Fredricks and Weslosky re-sign with Reign

ONTARIO, Calif. – The Ontario Reign, proud affiliate of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, announced the return of defenseman Jason Fredricks and goaltender Jase Weslosky for the 2011-12 season.

Fredricks, 24, was acquired by Ontario in a January 2011 trade with the Utah Grizzlies and immediately established himself as part of the team’s defensive core. The rugged defenseman finished with five points (1g-4a) and 28 penalty minutes in 39 games with the Reign and a season total of eight points (3g-5a) and 32 penalty minutes in 60 games.

The Eagle River, Wisconsin native played four seasons with Colgate University (ECAC) from 2005-2009 before making his professional debut with the Providence Bruins (AHL) in 2009. Fredricks spent the 2009-10 season in South Carolina (ECHL), recording ten points (1g-9a) and 12 penalty minutes in 23 games with the Stingrays.

Weslosky, 22, came to the Reign in March of 2011 through a deal which sent forward Dusty Collins to the Florida Everblades. The late-season addition was 2-1-0 in four appearances with the Reign. Weslosky began the season with the Idaho Steelheads, where he played 20 games before joining Florida on March 1. The Edmonton, Alberta native played a total of 24 games on the season and compiled a 9-7-3 record with a 2.79 goals-against average and a 9.16 save percentage.

Drafted in the fourth round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft (#108 overall) by the New York Islanders, Weslosky played three seasons (2006-2009) with St. Cloud State (WCHA) before going pro, recording a 2.43 GAA, .920 save percentage, and 37-27-4 record in 72 games with the Huskies.
