November 2019 – Taylor enters his Sophomore college season in the same role as his Freshman season, as he once again assumed the role of backup behind Junior netminder Mike Robinson at the University of New Hampshire. Taylor has only played in two games to this point in the season and has seen middling results, as he currently sits at a 2.91 goals-against average and a .872 save percentage, which is an improvement for the 6’3 netminder at this level. Taylor might not see much ice for the Wildcats this season, which does not bode well for his overall projection. Brandon Holmes

June 2018 – With their final pick in the 2018 Entry Draft, the Lightning selected a second netminder in Ty Taylor from the Vernon Vipers of the BCHL. As an 18-year-old, Taylor started 31 games for the Vipers posting a stellar save percentage (0.931) and GAA (1.87). With three goaltenders selected in the last two entry drafts, the Lightning have replenished their depth behind Andrei Vasilevsky and Louis Domingue quite thoroughly. Taylor will join the UNH Wildcats where he’ll work to earn the starting role and develop his game over the next four years.   Brayden Olafson
