Spooner, Johnston return to Reign.

Center Denny Johnston and left wing Doug Spooner are returning to the Reign in 2009-10.

Johnston split last season between the Reign and the Kings’ AHL affiliate in Manchester, N.H. He notched five goals and nine points in 20 regular-season games in Ontario, where he was used as a shut-down center and penalty-kill specialist. He also appeared in all seven postseason games, posting one assist.

Spooner had one goal in seven games after joining the Reign straight from the University of Waterloo at midseason. He joined first on an amateur tryout contract, then was re-signed and occasionally flashed the power forward-type game that was his trademark in college. The Scarborough, Ontario native spent five seasons with the Warriors, appearing in 129 regular season games and registering 62 goals, 118 points and 154 penalty minutes.

The Reign have announced 14 players under contract for next season: Johnston, Spooner, Todd Jackson, Dan Leslie, Jon Rheault, Robert Pearce, Brian Matte, Tyler Mugford, Tim Kraus, Jon Francisco and Geoff Walker at forward; and defensemen Chad Starling, David Walker and Brian Kilburg.
