Nov 5: Moy has indeed signed with Lausanne HC in Switzerland for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.
Nov 1: The Nashville Predators have placed Tyler Moy on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a contract termination. Moy is in the second year of a two season entry-level contract signed back in 2017 after graduating from Harvard. The sixth-round pick will be an unrestricted free agent once the contract is terminated.
There have been rumors from Swiss news outlets that Moy, whose mother was born in Switzerland, has been in talks with various clubs in the NLA but nothing so far has been announced. A standout in his senior year in Harvard scoring 45 points in 36 games, he hasn’t quite been able to replicate that success in the minor leagues and had been playing in the ECHL for part of this season. That can’t be what he expected when he signed with the Predators, which could have led to him wanting to terminate the deal.
If there’s no bad blood between the two, it could allow him to return to the Predators organization down the road if his play improves at his next stop. He’ll turn 24 in July though, meaning he’s closing in on the end of prospect status and entering the veteran depth portion of his career.
