Reign make a trade.

The Reign may have landed their best offensive threat: Preston Callander comes to the Reign from the Florida Everblades, for whom he scored 57 points in 47 games last season. According to his stats on, Callander has been playing in Finland already this season. No word yet on how this affects his prospects to be in Ontario come October.

Callander was acquired in exchange for the rights to Michael Grenzy, a former Texas Wildcatter (the franchise that sorta folded and became the Reign).

Update @6 p.m.: It’s a rights-for-rights trade and Callander might not report. He’s in Finland on a tryout.
