Reign defenseman Jon Landry has been suspended by the team.
Acquired Nov. 4 from the Cincinnati Cyclones in exchange for winger Adam Henrich, Landry had three goals and six points in 18 games with the Reign — including one in his first game in a Reign uniform on Nov. 6. He did not play in Saturday’s 4-2 loss to the Las Vegas Wranglers.
Possessing a hard shot and good puck skills, Landry had alternated in at forward recently while the Reign were depleted by injuries and AHL recalls. However, Landry had just one goal and no assists in his last 10 games.
Update, 9:36 p.m.: Here’s what Karl Taylor had to say after tonight’s game: “He (Landry) wasn’t happy with how things were going and neither were we. I didn’t think he played — he decided he wasn’t going to play the way I wanted him to consistently, so we cut back his ice and he’s requested a trade. We’re doing the best we can to accommodate him but hopefully also help our team, too.”
