The Louisiana Drillers, proud members of the NA3HL, are pleased to announce the signing of 17 year old Center, Connor Taylor from Pekin, Illinois.
Connor caught Coach Kaminski’s eye while on a recruiting trip in Chicago for the Global Hockey Showcase with his great hockey sense and vision by knowing how to slow the play down to draw someone in and make the little plays to the guy crashing the net or hitting the second wave as the weak side defensemen gets available. “Despite his smaller stature, he has a great compete level and is very solid defensively with his positioning”, said Kaminski
Also, while on the bench coaching in Chicago, Kaminski asked Connor, “where are you playing next year because I want to sign you now”! Well, the rest is history and we are glad to have signed Connor for the upcoming season. However, Coach Kaminski believes his best quality is that he is coachable and has the desire to get to the next level.
The Drillers are extremely happy to add Connor to our roster and we hope to help him achieve his dream of playing at a higher level.
The Louisiana Drillers will hold their Main Camp on August 25-29 in Lafayette, Louisiana.
