Royals re-sign 2015 All-Star Reid


Reading, Pa. – The Reading Royals, ECHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL, announced that the team has agreed to terms with forward Cam Reid.

Last season, Reid, who hails from Tsawwassen, British Columbia, racked up a career high 59 points (25g-34a) and was a +11 in 59 games with the Royals, placing him fourth in scoring on the team. His point-a-game average led the Royals, and his 25 goals were second most on the team. Reid, who was selected as the team’s Most Valuable Player at the conclusion of the regular season, scored his goals on just 151 total shots which translated into a team-leading 16.6% shooting percentage. Reid was selected to represent Reading at the 2015 CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic in Orlando in January.

Reid also had two stints last season in the AHL last year, playing two games (and scoring a goal) with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in late February and playing 12 games (0g-2a) with the Adirondack Flames from March 20 through the conclusion of the AHL regular season when he rejoined the Royals for the Kelly Cup Playoffs.

Reid has registered a total of 116 points (41g-75a) in 188 games over three seasons of pro hockey with 82 of those games in the AHL where he has recorded 26 points (6g-20a).

Prior to turning pro, Reid, a seventh round pick of the Nashville Predators in 2009, played a season-and-a-half at St. Cloud State University. In his freshman year, Reid was third on the team in scoring with 29 points (8g-21a) in 37 games with the Huskies. In January of his sophomore season, Reid elected to leave school and join the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League. While with Portland, Reid registered 32 points (13g-19a) in 31 regular-season games. In the post-season, the Winterhawks advanced all the way to the WHL finals before being knocked off in seven games by the Edmonton Oil Kings.
