  • Lightning's Matt Taormina: Secures one-year, two-way extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/28/16) Taormina signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Lightning on Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Taormina has only appeared in 12 games over the last three seasons with the Bolts, going pointless in that span. He's an organizational depth option who won't break the bank.

    Lightning's Matt Taormina: Recalled from AHL Syracuse

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/16) Taormina was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Thursday, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.

    Taormina made his NHL debut in 2010-11 with the Devils, and has seen sporadic appearances ever since, never tallying more than 30 games played in a single NHL season. He'll provide the Lightning with depth on the defensive end.

    Lightning's Matt Taormina: Reassigned to AHL Syracuse

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/29/16) Taormina was reassigned to the Crunch of the AHL on Monday, Bryan Burns of NHL.com reports.

    The blueliner failed to draw into the lineup in his short stint with the club, and his return to the AHL could signify the return of Jason Garrison (lower body) from injured reserve. Taormina could be recalled again later in the season, but he doesn't have much fantasy utility even when with the parent organization.

    Lightning's Matt Taormina: Recalled by Lightning on Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/16) Taormina was recalled by the Lightning on Monday, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.

    Tampa Bay also reassigned defenseman Slater Koekkoek to AHL Syracuse on Monday, so Taormina will replace him as the team's seventh defenseman on the active roster. The 29-year-old defender led all Syracuse defenseman this season with 31 points and was an AHL All-Star, so the call-up is well warranted.

    Lightning's Matt Taormina: Reassigned to minors Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/19/15) Taormina has been reassigned to AHL Syracuse, Eric Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.

    Taormina is a skilled puck-handler, but the undrafted defenseman has only made his way into 57 NHL games between the Devils and Lightning since debuting with the former in 2010-11.

  • December 18, 2013: Lightning's Taormina Sent To AHL
    Taormina was re-assigned to AHL Syracuse on Wednesday, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.Jean-Philippe Cote was brought up and will take Taomina's place along the blue line, but Taormina's demotion also suggests Victor Hedman (lower body) will be able to go Thursday against Nashville. Taormina failed to record a point in his seven games with Tampa.
    December 4, 2013: Bolts Recall Taormina
    Taormina was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Wednesday, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.Taormina's call-up is largely for insurance purposes, as both Eric Brewer and Radko Gudas are nursing injuries at the moment. The 27-year-old was among the final cuts in training camp and isn't expected to see much meaningful ice time during his stay with the Bolts.
