A nice autograph from Dave Taylor, clearly from the 1,000 point club. Actually, Dave ended his career with 1,069 points, all with one team, the LA Kings. Hailing from Lewack, Ontario, Dave was drafted 210th overall, 15th round in the 1975 NHL draft. I’d say that pick up was likely on the same echelon as a Henrik Zetterberg / Pavel Datsyuk pick up for the Kings.
Dave has carved out quite a nice NHL career for himself, as described above and now serves as the VP of Hockey Operations for the St.Louis Blues who have been great this year. At the time of this, St.Louis Blues sit tied with Vegas (wuuuutttt???) for tops in the Western Conference.
I don’t know much about Dave Taylor, so I YouTube’d Dave’s name and here is a pretty vicious fight between him and Ray Bourque. You can tell they actually want to beat the heck out of each other.
