Darren Reid has an impressive resume.
The former Philadelphia Flyer and Tampa Bay Lightning forward is back in Alberta (originally from Lac la Biche) and is eager to help the Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs.
Reid comes into the league as a two-time Calder Cup winner, Western Hockey League champion and has recording 104 points in 259 American Hockey League games.
"I'm not trying to get too excited or get myself worked up, but just keep it simple, get in to the scoring lanes and the open ice," said Reid.
The big, physical forward will be tested on the 5th placed Chiefs, but with linemates of Jamie Marshall and Brett Holmberg, he seems to be fitting in just fine.
"The guys all have work ethic, we don't give up. I like the energy, it keeps us going for 60 minutes."
Next chance to see Reid and the Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs will be Saturday (December 9) when they welcome the Stony Plain Eagles to the JRC. Puck drop is 8:00 p.m.
