Only one player has been signed to a PTO contract so far this year for the Admirals, and that’s forward Cam Reid.
A 7th round draft pick of the Preds in 2009, Reid was not signed to a contract, and became a free agent. He played last year with St Cloud State of the WCHA and the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL, making it to the finals of their playoffs, before participating in Milwaukee’s training camp this year. Reid played one game for Peoria before signing a new PTO contract with the Admirals on November 20th.
17 games later, he’s getting regular minutes, most recently playing on a line with Austin Watson and Juuso Puustinen. He has five assists on the season, with a couple of them of the spin-o-rama variety.
The PTO contract is up after 25 games. Based on his play, do you feel that he deserves to have his PTO turned into an SPC (standard player contract)?
