Kings Goaltender Makes Glove Save, Talbot Impresses in Seventh NHL Stop
In a game against the Colorado Avalanche, the Los Angeles Kings’ netminder Cam Talbot delivered a remarkable glove save during the month of October. Talbot has played a significant role in the team’s impressive start to the new season.
Los Angeles marks Talbot’s seventh stop in his 11 seasons in the NHL. “And, I think, five in the last six years,” said the 36-year-old goaltender. He made his NHL debut with the New York Rangers in 2013, then embarked on stints with Edmonton, Philadelphia, Calgary, Minnesota, and Ottawa. Following a challenging season in Ottawa, he crossed paths with the Los Angeles Kings.
After experiencing numerous moves and extensive practice selling homes due to relocation, Talbot is aiming to put down roots in Los Angeles and make it his final stop in his career. His performance has been exceptional, boasting a 10-4-1 record, a 2.02 goals-against average, and .928 save percentage in his 15 appearances for the Kings. Talbot’s comfort within the team has been unparalleled, “I love the group. It’s one of the tightest groups I’ve ever been a part of,” he said.
Following a challenging season in Ottawa, Talbot joined the Los Angeles Kings seeking an opportunity to shine and play for a winning team. He signed a “show-me” contract, proving his talents and reliability to the Kings, which he has unequivocally accomplished. Talbot’s contribution has impressed the coaching staff and teammates, providing stable and skillful goaltending. Although Talbot may not repeat his energy-sapping performances of yesteryear, he is committed to contributing his best effort to solidify the Kings as a Stanley Cup contender.
Talbot and his family have settled comfortably in Los Angeles, marking it as a place to create lasting memories. The kids love the picturesque Southern California sunsets from their rooftop and have adjusted well in school. With a promising team and a newfound sense of belonging, Talbot is determined to make this opportunity with the Kings a defining chapter in his enduring career.
