Colorado Eagles Sign Taylor Vause

Tuesday, Aug. 19th, 2014

WINDSOR, Colo. - The Colorado Eagles, proud affiliate of the NHL’s Calgary Flames and the Adirondack Flames of the AHL, announced Tuesday that they have signed forward Taylor Vause for the 2014-15 season.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound forward split time last season between the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL and the Texas Stars of the AHL. The 22 year-old posted 14 points, including 10 goals during his 21 games with the Steelheads. The Calgary, Alberta native also notched nine points in 24 games with the Stars, ultimately culminating with Vause and the Stars clinching the Calder Cup as the champions of the AHL in 2014. In total, Vause has registered 28 points in 84 AHL contests, all with Texas.

Prior to making his pro debut in the AHL, Vause spent five seasons with the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL, with his final season spent as the team’s captain. The centerman notched 190 points in 273 total games with the Broncos, including a 2011-12 season that would see him lead the team in scoring, netting 37 goals and 46 assists over 72 regular season contests. Vause would also claim the Doug Wickenheiser Trophy as the WHL’s Humanitarian of the Year in 2012.
