Tim Kraus signs with Victoria Salmon Kings.

Former Reign forward Tim Kraus is joining the Victoria Salmon Kings.

An original member of the inaugural Reign squad, Kraus is no stranger to British Columbia. He spent four years playing for the nearby Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League and has often referred to the area as his “second home.” That made Kraus’ choice a bit easier; he said he also had an offer from the ECHL’s Kalamazoo Wings.

“I love Vancouver,” he said. “I still have plenty of family and friends up there.”

Kraus, who was placed on waivers Friday, had no goals and six assists in 16 games this season for the Reign. He’ll get two quick chances to face his former team on Dec. 28 and 29 in Victoria, but the two teams don’t meet again the rest of the season.

The Salmon Kings (10-12-1-2) visit the Idaho Steelheads on Wednesday and Friday.
