Miners Sign Taylor Urch from Anaheim

The Kirkland Lake GoldMiners are thrilled to announce the signing of ’97 born forward Taylor Urch. Taylor played with the highly regarded Anaheim Jr Ducks U18 program last season, who were the California AAA U18 State Champions.


The 5’10’ 160 lb, right handed shooting, Anaheim, California native, will bring lots of speed & creativity to the Miners offense. Coach Lafleur, “Taylor is a highly skilled young man, looking to make his mark in the NOJHL.”

During the last nine years, Urch has helped his teams win or tie 72 percent of their games, including winning two California state championships, a USA Hockey Pacific District AAA championship, a high school championship with Villa Park High School, participating in a U.S. National Skills Competition and playing in the USA Hockey Youth Nationals twice. “I am excited to come to Kirkland Lake and play for coach Marc Lafleur and the Gold Miners,” said Urch. “They have an excellent program and I look forward to helping the team bring home the NOJHL championship trophy to Kirkland Lake again this season.”
