Two defenseman joining Reign.

The Reign have received defenseman Patrick Mullen from the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs and have been assigned defenseman Colten Teubert by the Kings. Both will be in uniform tonight when the Reign play the Bakersfield Condors tonight (6 p.m., Rabobank Arena).

Teubert was the Kings’ first-round draft pick (13th overall) in 2008 and finished last season with the Reign, notching two assists in 14 games between the regular season and the playoffs. The recently-turned 20-year-old just completed his final season with the Western Hockey League’s Regina Pats.

Mullen, 23, recorded three goals, eight points and 14 penalty minutes in 36 games during his rookie season with the Monarchs.

The 6-foot, 181-pound native of Pittsburgh played four years at the University of Denver. from 2005-09, collecting 81 points (20-61=81) and 148 penalty minutes in 152 games. The Kings signed Mullen two a two-year entry-level contract in April of last year and have been using him exclusively as a defenseman in Manchester after splitting time at forward in college.

Mullen’s father, Joe, played in the NHL for 16 seasons with four different teams (Blues, Flames, Penguins, Bruins). The first American-born hockey player to score 500 goals and register 1,000 points, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2000.

The Web site Hockey’s Future didn’t have much to say about Mullen but rated him a 6.0, and ranked him as the 19th-best prospect in the Kings’ system.
