Royals Goaltender Jon Quick Recalled To Manchester
Reading, PA - The Reading Royals of the ECHL, affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League and the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, today announced that goaltender Jon Quick has been recalled to Manchester. The Monarchs also assigned goaltender Daniel Taylor to the Royals. Quick (6'1"/200) (21), a first year pro from Milford, Connecticut, played thirteen games with the Royals-including the last twelve in a row-compiling a record 7-5-1 with a 2.46 goals against average (tenth in the league) and a .907 save percentage. At the time of his recall, Quick was tied for the league lead in wins (7), while leading the league in minutes played (756). Quick, who secured his first pro shutout, first pro goal and first pro assist while with the Royals, was second in the league in total saves with 304.
Taylor, (5'11"/186) (21), a seventh round pick of the Kings in 2004, served as a back-up for the Monarchs in one game this season but has not yet seen action in the 2007-08 season. Last year, Taylor, a second year pro who hails from Plymouth, England, started the season with the Bakersfield Condors, where he played seventeen games, compiling a record of 7-7-2 with a 4.33 gaa and .872 save percentage. In mid-February, Taylor joined the Wheeling Nailers for one game-a 4-3 overtime loss to the Johnstown Chiefs on February 24, 2007. He then moved on to the Texas Wildcatters, where he played portions of two regular season games, but was the goaltender of record in only one (0-1-0, 1.61, .905). In the playoffs, after substituting into Game One of the South Division Semi-Final match-up against the Gwinnett Gladiators, Taylor came on to win the next three consecutive games for the Wildcatters-the final two in overtime-and take the first round playoff series. The Wildcatters then advanced to the South Division Finals, where they were defeated by the Florida Everblades, four games to two. In that series, Taylor was on the losing end (5-0) in Game One, and he played the final two periods in Game Three (a 5-2 loss), allowing two goals on twenty-six shots over forty minutes.
The Royals return to action on Wednesday Night (7:00 pm) when they travel to the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, New Jersey to take on the Trenton Devils for the third time this season. The game night broadcast will begin at 6:30 pm with the pre-game warm-up show on ESPN Radio 1240 am in Ephrata, PA, as well as on the internet through the Royals' website, www.royalshockey.com. Streaming video is available on a pay per view basis through the B2 Networks.
