Reading, Pa. – The Reading Royals, ECHL affiliate of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League and Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League, today announced that the organization has agreed to terms with forward Sean Wiles.
Last year, in 61 regular season games with the Las Vegas Wranglers, Wiles tied for the team lead with 26 goals. The third-year pro from Beloit, Wis. also assisted on 13 others and picked up 46 penalty minutes. In late March, he had a productive first experience in the AHL, scoring a goal in his first AHL game and racking up a total of three points (1g-2a) in three games with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. Wiles returned to the Wranglers for the postseason, where he picked up six points (1g-5a) in seven games.
Wiles began his rookie season of 2011-12 with the Wranglers before joining the Rapid City Rush of the Central Hockey League for 23 games. However, in late January of 2012, Wiles returned to Las Vegas and completed the season there, recording 20 points (11g-9a) in 41 total regular season games with the Wranglers. Wiles went on to play five postseason games with Las Vegas, who advanced to the 2012 Kelly Cup Finals before ultimately being defeated by the Florida Everblades.
Prior to turning pro, Wiles played four years of college hockey at the University of Alaska-Anchorage, where he was selected as the school’s Most Improved player after his junior season. Wiles, who was twice the second leading goal scorer for the Seawolves (junior and senior seasons), registered a total of 48 points (22g-26a) and 79 penalty minutes in 111 college games.
