Danny Taylor TTM Success

Mailed:  01/04/2012
Received:  01/24/2012
Days:  20
c/o:  Abbotsford Heat

I actually only sent him 2 cards, so he sent me back the Young Guns card signed on his own.  I met Danny last summer at a local charity event.  I have been using his old goalie pads for the last 5 years or so.  I asked him in my letter, if there would be some way that I could buy a game used stick off of him so I can hang it on my wall.  No letter was sent with this, so I will have to hope for the same local event next year.  After signing as a free agent with the Springfield Falcons, he was released after only 10 games.  In those 10 games, his stats were actually better than the other goalies the team had, however, they decided to sign Manny Legace which left Danny the odd man out.  He signed on right away with the Abbotsford Heat due to an injury to Henrik Karlsson of the Calgary Flames, which in turn, forced the call up of Leland Irving from the Heat.  Danny has been amazing for the heat so far.  In 17 games, he has a 2.19 GAA, and .935 save PCT.  Hopefully, we will see him in the NHL again.

  1. did you by any chance sell those pads to someone in Kingston Ontario? I bought some pads earlier this year and they have the name Taylor on them, in LA colors. Was curious if you had any more info on them.
