Reign sign Morrison and Beaverson.

Jordan Morrison and Luke Beaverson are former NHL draft picks and college standouts with AHL experience, who are coming off less-than-desirable seasons.

Other than that, the two have little in common — except that they’ve signed with the Reign for 2010-11.

Morrison, 24, is a versatile 6-foot, 170-pound forward who was the runner-up for the ECHL’s Rookie of the Year award in 2009 with the Wheeling Nailers. That season, he was better than a point-per-game player, with 26 goals and 74 points in 63 games. He split last season between the ECHL’s Florida Everblades, Johnstown Chiefs and Wheeling, dipping to 11 goals and 32 points in 65 games.

Beaverson, 25, is a 6-foot-4, 225-pound stay-at-home defenseman. He spent the last three seasons in the system of the Florida Panthers, who drafted him in the ninth round (283rd overall) in 2004. Only 28 of his 78 pro games have been spent in the ECHL; the rest came in the AHL, but only 29 came last season, when Beaverson’s playing time with the Rochester Americans was cut short by injury.

More details in tomorrow’s editions of the Sun and Bulletin.
