Reid Duke (born January 28, 1996) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre on the roster of the Chicago Wolves in the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect to the Vegas Golden Knights of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Duke started his junior ice hockey career with the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the Western Hockey League after being selected fifth in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.[1] He was traded to Brandon three years later, after being selected in the sixth round of the 2014 NHL entry draft by the Minnesota Wild. In 2016, he won the WHL Championship, the Ed Chynoweth Cup, with the Wheat Kings.[2]

During his final year of junior hockey in the 2016–17 season, he became the first player in franchise history to be signed by the Vegas Golden Knights after agreeing to a three-year entry-level contract on March 6, 2017.[3][4] At the conclusion of his season and junior career with the Wheat Kings, Duke signed a professional try-out contract on April 7, 2017, with the Chicago Wolves in the American Hockey League, then serving as the affiliate to the St. Louis Blues.[5]
