The rundown on center C.J. Stretch:
2010-11 stats [career]: 9 goals, 21 points, minus-8 rating, 33 penalty minutes in 46 games.
Quote: “Honestly the goal is to play at the next level somewhere. … Whatever team it is at the next level, that’s what team I’ll play on. … If not, I see myself playing for the Reign again.”
Pros: Always among the Reign’s most creative offensive players, Stretch was finally playing regular minutes, scoring consistently, and defending reasonably well by the end of the season. The Irvine native also single-handedly brought at least a dozen patrons to the stands at every home game.
Cons: Stretch is not particularly big (5-11, 195) or fast, and didn’t finish scoring chances nearly as well as he created them. More frustrating was his defense; Stretch must prove he can be more than just a power-play specialist.
