Ice hockey goalie Cameron Talbot is a Canadian professional (born July 5, 1987). He is presently a player with the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League. Talbot played hockey all four years he attended the University of Alabama in Huntsville. He was chosen for the All-College Hockey America Second Team in the 2009–10 season, took home the MVP honours in the CHA Tournament, and assisted the Chargers in making the NCAA Tournament. On March 30, 2010, Talbot was purchased by the New York Rangers. He played with the Connecticut Whale for the majority of the 2010–11 AHL season (he also participated in two ECHL games with the Greenville Road Warriors).On February 28, 2011, he was promoted to the Rangers. On March 3, 2011, he was sent back to the Whale.
After Connecticut was ousted from the AHL playoffs, Talbot was promoted to the Rangers’ postseason roster. He spent the 2011–12 season with Connecticut. He was once more included on the Rangers’ postseason roster during the 2012–2013 Whale season. On October 15, 2013, Talbot was called up once more by the Rangers, becoming the backup to Henrik Lundqvist for the first time when Martin Biron was sent to the AHL. On October 24, he made his NHL debut on the ice against the Philadelphia Flyers, losing 2-1. He won his first NHL game against the Detroit Red Wings on October 26, 2013. He beat the Montreal Canadiens on November 16, 2013, earning his first NHL shutout in the process.Talbot replaced Lundqvist twice during the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs as the Rangers went on to win the Eastern Conference.
Is Cam Talbot Married?
Cam Talbot and Kelly Talbot were hitched. The Cam Talbot and Kelly marriage would make a great 2012 movie. They still seem to be deeply in love and aren’t hesitant to offer one other support and affection after ten years of marriage and two kids. Kelly was reared in Michigan before relocating to Texas, and it seemed only logical that she would be familiar with the sport given that both her father and brother were also hockey players. The two met first through Kelly’s brother, a friend and teammate of Cam’s. According to YEG FITNESS, Kelly was employed in the hospitality sector at the time, while Cam was a student at the University of Alabama-Huntsville. He played professionally for Kelly’s brother Kelly’s hockey team. The couple seldom saw one other because of their busy schedules. Kelly, however, made sure to take as much time as possible when travelling to see Cam. Their perseverance and commitment to one another paid off when they exchanged vows in 2012, and they have been together ever since.
On June 27, 2015, Talbot was traded by the Rangers to the Edmonton Oilers for three picks in the upcoming NHL Entry Draft. Talbot competed with Anders Nilsson for Edmonton’s primary goaltender spot in his debut season with the Oilers. On January 17, 2016, Talbot and the Oilers reached an agreement on a three-year, $12 million contract. Up until Nilsson was eventually traded to the St. Louis Blues, Cam Talbot was Edmonton’s starting goaltender. Grant Fuhr had 40 victories when Talbot passed him on April 6, 2017, setting an Oilers record for the most victories in a season with 41.
