January 2014- For the second consecutive season, Toffoli has found himself on the Los Angeles Kings active roster. This year, he played just ten games with Manchester before making the jump to the NHL. At a plus-14 rating and currently 7th on the Kings in scoring, Toffoli is also on pace for 30 points  and is rapidly becoming the forward they projected him to be. He may still have some work to do on his skating, particularly his explosiveness on break-away or odd many rush opportunities but other aspects of his game have transferred nicely to big league. His ability to score and stand up to more physical players has earned him a longer look with the Kings. The next few months will tell if his minor-league hockey days are over as some scouts believe.

May 2013- Tyler Toffoli has definitely made an impressive leap this season on his way to being a solid pro. He spent the better half of his season with the Manchester Monarchs, where he was nearly a point a game guy, putting up 51 points in just 58 games. Toffoli was called up to the Kings on March 16th where he would get 13 minutes and 20 seconds of time on the ice to prove he was NHL worthy. Although he didn’t get any points in the 5-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks, he recorded one shot on net and a couple other shots that went wide. Only two days days after his debut Toffoli got his first NHL goal and his first NHL assist en route to a 4-0 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes. He would go on to play eight more regular season games with the Kings finishing off the regular season with two goals and three assists. That’s not bad for a 21-year-old rookie in only 10 NHL games. On May 8, Toffoli was once again called up to the Kings to play in Game 5 of the Western Conference quarter-finals against the St. Louis Blues. He would go on to play Game 6 of that series and Game 1 of the Western Conference semi-finals before getting his first NHL Playoff point (assist) in Game 2 of the semi-final series against the Sharks. In Game 3 Tyler got his first NHL Playoff goal backhanding the puck past Antti Niemi to tie the game at 1 a piece. He played three more
