Taylor's Comments: "Joe enters his senior year with 32 career goals, despite a snake-bittten junior year in which nothing went his way. He has a knack around the net and has the offensive weapons to score goals in a variety of ways. We are expecting him to regain his sophomore year scoring touch which saw him notch 18 goals, half of which were game winners. Joe may be used at both wing and center, and will be a cornerstone on one of our top offensive lines." 2004-05: Skated in all 32 games and had five goals and 11 assists for 16 points...
