An offensive star in junior and the minors, Tim Taylor made a career for himself in the NHL by forechecking and playing excellent defence. He began his ninth NHL season in 2001-02 as a leader of the young Tampa Bay Lightning.

Born in Stratford, Ontario, Taylor played junior with the London Knights. He was chosen 36th overall by the Washington Capitals in 1988 and returned to junior for one last season. During his first five pro seasons he was a scoring star in the AHL and signed as a free agent with the Detroit Red Wings. In 1993-94, he led the league with 117 points while skating for the Adirondack Red Wings and was named to the first all-star team.

Beginning in 1994-95, Taylor was a solid defensive player for the Red Wings and helped the team win its first Stanley Cup in 42 years, in 1997. Prior to the 1997-98 season, he signed as a free agent with the Boston Bruins and recorded his first 20-goal season. The next year his playing time was reduced by injuries. Taylor signed with the New York Rangers in 1999 and was a defensive role player for two years. In January 2001 he was knocked out for most of the season after suffering an abdominal injury and subsequently signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning prior to the 2001-02 season.

Upon his arrival with the Lightning, Taylor continued to provide strong leadership and a solid defensive game while helping Tampa Bay capture its first Stanley Cup title in 2004 and the second of his career.
