The Ontario Reign are a professional ice hockey team in the American Hockey League (AHL) which began play in the 2015-16 season. Based in Ontario, California and affiliated with the National Hockey League's Los Angeles Kings, the team plays its home games at the Citizens Business Bank Arena. It is a relocation of the former Manchester Monarchs AHL franchise, joining several other AHL franchises to form a new AHL Pacific Division.
On January 29, 2015, the Los Angeles Kings announced that they would be moving their AHL affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs, to Ontario as one of five charter member's of the AHL's new Pacific Division. The team retained the Reign nickname from its ECHL predecessor (which moved to Manchester and take on the Monarchs moniker, in essentially a "franchise swap"). The Reign's AHL logo was unveiled on Wednesday, February 11.
In the team's inaugural season in California, the Reign won the first Pacific Division regular season title and goaltender Peter Budaj was named to the 2015–16 AHL First All-Star Team and was selected as the league top goaltender with the Baz Bastien Memorial Award.
In October 2016, due to goaltender injuries among the parent LA Kings team, the Reign team ended up using a Canadian father-son duo Dusty and Jonah Imoo for their goalies. Dusty (age 46) was a goaltending consultant with the Kings. Jonah (age 22) made his AHL debut on a tryout contract. Both the Imoos had grown up in Surrey, British Columbia.
