It’ll be a Pyatt family reunion in Geneve-Servette next season.
On Monday, the Swiss-based club announced it agreed to terms with former Tampa Bay forward Tom Pyatt, news that came roughly two weeks after the team inked his brother, veteran NHLer Taylor Pyatt.
After a lengthy NHL career, Taylor Pyatt is headed overseas.
The former Islander, Sabre, Canuck, Coyote, Ranger and Penguin has signed with Geneve-Servette of Switzerland’s National League A, the club announced on Thursday. Pyatt, 32, split last season between New York and Pittsburgh, racking up four goals and five points in 56 games.

There is a paradox that most of us face in our lives and hockey is no different. You need experience to get the full-time job for your career but you have to get the job to have that experience. The Pittsburgh Penguins have shown this to be true at the NHL level as their head coach Dan Bylsma and the rest of the organization haven't been too kind to their young players that they...

Throughout the 2013-2014 NHL season, I’ll be posting player features each Friday. This week, we’re going to take a look at Taylor Pyatt.
After missing a decent amount of time this season due to a concussion, forward Taylor Pyatt was claimed off waivers from the New York Rangers in early January. The 32-year-old...

Is Sidney Crosby in a slump or is his lack a consistent right winger to blame for his dip in production?

Sometimes we all take our love of hockey a bit too seriously and need to take a 2 minute break in the penalty box. So on this cold winter evening I introduce to you to Slapshops; a weekly collection of ridiculous photoshops, gif sets, and whatever else my twisted ginger mind comes up with. I hope you enjoy my lighthearted column, but If not then feel free to troll me on twitter....

The Pittsburgh Penguins have claimed forward Taylor Pyatt off waivers, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
Pyatt, 32, has played the past two seasons with the New York Rangers, collecting 12 points (6G-6A) in 70 regular-season games. He had four points (2G-2A) in 12 playoff games with the Rangers last spring.

The Pittsburgh Penguins got a little bigger on Thursday afternoon. The team announced that they claimed forward Taylor Pyatt off waivers from the New York Rangers. Pyatt, 32, is listed at 6-foot-4 and weighs 235 pounds. He is now one of the tallest players on the roster and is the heaviest player on the Penguins. Pyatt has really struggled this...

A whatev move here. Pyatt has become a bit of a journymen after a promising start to his career. He was never quite the same after this terrible tragedy struck him and his family in 2009. [ HN ]

The Pittsburgh Penguins have claimed forward Taylor Pyatt off of waivers from the New York Rangers. This is an interesting move by the Pens considering that they have been crushed by injuries, and Pyatt has missed significant time with a concussion this season.Go ahead, read the rest »
The Taylor Pyatt era in New York has come to an end. The Pittsburgh Penguins have claimed the winger off waivers, absolving the Rangers of his $1.55 million cap hit and clearing a spot on the 50 man reserve list. Over his 70 games for the Rangers, Pyatt was a pretty big disappointment, putting together a line of 6-6-12 over the season and a half.
Per Larry Brooks, the Rangers have placed forward Taylor Pyatt on waivers. Pyatt has been a big disappointment this season and hasn’t played a game since the December 12 loss to Columbus. Pyatt has just one assist in his 22 games this season, while being a negative Corsi player (42.7% Corsi) with 34.5% offensive zone starts. As Kevin said this morning, it appears that Pyatt’s...
According to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, the New York Rangers have put 32-year-old forward Taylor Pyatt on waivers.
Pyatt, who is in the final year of a two-year, $3.1 million contract with the Rangers, has no goals and one assist in 22 games. He hasn’t played since December 12 against Columbus.
Or Chris Kreider Taylor Pyatt!
Hope you have broken the code by now.
Let's star the New Year right by wishing all of you a prosperous and successful 2014.

Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers have new lines at practice and appear to be dressing 12 forwards and 6 defensemen:
Chris Kreider-Derek Stepan-Rick Nash
Brad Richards-Derick Brassard-Mats Zuccarello
Taylor Pyatt/Benoit Pouliot-Brian Boyle-Arron Asham
Carl Hagelin-Dominic Moore-Derek Dorsett
Ryan McDonagh-Anton Stralman

With the Rangers seemingly in a tail spin and with the injuries mounting it really isn’t time to panic no matter how bleak it may seem at present. That said, changes do need to be made.
The Rangers have an opportunity to insert the likes of JT Miller, Danny Kristo and Dylan McIlrath now and give them consistent ice time...
The Rangers have recalled forward J.T. Miller from the Hartford Wolf Pack. In six games with the Pack this year, Miller has a line of 5-1-6 with 6 PIMs and a +4 rating. Miller has spent most of his time with the Rangers this season, dressing for 15 games and a 1-1-2 line with a -4 rating and 8 PIMs.
With both Taylor Pyatt and Benoit Pouliot struggling, it is expected that Miller...
Per the Rangers Twitter feed, Derek Dorsett will be out tonight with a lingering wrist issue. Taylor Pyatt will return to the lineup in Dorsett’s place. Also, AV noted an unspecified defenseman is banged up and the defensemen will be a game time decision. We can speculate all we want, but we know it isn’t John Moore that is banged up, since AV confirmed he will return tonight...
Per Pat Leonard, it looks like Taylor Pyatt and John Moore will be healthy scratches for the second straight game. AV is a coach that doesn’t like to change things up following a win, so this is relatively unexpected.
Also per Leonard, Cam Talbot will start tonight in net. This will be the first time Talbot starts two straight games. Talbot has not allowed more than two goals in...
In a move that is probably a week late, the Rangers have sent J.T. Miller to the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack. Miller had been a healthy scratch since the 11/17 game against LA, a 1-0 loss. In his time with New York, Miller was placed on the fourth line, rarely given offensive minutes. The reason the Rangers kept him around was as an extra body in case of injury on the road trip.
Per Pat Leonard, injured winger Taylor Pyatt has rejoined the team in Tampa Bay. Pyatt, who was concussed after taking a head shot from Columbus Blue Jackets defender Fedor Tyutin, has not played since that game in Columbus on November 7. Pyatt has been the target of a lot of criticism from the fans for his play this season, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that everyone...
