Tyler Gaudet (born April 4, 1993) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently playing under contract to the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Amateur[edit | edit source]

As a youth, Gaudet played in the 2006 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with a minor ice hockey team from Hamilton, Ontario.[1]

Gaudet started the 2010–11 season with the Gatineau Olympiques in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. However, after only recording five points in 32 games, he was reassigned to the Pembroke Lumber Kings.[2][3]

In his second year with the Pembroke Lumber Kings, Gaudet was encouraged by coach Sheldon Keefe to tryout for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League.[4] Gaudet later signed a major junior hockey contract with the Greyhounds as a free agent.[5]

On November 4, 2013, while playing with the Greyhounds, the Phoenix Coyotes signed Gaudet as an undrafted free agent to a three-year entry-level contract.[6] After completing the 2013–14 season with the Greyhounds, Gaudet joined the Coyotes American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Portland Pirates, to conclude the season.[7]

Professional[edit | edit source]

After being cut from the Coyotes training camp, Gaudet began the 2014–15 season in the AHL.[8] He eventually made his NHL debut on December 30, 2014, in a 4–2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.[3] On January 2, 2015, Gaudet was reassigned to the Portland Pirates.[9]

After being cut from the Coyotes training camp, Gaudet began the 2015–16 season with the Portland Pirates in the AHL.[10] On February 9, 2016, Gaudet was recalled from the AHL.[11] Gaudet scored his first NHL goal against Dallas Stars goaltender Antti Niemi on February 18, 2016, in a 6–3 Coyotes win.[12]

In the 2017–18 season, on February 26, 2018, the Coyotes traded Gaudet along with John Ramage to the Nashville Predators in exchange for Pierre-Cédric Labrie and Trevor Murphy.[13] He was assigned to AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals and played out the remainder of the campaign in adding 2 goals and 6 points in 21 games. On April 16, 2018, Gaudet agreed to a one-year, two-way contract extension to remain with the Predators.[14]

On July 24, 2019 the Toronto Maple Leafs signed Gaudet to a one-year, two-way deal worth $700,000.[15]
