With Miikka Kiprusoff's wife giving birth, the Calgary Flames decided to recall Daniel Taylor from the AHL.

We'll see if he or Joey MacDonald gets the start on Monday. Both players will face an interesting challenge in the Dallas Stars, who must be angry after getting destroyed 8-1 by the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday.

Calgary has returned Daniel Taylor to the AHL.

The Flames made the move in order to activate number one goalie Miikka Kiprusoff from injured reserve. Taylor posted a 1-1-0 record, a .912 save percentage and a 3.00 goals-against average while up with Calgary.

Flames goaltender Daniel Taylor was solid in Sunday's outing en route to a 4-2 win over the Canucks.

Taylor blocked 29 of 31 shots and delivered with his first career win in the league. All signs point to Miikka Kiprusoff returning to action soon, but Joey MacDonald is also somewhere in the mix for playing time, making Taylor more risky than he should be.
Sun, Mar 3, 2013 11:31:00 PM

Daniel Taylor allowed four goals on 37 shots in the Flames 4-0 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.

Taylor got off to a shaky start to his NHL career, allowing his first goal 41 seconds into the game. He settled down until the third period where the team collapsed and the Coyotes scored three times. He's a rookie on a mediocre team so results like these are going to happen. Better to leave him be until he proves himself.

Daniel Taylor will start in his first NHL game on Monday.

Taylor got 20 minutes of playing time on March 29, 2008 and hasn't played in an NHL game since. He's splitting the goaltending duties with Joey MacDonald while Miikka Kiprusoff (knee) is sidelined.

Daniel Taylor has been called up by the Calgary Flames.

Taylor won't start on Sunday, but Calgary is about to start a stretch of three contests in four days, so Taylor could get some work. He has a 1.82 GAA and .929 save percentage in 27 AHL games this season.

Calgary Flames place G Daniel Taylor on waivers.

Taylor signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Wednesday, but he never appeared in a game. It's unclear if he'll be assigned to the Flames' AHL affiliate once he clears waivers.
Tue, Feb 12, 2013 12:22:00 PM

Daniel Taylor is ready for his second shot in the NHL.

Taylor logged 20 minutes with the Los Angeles Kings back in 2007-08 and ended up allowing two goals. Now 26-years-old, Taylor is back in the NHL as Leland Irving's understudy while Miikka Kiprusoff (lower body) is day-to-day. "Coming back into it, I know what to expect," said Taylor. "My game’s really come a long way as far as my mental side. If my number’s called again, I’ll definitely be a lot more ready than I was before." Irving will start on Thursday.
