Royals Agree to Terms with Forward Cam Reid

Reading, PA – The Reading Royals of the ECHL, affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with forward Cam Reid. Reid is the second player announced as signed by the Royals to an ECHL Standard Players Contract for the 2015-16 season along with defensemen Jordan Heywood.

Last season, Reid (6’3/207) (23), who hails from Tsawwassen, Delta, British Columbia, racked up a career high fifty-nine points (25g-34a) and played plus-11 (+11) in fifty-nine games with the Royals, placing him fourth in scoring on the team. His point-a-game average led the Royals, and his twenty-five 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. Six of Reid’s goals were the ‘first goal’ of the particular game in which they were scored, which led the team. His seven game winners placed him second on the team in that category.

Reid, who was selected to represent Reading at the 2015 CCM/ ECHL All-Star Classic in Orlando last January, put together the longest point streak of the season for the Royals, racking up at least one point in eleven consecutive games (6g-8a=14pts) from October 24 through November 21, 2014. He also tied with Brett Flemming and Kevin Walrod with the longest goal scoring streak of the year for the team, when he scored a goal in four straight games from February 13 through March 1, 2015. Reid, who was second on the team with seventeen multi-point games, racked up a hattrick for Reading when he bagged three goals and an assist in a 7-2 win over the Evansville Icemen on January 28. He went two for six in the shootout this season for the Royals, with one of his two shootout goals proving to be the decisive game winner on November 14, 2014 against the Kalamazoo Wings.

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 twelve games (0g-2a) with the Adirondack Flames from March 20 through the conclusion of the AHL regular season when he rejoined the Royals in time for Game Three of the team’s first round East Division Semi-Final playoff series against the South Carolina Stingrays. Reid proceeded to rack up six points (3g-3a) in five playoff games for Reading, which included picking up a pair of multi-point games for the Royals in playoffs, including a three assist performance in the team’s 4-2 win in Game Four. Reid also scored a pair of goals in the 6-1 win in Game Six. His three post-season goals came on just ten total shots for a 30.0% shooting percentage.

Reid, who was a member of the 2013-14 Denver Cutthroat team that advanced to the Central Hockey League playoff finals, has registered a total of 116 points (41g-75a) in 188 games over three seasons of pro. Eighty-two of those games have been played in the AHL (6g-20a), including 54 in his rookie season (2012-13) with the Milwaukee Admirals.

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 twenty-nine points (8g-21a) in thirty-seven games with the Huskies. But 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 thirty-two points (13g-19a) in thirty-one regular season games. In the post-season, the Winterhawks advanced all the way to the WHL finals before being knocked off in an epic seven game battle with the Edmonton Oil Kings.
