The Reign have traded forward Adam Henrich to the Cincinnati Cyclones for defenseman Jon Landry.
Landry, 25, began the season with the American Hockey League’s Rochester Americans, but appeared in just one game before he was released. In six games for Cincinnati, Landry collected one assist and 13 penalty minutes.
The 6-foot-2 defenseman split last season between Johnstown (ECHL) and Syracuse (AHL). Landry began his career the year before in Elmira (ECHL) but played just 18 games, his season cut short when the team bus crashed in Nov. 2007 returning from a game in Cincinnati. A native of Lexington, Mass., Landry played four seasons at Holy Cross College from 2003-07.
Cyclones head coach Chuck Weber recently described Landry as an “offensive defenseman.”
Henrich was enjoying a good season with the Reign. He’s scored five goals, including a league-leading four on the power play, and nine points in eight games. The nine points were tied for second on the team.
No word yet on whether or not the trade is related to the return of Geoff Walker, for whom the Reign could need to make roster and/or payroll space.
Walker, by the way, is listed as number 36 on the Reign roster. Dwight King is wearing the #8 jersey worn by Walker last season.
