Reign: Taylor passed on European players.

A somewhat obscure ECHL deadline passed under the radar a week ago today, the final day teams could add players playing overseas to their roster for the rest of the regular season and playoffs. Karl Taylor said today that he had taken a look at players currently in Europe, but “timing and deadlines” prevented any from signing with the Reign.

“You’ve got to sign them three weeks prior to the deadline because you’ve got to do immigration on them,” Taylor said. “Same if they’re Canadian, you’ve got to do immigration on them. On that day, they have to be immigration compliant, have a visa, be here. It takes a lot.”
