Happy Birthday Tyler Toffoli

We still wish that we could wish him a happy 30th birthday in a Habs uniform, but it is what it is and Mike Hoffman wouldn’t have given us that kind of haul anyway.

Tyler Toffoli was signed as a free agent in the summer of 2020 after winning the Stanley Cup with the Los Angeles Kings in 2014, and a brief stint with the Vancouver Canucks at the end of the 2019-2020 season.

The Scarborough, Ontario native would of course be traded to the Calgary Flames this past February in return for a top-10 protected 1st round pick in 2022, a 5th round pick in 2023, Emil Heineman and Tyler Pitlick.

Tyler Toffoli gave Canadiens fans plenty to cheer for during his short tenure in Montreal. He came exactly as advertised and gave Montreal 28 goals in his only complete season with the team.

None of course, were bigger than the overtime goal he would score that completed the sweep against the Winnipeg Jets.
