Taylor was reassigned to AHL Belleville, per the official AHL transaction log. With Ottawa's season coming to a close, Taylor will bump down to AHL Belleville and receive some playing time as the minor league season comes to a close. The 31-year-old received his only start of the season Saturday against Boston but was just able to stop 30 of 34 shots on goal in his first NHL appearance since 2012-13.
Taylor made 30 saves on 34 shots Saturday, as his first NHL game of the year closed out his team's season with a 5-2 loss to the Bruins. There wasn't anything memorable about Taylor's numbers, but that's been true of whoever Ottawa has put in the goal this season. Taylor was under a one-year contract this year and will become a free agent, and odds are that he'll be playing next year in the AHL, whether it's with Belleville again or another organization.
Taylor will tend the twine for Saturday's season finale against the Bruins, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. Taylor will log his first NHL game since 2012-13 when he was with Calgary. The 31-year-old spent the past four seasons playing overseas before linking up with Ottawa this past offseason. The Englishman will likely spend the bulk of the 2018-19 campaign with AHL Belleville, given that both Craig Anderson and Mike Condon are also under contract next year.
The Senators recalled Taylor from AHL Belleville on Tuesday, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. Mike Condon (upper body) won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Sabres, so Taylor will likely backup Craig Anderson in Buffalo. The 31-year-old netminder will be demoted to the minors as soon as Condon is cleared to return.
Taylor was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Saturday. Taylor was with the parent club for less than 24 hours as relief for Craig Anderson, who is battling an illness. The 31-year-old backstop hasn't played in a NHL game since the 2012-13 season, when he posted a 1-1-0 record and .912 save percentage for the Flames.
