Former Capital Devante Smith-Pelly will be playing hockey again for a team close to his Scarborough home.
According to Mayors Manor’s John Hoven, DSP will be signing an AHL deal with the Ontario Reign. The deal will give the team some veteran experience down the stretch.
Ontario Reign roster update…
Sounds like they'll be signing former NHL forward Devante Smith-Pelly to an AHL deal. Will add some veteran experience. RW played 395 NHL games and spent last year in the KHL.

Nice, easy, shorthanded.
