  • Canadiens' Matt Taormina: Placed on waivers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/27/17) Montreal waived Taormina on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    The 30-year-old blueliner has only appeared in 12 NHL games since the 2012-13 campaign, so he's nothing more than an organizational depth player at this stage in his career. He'll likely spend the entirety of the 2017-18 season in the minors.

    Canadiens' Matt Taormina: Signs two-way deal with Montreal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Taormina signed a two-year, two-way deal with the Canadiens on Saturday, the Montreal Gazette reports.

    The 30-year-old Taormina spent all of last season with Tampa Bay's affiliate in the American Hockey League, notching 60 points in 70 games for Calder Cup-winning Syracuse. He'll likely bolster the defense for the Laval Rocket during its inaugural season as Montreal's AHL affiliate.

    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.
