History

2006-07: Played for coach Jim Salfi and the Capital District Selects of the EJHL. The team struggled while Darling split time with Chance Lieb. He managed to put up a 9-9-3 record, a 3.37 goals-against average and led the league with a .927 save percentage.

2007-08: Played for the Indiana Ice in the USHL. Became the starter and helped backstop the Ice to the top of the east division with a 35-19-6 record. Darling finished the regular season with a 27-10-2 record, while posting a 3.04 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage. He earned goaltender of the week honors on Nov. 12, Jan. 21, and Feb. 4 for his strong play. 

2008-09: In 27 starts for the University of Maine Darling posted a 10-14-3 record, 2.76 GAA, a .895 save percentage, and 3 shutouts.

2009-10: In his sophomore season with U of Maine, he posted a 15-6-3 record, 3.10 GAA, and a .895 save percentage.

Talent Analysis

A huge goalie standing 6’6, Darling uses his size and athleticism to cover a large portion of the net. Struggles with his rebound control and needs to do a better job of battling in the crease.

Future

 

After a forgettable season in the SPHL, Darling’s pro career seems destined to continue in the low minor-leagues and he is likely not in the Coyotes plans moving forward.

The Nylander family is in the news lately, and the youngest family member, Alex, just scored one of the prettiest goals of the year. Another family, the Strome’s, are making waves themselves, but again it’s youngest brother Matt that started the year off hot. There’s more, too, as top prospects in Tampa Bay and Winnipeg push for playing time just like the world-famous Hanson Brothers did. Read more»
