The Kings have given him at least one, whether it was Yutaka Fukufuji, Danny Taylor, Jonathan Quick, Jeff Zatkoff or Linden Rowat.
The coach is not asking for a goalie right now, with Mike Zacharias and Curtis Darling in camp and ready to start the season as the Reign's tandem.
But Taylor is left to wonder if this is the first year he isn't getting a netminder from the parent club.
"Unless they sign someone, it's not going to happen," he said.
On paper, getting a goalie from the Kings doesn't mean much. But on a practical level, Taylor said, "You don't have the security of having a goalie that can only go to one (American Hockey League) team. Both our goalies can go to 30 American League teams, so that's a little more concerning."
So who are the Reign's masked men?
In some ways, Darling and Zacharias could not be more opposite. The 26-year-old Darling has the height (6-foot-2) and experience, including a pair of relief appearances in the AHL sprinkled among two full ECHL seasons.
Zacharias is younger (24) and smaller (5-10), but comes with strong credentials out of Minnesota State-Mankato. Over a three-year career that ended last March, he became the school's all-time record holder in goals-against average (2.71) and saves percentage
In Ontario, both share the same goals: To play as much as possible, and to play as well as possible to earn an AHL call-up.
"All you can do is try to win games for your team," Zacharias said. "That's all I'm looking for; the numbers will come if you win games. Then get a chance to get called up every once in a while."
Zacharias got a brief taste of the AHL level, too, in training camp with the Manchester Monarchs in September. He came on in relief of Zatkoff during a 5-1 loss to the Portland Pirates, but was responsible for only one of the goals, which happened to come on a power play.
His stat line was good - not good enough to defy the odds of making the opening-day roster once Jonathan Bernier was sent down from the NHL camp - but possibly good enough to get a call-back in case of an injury or trade.
"Hopefully, I showcased what I can do for them and get a chance with them some time," Zacharias said.
Darling is in a similar situation to that of John Murray a year ago, a late signee who had familiarity with Taylor, and some experience at the ECHL level. Last season with the Wheeling Nailers, Darling posted a 21-20-6 record, 3.46 goals-against average and .897 saves percentage in 49 games.
He also played 32 minutes in a game for Manchester, stopping all 12 shots he faced.
"I had some ups and downs. I'd like to be more consistent," Darling said. "That's a learning process. It was my first full year as a starter. It's good to just play, play a lot and get all the kinks out."
He had experience playing for Taylor with the Reading Royals in 2006-07, and before that at the University of Waterloo. He also counts Jon Francisco, Shawn Germain and Doug Spooner as former teammates.
But this is his first experience playing on the West Coast.
"It's a big move but a nice move," he said. "One I'm more than happy to make."
