Reading Royals Sign Former Player


Last Hockey Season

Today the Reading Royals announced that they have signed Forward, Kirk MacDonald. I, personally, was wondering about this signing because last week a youtube video came out from the Royals announcing the signing and then was taken down with no formal announcement.

MacDonald previously had been with the Royals during the 2008 - 2009 season during which he was called up to the Providence Bruins of the AHL, who had been the Royals' affiliate at the time. Kirk has been in the AHL ever since which makes me wonder what happened that he is back in the ECHL, although I'm not complaining as I'm happy to have him back.

The team also announced their training camp rosters which now includes MacDonald. The Royals also have added a few players who have been granted tryouts.

Given that we are departing for Disney on Wednesday, we will not have a chance to attend any of the training camp sessions nor the pre-season game but will be back in time for the full-season ticket holder party. We plan on taking pictures and providing a report. Stay tuned!
