As reported elsewhere today, the Ducks signed ex-King Kyle Calder and assigned him to Bakersfield, where the Reign (2-2) are headed for a game at 7 p.m. tonight against the Condors (3-2). No word yet on whether or not Calder will be in the lineup.
Some more notes:
- The Reign lead the league on the power play at 44.4 percent (8-for-18).
- Ontario’s Greg Hogeboom has four goals and six points in his last three games.
- Bakersfield rookie defenseman Stu Bickel had a career-high two assists on Saturday at Victoria.
- Condors left wing Dan Sexton is second among ECHL rookies with seven points (3g-4a).
- According to the Bakersfield Californian, the Condors will roll out some different lines than the Reign saw during their opening weekend.
- The Reign won’t have to face goaltender Justin Pogge, who shut them out on opening night. He’s in Anaheim while Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere rehabs a strained groin, while Timo Pielmeier gets the start in net. Pielmeier allowed seven goals on 19 Reign shots in the Reign’s 8-2 win Oct. 17
