Taormina joins today's NHL Live
Rookie blueliner leads Devils' defensemen in scoring
Taormina recorded his first NHL point last Wednesday at Buffalo, setting up Ilya Kovalchuk's overtime goal that clinched New Jersey's first win of the season. In the Devils' next outing versus Colorado, Taormina notched his first career goal and added an assist for his first multi-point game.
A native of Warren, Mich., Taormina signed with the Devils as a free agent in February. Never drafted, he played four seasons at Providence College (Hockey East). He turns 24 on Oct. 20.
