Drafted to the Hawks with the 29th selection of the 2010 AFL Rookie Draft, Kayler-Thomson was elevated to the senior list prior to the opening round of the 2010 AFL season due to a spate of injuries to senior players.
He debuted against Melbourne in the opening game of the 2010 season collecting 6 marks and 17 disposals.
Hawthorn delisted him at the end of the 2010 season so he returned to Perth.
He reached his 100th game upon returning in 2011 before then missing all but two matches in 2012 due to a shoulder injury. That gave him a chance to reflect and realise he wanted a fresh start in the WAFL, and that's how he ended up at Subiaco.
