Travis Dermott (born December 22, 1996) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL). Before turning professional, Dermott was rated as a top prospect who was projected as a possible first-round pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. He was ultimately selected in the second round, 34th overall, by the Maple Leafs.

Born in Newmarket, Ontario, Dermott was drafted by the Erie Otters in the 2012 Ontario Hockey League Draft. His tenure with the team stretched over three seasons and he was named to the 2014 First All-Rookie Team. He has also competed with Canada men’s national junior ice hockey team at the 2016 IIHF World U20 Championship.

After making his professional career debut in 2016 with the Leafs American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, Dermott was utilized on the team’s penalty-kill and moved to the right-hand side as a left-handed shot. He made his NHL debut in 2018 and, after losing to the Boston Bruins in the first round, went on to help the Marlies win their first Calder Cup in franchise history.
