Tyler Austin Biggs (born April 30, 1993) is an American professional ice hockey player currently under contract with the Kalamazoo Wings in the ECHL. Biggs was selected in the first round, 22nd overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs.[1]

Playing careerEdit

The son of former NHL centre Don Biggs, Tyler Biggs was born in Binghamton, New York, and grew up in Loveland, Ohio. He played for the Toronto Jr. Canadiens during the 2008–09 season while enrolled at Loveland High School, then transferred to Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the following fall, to join the USA Hockey National Team Development Program.[2] Biggs played one season with the Miami RedHawks of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA)[3] before joining the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League for the 2012–13 OHL season.

On July 1, 2015, Biggs was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins with Phil Kessel, Tim Erixon, and a 2016 2nd round pick for Scott Harrington, Nick Spaling, Kasperi Kapanen, and Pittsburgh's 3rd round pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft along with a conditional pick exchange between the teams depending on Pittsburgh's 2016 NHL regular season performance. Toronto also retained 15% of Kessel's salary in this trade.[4]
