No Dylan Hunter, and other notes.

Reign coach Karl Taylor said through a team spokesperson that Monday’s ECHL transactions report erroneously showed the Reign signing a defenseman named Dylan Hunter. A forward by the same name, the son of former NHL player Dale Hunter, is under contract to the ECHL’s Cincinnati Cyclones. Hockeydb.com has no record of any defensemen named Dylan Hunter, so we’re guessing the ECHL goofed.

Also Monday, left wing James McEwan was placed on 3-day injured reserve while center C.J. Stretch was transferred to 7-day injured reserve and defenseman Eric Doyle (upper-body) was transferred to 21-day injured reserve.

No word yet as to whether defenseman Doug Krantz will be joining the team in Victoria, where the Reign will play Tim Kraus and the Victoria Salmon Kings in back-to-back games Tuesday and Wednesday.

More from Kraus in tomorrow’s editions of the Sun and Daily Bulletin.

    Oh? So now it’s Tim Kraus and the Victoria Salmon Kings? Like he’s the main attraction of the team? Just wait until Victoria is healthy again. Tim will be looking for a new home. Right next to the deep fryer wearing a paper hat.

    But why would that be Hockey Fan? Have you talked to the Vic coach? He is very pleased with the play of Tim. Look elsewhere to bash…yes we know who you are.

    I’m aware of Darren and I feel bad for him. It’s hard without seeing the games to know how a defensive-minded defenseman is doing over the course of one week because he doesn’t put up a lot of points. Next time he has more than one point in a week, he’s getting in.
