After a lengthy NHL career, Taylor Pyatt is headed overseas.
The former Islander, Sabre, Canuck, Coyote, Ranger and Penguin has signed with Geneve-Servette of Switzerland’s National League A, the club announced on Thursday. Pyatt, 32, split last season between New York and Pittsburgh, racking up four goals and five points in 56 games.
A first-round pick of the Islanders (eighth overall) in 1999, Pyatt never materialized as the high-scoring power forward many expected him to be after a standout junior career with OHL Sudbury. His best NHL season came in 2006-07 with Vancouver, when he scored a career-high 23 goals and 37 points, chipping in with another six points in 12 playoff games.
It was in Vancouver, though, where Pyatt suffered terrible tragedy as his fiancee died in a car crash during the 2008-09 campaign. Pyatt left the Canucks the following season and enjoyed two good campaigns in Phoenix, scoring 30 goals for the Coyotes from 2009-11.
