Taylor Raddysh a Lightning prospect with potential
Rookie Taylor Raddysh turned in a most auspicious first pro season with the Syracuse Crunch in 2018-2019. Known as a points producer, Raddysh’s skill earned him selection by Tampa Bay in the second round of the 2016 NHL draft. The transition from junior hockey to the AHL did not dilute his reputation as a scorer.
Raddysh enjoyed a nine-game point scoring streak through late November 2018, tying the record for Crunch rookies in the Lightning affiliation era. He tied Nikita Kucherov, now a superstar with Tampa Bay and the NHL’s leading scorer last season.
