Kalamazoo, Mich. — The Kalamazoo Wings have signed center Justin Taylor for the upcoming season, the team announced.

Taylor, who is entering his sixth season with Kalamazoo and seventh year as a professional, is the team’s all-time leading ECHL goal scorer with 79. The 26-year-old is one point shy of tying Kory Karlander (170 points) for third all-time in Kalamazoo’s ECHL history.

Last season, the Mindemoya, Ontario native played in 60 games, registering 34 points (11g-23a) before adding a goal and an assist in five games in the Kelly Cup Playoffs.

Before turning pro in 2010, Taylor played for the London Knights in the OHL and was a sixth round (180th overall) selection of the Washington Capitals in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
