Reich, who was signed by the Bruins as a free agent on August 30, 2005, was recalled by Boston yesterday and played in the club’s 4-3 overtime win over the Carolina Hurricanes last night in Raleigh, NC. This season Reich has played 45 games, and tallied four goals and seven assists for the Providence Bruins.
Reich, 27, from Craik Saskatchewan, was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in the second round (39th overall) in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. He signed with Columbus as a free agent on May 17, 2000 and saw his only NHL action when he played nine games for the Blue Jackets during the 2003-2004 season. During that stretch in the NHL, Reich had one assist.
