The Ontario Reign, back-to-back Pacific Division Champions and proud affiliate of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings and Winnipeg Jets, have announced that forward Mario Lamoureux has been called up to the AHL’s Oklahoma City Barons on a professional tryout agreement.

In just four games, Lamoureux, 25, has scored three goals and has a plus-minus rating of +2.  In his rookie year last season, the Grand Forks, ND native finished as the leading rookie scorer with 65 points (25g, 40a) and had a team-high +30.  Lamoureux was named to the ECHL All-Rookie squad at the end of the 2013-14 season and missed just one game in the 72-game season.

Prior to the Reign, Lamoureux played for the Fighting Sioux of North Dakota University for four years where he racked up 46 points (17g, 29a) in 148 appearances.  As a junior, the 5-foot-8 forward skated with the Tri-City Storm of the USHL for four seasons.  In 236 games he recorded 129 points (44g, 85a) and 454 penalty minutes.


A West Coast girl, born and raised in the Bay Area in the most non-traditional Hockey Market you could imagine for a long time... When the Sharks came to town it changed the Bay Area hockey landscape forever. Her first love will always be the Red Wings but she has embraced the Sharks since their debut in 1991. She has a passion for minor league grind-it-out-in the-corners hockey. Her heart broke when the ECHL Bulls folded , but luckily the Stockton Thunder are still close enough for her to get her gritty-hockey fix. Besides watching hockey, she is an American Tribal Style belly-dancer and trolls the blue-line, playing defence in a local rec hockey league... A somehow strange but balanced juxtaposition.
