The 26-year-old Taylor's only prior NHL experience came during the 2007-08 season with the Los Angeles Kings. He relieved Erik Ersberg for the third period in a 7-2 loss to Dallas on March 29, 2008 and allowed two goals on 10 shots.
I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
