The Reign submitted their protected list to the ECHL this week, a list of 31 players whose rights are retained for the time being:
Beau Erickson, Jase Weslosky, Shane Connelly, Kellen Briggs, Curtis Darling, Pat Bowen, Jason Fredricks, Luke Beaverson, David Walker, Craig Gaudet, Doug Krantz, Shawn Germain, Chad Starling, Jordan Hill, Matt Delahey, Lane Caffaro, Aaron Lewadniuk, Jordan Morrison, Kyle Kraemer, Justin Taylor, C.J. Stretch, Alex Bourret, Brett O’Malley, Shawn Collymore, James McEwan, Jon Francisco, Chaz Johnson, Jeff Corey, Greg Hogeboom, Jon Rheault and Peter Lenes.
Karl Taylor said Wednesday that the list doesn’t mean much — Darling is retired, Lenes played all of last season in Austria while Briggs, Caffaro and Corey left the team at midseason. The list has to be narrowed down in the coming weeks and it will mean a little more each time.
The conditions for inclusion, as well as every team’s protected list, can be found here.
