ONTARIO REIGN ANNOUNCE BROADCAST UPDATES
ONTARIO, CA – The Ontario Reign, proud AHL affiliate of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, have announced updates to the team’s broadcast plans for the remainder of the 2020-21 season. Ontario will utilize several broadcasters throughout the course of the 2020-21 AHL season, including Foster Hewitt Award winner Nick Nickson, who will call six Reign home games. Nickson, in his 40th NHL season with the Kings, returns to the AHL for the first time since 1982, when he was the voice of the New Haven Nighthawks, then the Kings’ primary developmental affiliate. Francisco X. Rivera, the Spanish-language play-by-play voice of the LA Kings, will make his English-speaking professional hockey broadcasting debut on March 13. Additionally, Josh Schaefer, a Southern California native, will call his first career AHL games. Schaefer is a recent graduate of Arizona State University, where he was the play-by-play voice of the Division 1 men’s ice hockey team. Kings radio analyst and Fox Sports West contributor Daryl Evans will provide color commentary for select Reign games.
