Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dominic Moore
Dominic Moore was born August 3, 1980 in Thornhill, Ontario. The third round, 95th overall selection of the New York Rangers in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, Moore is a graduate of Harvard University.

An offensively gifted forward, Moore played four seasons at Harvard tallying 147 points (64-83-147) and earning numerous honours including; ECAC All-Tournament Team (2003), NCAA East All-Regional Team (2002-03), All Ivy-League (2002-03), Honourable Mention All-ECAC and Second Team All-Ivy (2001-02), Second Team All-ECAC and First Team All-Ivy (2000-01), ECAC All-Rookie Team and Ivy League Rookie of the Year and All-Ivy League Second Team All-Star (99-2000).

In 2003-04, Moore made his NHL debut with the Rangers, while spending the majority of the season with the club's AHL affiliate in Hartford. In 2005-06, Moore was a regular in the Rangers line up as he appeared in 82 games throughout the season. However in the off-season the Rangers traded the centreman to the Nashville Predators who would in turn trade him to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

With the Penguins Moore would tally six goals and nine assists for 15 points playing most the season with Jarkko Ruutu and Chris Thornburn. When Ronald Petrovicky returned to the Penguins line-up in January from surgery, the club had a many defensive forwards and opted to send Moore to the Minnesota Wild.

On January 11, 2008 Moore was claimed off waivers by his hometown Toronto Maple Leafs where he would go on to play some of the best hockey of his career. Unfortunately for Moore, his time in Toronto was short and he was traded to the Buffalo Sabres at the 2009 NHL trading deadline in exchange for a second round draft pick.

On October 4, 2009, Moore signed a 1 year, $1.1 million deal with the Florida Panthers. However, after less than one full season with the Panthers he was dealt to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for a second round pick on February 11, 2010.

After contributing to the Canadiens surprising run in the 2010 playoffs, Moore was on the move again. Heading back to the state of Florida, he signed a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning on July 30, 2010.

In his first year with Tampa, Moore notched a career-best 18 goals and was once again a key contributor to a lengthy playoff run. The following year would be a less successful one for the Lightning however and in the days leading up to the 2012 NHL trade deadline, Moore was traded to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for second round draft pick.

Tragedy struck Moore's family during the 2012-13 season as his wife Katie was diagnosed with liver cancer. This led to him to sit out the season in order to tend to his wife until she died in January 2013.

For the 2013-14 season, Moore returned to the NHL when he signed a one year contract with the New York Rangers. He helped the Rangers reach the 2014 Stanley Cup Final where they eventually lost to the Los Angeles Kings in five games. Due to his perseverance after his wife passed, Moore was presented with the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

Following a three-year stint with the Rangers, Moore found himself once again a free agent. August 30, 2016, he agreed to terms with the Boston Bruins and joined the club, his 10th in the NHL, the following season. He would go on to appear in all 82 games for the Bruins, scoring 11 times and adding 14 assists. At season's end Moore was once again a free agent and on July 1, 2017, signed a deal to rejoin the Toronto Maple Leafs.
