In 2008-09, Pyatt registered 10-9-19 and 43 PIM in 69 games with the Vancouver Canucks while also appearing in four playoff games. The 6-foot-3, 232-pound Pyatt has registered 103-111-214 and 354 PIM in 606 career NHL games with the New York Islanders, Buffalo Sabres, Vancouver Canucks and Coyotes.
