ONTARIO, Calif. – The Ontario Reign, proud affiliate of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, announced the signing of rookie defenseman Adrian Van de Mosselaer for the 2011-12 season.

Van de Mosselaer, 20, played four seasons of junior hockey with the Edmonton Oil Kings (WHL). He recorded 22 points (7g-15a) and 137 penalty minutes in his final year, with 55 points (15g-40a) and 325 penalty minutes in 218 career games.
