent successful surgery on April 25. On June 7, 2017, the Kings signed Toffoli to a three-year, $13.8 million extension, with an annual average of $4.6 million.
Toffoli became the first player to record a hat trick in the history of NHL outdoor games on February 15, 2020 versus the Colorado Avalanche.
On February 17th 2020, Toffoli was traded from the Los Angeles Kings to the Vancouver Canucks.
Toffoli married Cat Belanger in 2018.
