True North Sports & Entertainment and the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club, along with their American Hockey League affiliate the St. John’s IceCaps, are pleased to announce a new partnership with the Ontario Reign as their ECHL affiliate for the 2013-14 season.

“We are pleased to embark on our new partnership with the Ontario Reign,” said Craig Heisinger, Senior Vice President & Director of Hockey Operations/Assistant General Manager of the Winnipeg Jets. “Ontario is an organization that shares our level of commitment to success and we look forward to working together to provide our players’ opportunities to further develop themselves on and off the ice.”

The Ontario Reign opened their inaugural season on October 18, 2008, where they earned their first-ever win with a 2-1 victory over the Bakersfield Condors. The Reign finished the 2012-13 season ranked first in the Pacific Division with a 46-19-3-4 record and 99 points. After sweeping the Utah Grizzlies in the first round of the Kelly Cup playoffs, the Reign fell to the Idaho Steelheads in the second round, 4-2. The 2012-13 season marked the third time Ontario clinched their division, the first in 2008-09 (38-29-4-2) and again in 2011-12 (43-21-5-3).

Current Head Coach Jason Christie, joined the Reign in August 2011, as did current Assistant Coach Mark Hardy, formerly of the Los Angeles Kings. Christie played 88 games with the Manitoba Moose over two seasons (1996-97 & 1997-98) where he earned 43 points (16G, 27A) with the club. He also spent two seasons as an Assistant Coach with the Chicago Wolves, spending the 2008-09 season working under then General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff.

“We’re very excited about adding the Winnipeg Jets organization as a Reign affiliate and believe it will help to further solidify us as a top contender for the Kelly Cup,” said Justin Kemp, President of the Ontario Reign. “They carry a deep roster of young talent that will be given a great opportunity to develop in a competitive and professional environment here in Ontario.”
