April 2013 - After a successful freshman regular season in the Ontario Hockey League scoring 26 goals and 53 points (60 games), Tyler Biggs fizzled out during post-season action with the Oshawa Generals. In nine playoff contests, the big winger tallied one lone assist and went minus-1 playing big minutes for the Generals. With his OHL season done, the Toronto Maple Leafs may consider calling him up to the Marlies of the AHL but cracking the lineup with 14 healthy forwards could prove to be tough. Brendan Ross
February 2013 - Biggs looks like he has hit the rookie wall. Making the adjustment from College Hockey to the rigors of the OHL schedule has seemed to take a toll on Biggs as he has been sputtering since returning from his Gold Medal effort at the 2012/13 World Junior Tournament. Still has a more than respectable 44 points in 50 games which is great for a power forward but has only produced four points in his last seven after his scorching start to the season doesn't seem as impressive. Hopefully he can pick things back up and help keep the team rolling in Oshawa. - Travis Watson
December, 2012 - Biggs name is on the final roster for USA's WJC squad. He will be called on to provide grit and a physical presence up front for the Americans. Rich Dillon
December 2012 - Tyler Biggs was one of the 27 American players named to the USA Preliminary roster for the upcoming 2013 World Junior Championships. Brendan Ross
November 2012 – Signed his three year entry level deal with Toronto and was assigned to the Oshawa Generals. He has been skating on the right side of OHL superstar Boone Jenner and has put 21 points on the board in 22 games. Oshawa general manager, Jeff Twohey recently discussed the chemistry between the two, the overall game Biggs plays and the way his play may project on the Leafs, on Sportsnet’s, ‘Hockey Central at Noon’.

August, 2012- Biggs had a good showing at the USA Hockey National World Junior Development Camp, finishing second to in scoring in the scrimmages, with seven points in five games. He signed an entry-level contract with Toronto as well. Rich Dillon
February, 2012 – An aggressive, abrasive winger still growing into his large frame, Biggs is known more for his physical play than scoring at this point. He lit the lamp nine times in 37 games in his debut season at Miami (OH). He has soft hands for a big man.
Fantasy Outlook: B-
He’s several years away, but the Leafs are hoping that Biggs will blossom into a Milan Lucic-type power forward.
