Tyler Moss
The early nineties saw the emergence of big/tall butterfly style goalies. Much of this can probably be attributed to the success of Patrick Roy and later on Martin Brodeur. Tyler Moss was born in Ottawa, Ontario and played net for the Kingston Frontenacs of the OHL. He was drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2nd round, #29 overall in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. Tyler began his pro career in the IHL with the Atlanta Knights in 1995 and spent a lot of time in the AHL. He got his break into the NHL in 1997-98 with the Calgary Flames. In March 2000 he was traded from the Calgary Flames with Rene Corbet to the Pittsburgh Penguins for Brad Werenka. He ended up spending 12 games with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2000-01 before heading back to the minors. After stints with the Lowell Lock Monsters and Manitoba Moose he was a single game call up of the Vancouver Canucks in 2002-03. He was on the move again in 2004, traded from the Vancouver Canucks organization to the Edmonton Oilers for Peter Sarno. He has spent the last few years in the Oilers farm system, playing for the RoadRunners of the AHL.
