The Wolf Pack announced another signing on Friday for the upcoming season as defenseman Jeff Taylor returns with an AHL Deal for one year.

Wolf Pack bring back Jeff Taylor

The 27 year old is entering his third season with the organization and provides additional depth on the blue line for Hartford. In the last two seasons, Taylor spent time mainly in the ECHL with the Maine Mariners (2019-20) and Jacksonville Icemen (2020-21). Despite an already crowded blue line, Taylor will be a good option for the Wolf Pack if the organization suffers injuries or multiple call ups. You could never have enough depth.

On Taylor’s experience, he brings four seasons in the professional ranks. The defenseman participated in 56 games in the ECHL along with 78 AHL games. He will be able to mentor prospects at either level depending where the roster shakes out.

He will face tough competition for spots in Hartford’s training camp. There are plenty of defenseman in the system and everyone will be fighting to prove that they are worthy to stay on the roster.

Hartford now has two players on AHL deals for the upcoming season.
