History

2010-11: Tyler Moy skated for the California Titans U16 team. He scored 12 goals with 17 assists and 18 penalty minutes in 20 regular season games and had 2 goals with 5 assists and 4 penalty minutes in five playoff games. Moy was invited to USA Hockey’s Select 16 Development Camp. He was selected by Omaha in the second round (26th overall) of the 2011 USHL Futures Draft.

2011-12: Moy moved to Illinois to play for the Chicago Fury U18 AAA midget team. He was the team’s second-leading scorer with 18 goals and 27 assists and had 6 penalty minutes in 40 games. Moy committed to attending Harvard in 2013-14 in February 2012.

2012-13: Moy joined Omaha in the USHL and was one of three players to play in all 64 games for the Lancers. He scored 4 goals with 19 assists and was -5 with 22 penalty minutes. Omaha missed the playoffs; finishing fifth in the Western Conference.

2013-14: Moy appeared in 27 of 31 games for Harvard in his freshman season; playing both center and right wing. He scored 4 goals with 6 assists and was -7 with 2 penalty minutes. The Crimson finished 11th in ECAC Hockey and lost to Yale in a preliminary round playoff series.

 2014-15: Moy had a breakout season for Harvard as a sophomore in what was a turnaround season for the Crimson. Moy scored 12 goals with 15 assists and was +12 with 16 penalty minutes in 37 games. After finishing sixth in ECAC Hockey in the regular season, Harvard defeated rival Yale in a quarterfinal series, topped first-place Quinnipiac in the semifinals and defeated Colgate, 4-2, in the conference championship game. Nebraska-Omaha defeated Harvard, 4-1, in the semifinals of the Midwest Regional. In his third year of draft eligibility, Moy was not among the North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings when he was selected by Nashville in the sixth round (175th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft. 

Talent Analysis

Moy is a cerebral two-way forward who can play center or wing. He skates well and has added size and bulk to his frame since the beginning of his college career. The California native showed a scoring touch to go with his responsible defensive game in his sophomore season at Harvard. Not expected to be a high-end scorer at the pro level, Moy's size and positional awareness make him a candidate to play a lower line center as a professional.

Future

Moy skated in the Predators' development camp in July and will return to Harvard for his junior season in 2015-16. Long-term Moy has the skating ability and skill set to fit in well with the direction in which the Nashville franchise is headed. He will likely require time at the minor pro level but his all-around game suggests he can be a valuable lower line, two-way center with some scoring ability one day.
