Welcome New LAKI Contributor, Jared Shafran

Insiders, introducing you to the newest contributor here on LA Kings Insider, Jared Shafran!

Jared will be the primary source of coverage of the top prospects in the organization playing in the AHL, highlighting them here on LAKI. Jared follows Lindsay Czarnecki, Joey Zakrzewski and Zach Dooley, who have covered the Reign here on LAKI since the Kings moved their primary affiliate to California in 2015.

A note from Jared below –

Hey Reign fans,

Jared Shafran here, introducing myself as the newest contributor to LA Kings Insider! I’ll focus on the Ontario Reign while also serving as the team’s Manager of Communications and Content! I’m very excited to join the Insider team and provide day-to-day coverage of the Reign from all angles.

While I’m new to the AHL and Southern California, I’ve been working in hockey for the past decade, most recently spending the last five seasons in the ECHL with the South Carolina Stingrays. I’m originally from the state of New York, but I hope you won’t hold that against me as I get acclimated to the pacific.

As I take the reigns (pun intended), I’ll continue to provide many of the same insights you’ve come to know and love from Zach Dooley and I’m looking forward to interacting with all of you, hopefully soon in person, but virtually as well. You’ll also be hearing my voice on the Reign Check podcast, broadcasts, and other audio and video content. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions for something you’d like to see, you can always find me on Twitter so feel free to reach out!

A new season is just around the corner and there’s a lot to be excited about with this team. See you around the rink!

-Jared Shafran

Jared, along with Jack Jablonski, will provide coverage of LA Kings Development Camp over the next week here on LAKI. You can follow Jared’s Ontario Reign account HERE.
