On Taylor and Taylor.

In case you missed today’s notebook, including items on Karl Taylor’s semi-recent contract extension, some injury updates and some alumni updates, have a gander here.

One item that was left on the virtual cutting-room floor was about Justin Taylor …


Center Justin Taylor is often among the last guys left stretching after a game or a practice. It’s a small price to pay after missing all of last season with a back injury.

“There was a time when I thought it didn’t look so good,” he said. “I couldn’t bend over and touch my toes. … Deep down I thought I could come back.”

Taylor never signed a contract after splitting the 2008-09 season between the Las Vegas Wranglers and three AHL teams. He suffered the initial injury sometime during that season, and he is still proceeding with caution.

“I’ve got to make sure I stay on top of it,” the 27-year-old said. “I’ve got a bunch of exercises I do before and after every game.”

In eight games with the Reign since arriving from the Idaho Steelheads in a trade for future considerations, Taylor has one goal, four assists, 13 penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating.

“He doesn’t have his legs under him yet. He got hurt this year at the start, he was out for a couple weeks,” Karl Taylor said. “He’s a big guy who’s really skilled with the puck and we’re going to look to hi to create more offense and do some things in those areas (close to the net).”

    If I might –perhaps you should consider adding a few images. I dont mean to disrespect what youve said; its very enlightening, indeed. However, I think would respond to it more positively if they could be something tangible to your ideas. Keep it up, but put a little more into it next time.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I come across a blog that is both educational and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is important; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to it.
