Tyler Toffoli and his NSFW nickname

Tyler Toffoli LA Kings MayorsManor
We’ve covered this whole ‘hockey player nickname’ thing in the past. As noted, many guys simply get a Y or IE tacked on the end of their name – giving us such classics as Brownie, Quickie, Lewey, etc.

Coming into the season though, perhaps the best nickname on the LA Kings belonged to Kyle Clifford. Contrary to fans who tried to get ‘Big Red Dog’ to be a thing, it didn’t go anywhere. Rightfully so, he’s ‘The Colonel’ – as explained here.

But, hold the phone. We have a strong contender that has just emerged.

When you’re the Kings top prospect you get a lot of special perks…and apparently a super-cool nickname is one of them.

MayorsManor has learned that rookie Tyler Toffoli has been dubbed – wait for it – Top Titty.

“I think it’s because I scored a couple of goals upstairs, they just said Top Titty,” Toffoli explained.

“Those are the kind of goals, Top Titty Toff.  Just a little joke that a couple of the guys in Manch would say, like Andy (Andreoff) and Veysie (Linden Vey).  Andy says it the most, but it’s a pretty funny joke.”

Our research showed it was actually Vey who came up with the nickname, a fact Toffoli confirmed earlier today.

“Yeah, he comes up with names for everybody, just kind of messing around.  There’s a lot of downtime in Manch.  So, he’s always joking around with the other guys, and some of the names stick and some don’t.”

Really?   What other nicknames did he try out for Toffoli first?

Well, apparently none were needed.

“That’s the only one,” he said with a laugh.  “It’s pretty simple.  It went well, and all the guys liked it.”

Andreoff, on the other hand, hasn’t gotten away so easily.  In fact, Vey has tagged him with quite a few.

“Randall…He’s got a bunch,” Toffoli shared.  “He’s got a lot!  It seems like everyday something else comes up.”

While Toffoli, Vey and Tanner Pearson formed one of the most lethal lines in the AHL this season, it seems Pearson has been spared the wrath of Vey up until this point.

“I think he’s just Pears,” Toffoli remarked.  “Andy is his whipping boy.  He tests them all out on Andy to see what nicknames are good.  Probably because Andy gets a little mad sometimes.  Not mad, just a little bitter.”
