Schulz and Taylor’s rights were previously obtained from the former Texas Wildcatters. Per Club policy, the terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Andrew Martens, 27, skates onto the Reign roster after spending his last two professional seasons (2005-07) with the Chiefs. The Friendswood, TX native played in 142 regular season games with the club and was the only player on their roster to compete in all 72 regular season and 8 playoff games during 2007-08.

As a Chief, Martens registered 15 goals, assisted on 53 others (68 points) and tallied 123 penalty minutes. During the 2006-07 season he led the team’s defensemen in points (30 points, 6 goals) and was tied for second overall with 24 assists for the year.

The 6-foot 1-inch, 205-lb defenseman, began his professional career in 2005-06 participating in five games and posting one assist with the former ECHL Greenville Grrrowl. Prior to the Grrrowl, Martens completed his college career with Bemidji State University in Bemidji, MN. He skated in 101 games from 2003-06, accumulating 11 goals and 29 assists (40 points) while with the Beavers.
