Rheault Gets The Call, Signs PTO With Monarchs

The Manchester Monarchs, primary affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings, have re-signed right wing Jon Rheault to a professional tryout agreement, Monarchs Director of Hockey Operations Hubie McDonough announced today. Rheault, 22, appeared in seven games with the Monarchs at the beginning of this season, recording his first professional goal against the Lowell Devils at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester’s 4-3 shootout loss on October 29. He collected one point (1-0=1) and four penalty minutes while playing for the Monarchs. Rheault graduated from Providence College in May following four seasons and 142 games. The 5-foot-11, 200-pound native of Deering, New Hampshire, registered 56 goals and 49 assists for 105 points and 126 penalty minutes with the Friars. Rheault played with the Manchester Flames and the Junior Monarchs before going to Providence College. He joined the ECHL’s Ontario Reign in early November when the Monarchs released him from his tryout. While playing for Ontario, Rheault collected 14 points (5-9=14) and 29 penalty minutes in 16 games.
