Reid's professional career has seen him primarily in the ECHL, where he began playing with the Elmira Jackals in 2007. After one season with the Jackals, Reid was traded to the Wheeling Nailers for forward Steve McJannet. Reid attended the Pittsburgh Penguins' rookie camp in 2008 before being returned to their ECHL affiliate in Wheeling for the 2008-09 ECHL season. He led all Nailers defensemen with 13 goals and earned a spot in the ECHL All-Star game.
After one season with the Nailers, Reid signed with the Florida Everblades for the 2009–10 season. During the season, he was called up to the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League for 9 games. He remained with the Everblades during the 2010-11 season, but missed the majority of the season due to injuries. Reid also served a five-game suspension due to an incident on January 22, 2012, where he left the bench during a fight. Reid was cited with DUI on February 1, and he was cited with an undisclosed fine from the team. The Everblades also noted that "the matter would be handled internally."
During the 2011–12 ECHL season, he spent time with the Kalamazoo Wings and was recalled by the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League.
