Reign add Baudry on ATO - LA Kings Insider

The Ontario Reign made a roster move this afternoon, adding defenseman Justin Baudry on an ATO. The 5-11 blueliner recently completed his collegiate career at Bemidji State with the Beavers, where he was teammates for three seasons with current Ontario forward Kyle Bauman, who also began his Reign career on an ATO. Baudry ranks fifth all-time in games played by a Bemidji blueliner and led the Beavers in scoring this past season with 31 points (9-22-31).

The move to add a blueliner was expected, with Ontario having only six healthy defensemen on the roster following Kale Clague breaking a bone in his foot on Friday in Tucson. Baudry took warmups tonight but will not dress for tonight’s game. The blueliner is expected to wear #6 with the Reign, last worn by now Kings defenseman Paul LaDue.
