The rundown on center/left wing Shawn Collymore:
2010-11 stats [career]: 17 goals, 38 points, 36 penalty minutes, -28 rating in 62 games.
Quote: “I’m trying to go to Europe. Hopefully I have an opportunity there. If ever I were to come back and play in the ECHL, this organization is a good one to play for. I’d definitely come back.”
Pros: Collymore only seemed to get better as he took on more responsibility in 2010-11, including moving from center to left wing. His speed stood out among the Reign’s forward corps and helped make him an effective two-way player. He was another calming veteran presence in a young room.
Cons: Collymore was a point-per-game player the last time he was in the ECHL (’07-08) but not this season, save a 10-game stretch in February before he suffered an ankle injury. Was 2010-11 a fluke, or is he starting to decline at age 28?
