Setoguchi Suspended by Reign
ONTARIO, Calif. - The Ontario Reign, defending Pacific Division Champions and proud affiliate of the NHL's 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings, have announced that right winger, Devin Setoguchi, has been suspended by the team. The Reign hold his ECHL rights allowing him the opportunity to return to the team at a later date.
Setoguchi, 25, was the first current NHLer to join the Reign this season and played a total of 10 games with Ontario; he earned 13 points (4g, 9a) during his time with the team. The Taber, Alberta native signed with the Reign on November 6 and played in his first game on November 7 where he earned two assists and was named the First Star of the night.
The five-year NHL veteran is currently on contract with the Minnesota Wild where he played during the 2011-12 season and ranked fourth on the team with 36 points (19g, 17a). Prior to the Wild, Setoguchi played with the San Jose Sharks, where he was first drafted eighth overall in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, over a four-season span racking up 159 points (84g, 75a) in 267 games.
