Thomas Cullum Pyatt (born on February 14, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey center currently playing for the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League (AHL) and is a prospect for the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL). He is the son of former NHL player Nelson Pyatt and brother of Phoenix Coyote forward Taylor Pyatt.


Playing career

Pyatt grew up playing for the Thunder Bay Kings AAA program in his hometown of Thunder Bay, Ontario, with fellow New York Rangers defense Marc Staal. He began his major junior career in 2003–04, having been drafted in the second round, 21st overall in the 2003 OHL Priority Selection by the Saginaw Spirit. After a 48-point season with the Spirit in his second OHL season, he was drafted 107th overall in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Rangers.

Upon being drafted, he returned to the OHL for two more seasons. Towards the end of a 87-point campaign for Pyatt in his fourth and final major junior season in 2006–07, the Rangers signed him to a three-year, entry-level contract on March 12, 2007. At the end of the season, he was awarded the William Hanley Trophy as the OHL's Most Sportsmanlike Player after accumulating just 18 penalty minutes.

Pyatt split his rookie professional season in 2007–08 with the Rangers' minor league affiliates, the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL), tallying 14 points in 41 games, and Charlotte Checkers of the ECHL, tallying 15 points in 16 games.

On June 30, 2009, Tom was traded from the New York Rangers, along with Scott Gomez and Michael Busto, to the Montreal Canadiens for Chris Higgins, Ryan McDonagh, Pavel Valentenko and Doug Janik.
