For the third straight week, the AHL’s best rivalry takes center stage, as the Ontario Reign meet up with the San Diego Gulls in Irvine.
For the most part, the Kings top affiliate will ice a lineup similar to what they went with last night at home vs. the Bakersfield Condors. In that game, Matt Luff had a pair of goals and led all skaters with seven shots on goal.
Highlights from game can be seen below:
As we noted on Tuesday, newly signed forward Adam Johnson is expected to make his Reign debut vs. San Diego. He will be wearing jersey No. 49.
Ontario Reign have added another veteran forward. They've signed 26 yr old center Adam Johnson.
He played w/ Alex Iafallo at UMD and earlier this yr was teammates w/ LA Kings prospect Helge Grans in Sweden (Malmo Redhawks).
Last few yrs, was w/ AHL Wilkes-Barre. Has 13 NHL GP.
