Royals Re-Sign Forward Andrew Ammon

Reading, PA – The Reading Royals of the ECHL, affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL, today announced that the team has re-signed forward Andrew Ammon to an ECHL Standard Players Contract. In a separate transaction, the Royals also signed Nick Niedert as the team’s emergency back-up goaltender.

This is the second stint with the Royals for Ammon (6’0/191) (25), a second year pro who hails from Anchorage, Alaska. He was originally signed by the team on December 30, 2015, and picked up two penalty minutes in three games prior to being released on January 8.
