Dylan Reese (2) Portland Pirates


Arizona Coyotes‘ 8th year veteran defenseman Dylan Reese(2) keeps his streak of appearances in the show alive.

Recalled on only one occasion he skated his game, keeping the streak going of 5 straight seasons of NHL games.

All but three of his 78 appearances were with New York Islanders from 2009-2012 and those were with the one year he was signed by Pittsburgh Penguins.

The not huge, not exactly small 6′ 201 lbs. blue liner decided to go way overseas for 2013/2014 and joined Amur Khabarovsk of the KHL but seemed like it maybe didn’t work out all too well. He only had 2 goals and 5 assists in 45 games.

He was signed on the first of free agency to a one-year two-way deal by the Coyotes and is putting in a career year with minor league affiliate Portland Pirates.

Early in his career he was in their 2008 training camp, played in preseason games and skated his first two years with then farm team San Antonio Rampage, but this is the first time under contract.

In 69 games he has a career high 10 goals and tying 27 assists and best 37 points with a +9 rating.

With 395 AHL games to his credit, it will be interesting to see where the 30-year old goes next, especially with this uptick of offense ignition.
