Tyler Sloan (born March 15, 1981 in Calgary, Alberta) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman for the Washington Capitals. An undrafted player, Sloan spent seven years in the minor leagues before making his NHL debut for the Capitals in his home town of Calgary.

Playing careerEdit

Sloan played junior hockey for the Calgary Royals of the Alberta Junior Hockey League and Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League. Though undrafted, he was signed by the Columbus Blue Jackets and assigned to the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League at the end of the 2001–02 season. Sloan spent the next seven seasons bouncing around the minors, playing for the Dayton Bombers and Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL, as well as the AHL's Manitoba Moose and Hershey Bears. In 2006, Sloan and the Bears won the Calder Cup championship.

Sloan was recalled by the Washington Capitals early in the 2008–09 season, where he made his National Hockey League debut for the Capitals in his hometown of Calgary against the Flames on October 21, 2008. Sloan made an immediate impact for the Capitals, levelling Calgary's Daymond Langkow with a large bodycheck, and earning the Capitals a nine-minute powerplay in the aftermath. He scored his first NHL goal on October 25th against Marty Turco of the Dallas Stars.

Sloan was sent down to Hershey on January 11, 2009 as several injured Capitals returned to action. He was recalled on May 3, 2009 during the Capitals' playoff series with Pittsburgh along with Karl Alzner and recorded an assist in Game 2 of the series the following night.
