Krantz fined, suspended for tonight’s game.

The Reign will be without defenseman Doug Krantz for tonight’s game against the Alaska Aces. The ECHL suspended Krantz for one game and fined him an undisclosed amount as a result of his  kneeing major and game misconduct in the third period of Wednesday’s game against the Victoria Salmon Kings.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the ECHL and the Professional Hockey Players’ Association, player fines collected by the ECHL are given to the PHPA for its ECHL Player’s Hardship Fund.

Krantz has no points and a minus-3 rating in two games with the Reign since he was acquired from the Toledo Walleye on Dec. 26.
