Chris Taylor (born March 6, 1972 in Stratford, Ontario) is a professional ice hockey player who last played for the Rochester Americans in the American Hockey League. He is currently their Developement Coach.

Career[edit | edit source]

Taylor had a stellar junior career with the London Knights and graduated from the team as their all-time points leader with 378 (he has since been passed by Corey Perry, who graduated with 380 points). His professional career has been less impressive: Taylor was drafted by the New York Islanders in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft (2nd round, 27th overall), and played for the Islanders, the Boston Bruins and Buffalo Sabres of the NHL, but he bounced between the NHL and the minor leagues most of the time before taking his game overseas when he signed with the Frankfurt Lions of Germany's Deutsche Eishockey Liga before the 2006/07 season. On July 16, 2009, Taylor agreed to a two-year contract with the Rochester Americans, a team he had already played for from 1999 through 2006.

He retired in 2011 from the Americans.

Personal[edit | edit source]

His brother Tim Taylor had a successful career in the NHL and captained the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2006–2007 season.
