  • Lightning's Matt Taormina: Having great season in AHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/24/16) Taormina leads the Syracuse Crunch with 24 points and is on pace to best his 41 points in 61 games last season.

    Taormina is an elite puck-moving defender, but he's picked up more work of late in all roles. And he's excelling. Trouble is, Taormina is now 30 and his best-before date for NHL action is rapidly approaching. He may forever be an AHL star.

    Lightning's Matt Taormina: Sent to AHL on Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/31/16) Taormina was sent down to AHL Syracuse on Monday.

    Fellow rearguard Slater Koekkoek was recalled in a corresponding move. Taormina spent just under two weeks with the big club but didn't see any game action while up, so he'll return to the Crunch for further seasoning until the Bolts call his name again.

    Lightning's Matt Taormina: Promoted from AHL Syracuse

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/19/16) Taormina was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Wednesday.

    With Slater Koekkoek heading to the minors Wednesday, the Lightning brought up the 29-year-old Taormina to bolster the blue line. Taormina is an offensive minded defenseman, evidenced by his 41 points in 61 games for Syracuse last season, and could end up spending significant time in the majors now that Koekkoek is out of the picture.

    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.
