Highlights
1-time AHL Best Defenseman (Eddie Shore Award) 1
1-time AHL First All-Star Team 1

Taormina has great skating ability and likes to join the attack. He has good passing skills and offensive instincts. Lacks size, which can be a problem against bigger forwards. Could improve his defensive game.
