</div></div> Cameron Talbot (born July 5, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender. He is currently playing with the New York Rangers in the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Talbot played college hockey at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.[1] In the 2009–10 season, he was named to the All-College Hockey America Second Team and was named Most Valuable Player in the CHA Tournament, while leading the Chargers to a berth in the NCAA Tournament.[2]

On March 30, 2010, the New York Rangers signed Talbot as a free agent.[3] He was promoted to the Rangers on February 28, 2011 after playing most of the 2010–11 season with the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (he also played two ECHL games with the Greenville Road Warriors)[4] and was returned to the Whale on March 3, 2011.[5][6]

He played the 2011–12 season with Connecticut, but after Connecticut was eliminated from the AHL playoffs, Talbot was added to the Rangers' playoff roster.[7] After the 2012–13 Whale season, he was again added to the Rangers' playoff roster.[8] Talbot was again called up to the Rangers on October 15, 2013, after Martin Biron was demoted to the AHL, finding himself a full-time NHL goaltender for the first time, as the backup to Henrik Lundqvist.[9] He made his on-ice NHL debut on October 24 in a 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.[10][11] His first NHL win came in his next game against the Detroit Red Wings on October 26, 2013,[12][13] and he earned his first NHL shutout against the Montreal Canadiens on November 16, 2013.[14] In the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Talbot twice entered to relieve Lundqvist as the Rangers went on to win the Eastern Conference.[15]
