Reign bring back Cameron Burt

Just in from the Reign:

“The Ontario Reign announced today that Cameron Burt is back with the Reign for the third time.

“I’m really looking forward to playing in Ontario and taking another run at the Kelly Cup Championship with a strong team,” Burt said.

Burt, 26, made his professional debut with Ontario at the end of 2011-12 and returned for his full rookie campaign in 2012-13. The Detroit, MI native, a natural forward, stepped up and played defense last year, a position he had little experience in, only 30 games as a junior. Burt not only held his own at the blue line, but was a standout as the highest scoring defenseman for the Reign and second highest scoring rookie defenseman in the ECHL.

The 5-foot-10, 170-pound skater earned 38 points (2g, 36a) in 61 games and finished the season with a plus-minus rating of +18. His impressive performance in 2012-13 earned Burt a spot on the All-ECHL Rookie team.

“Looking at this next season, I want to improve the physical side of my game and gain more experience playing with the veteran players that are on the team,” Burt said.
