LOS ANGELES – On Tuesday, Los Angeles Kings General Manager Rob Blake announced that Manchester Monarchs head coach Richard Seeley has been named as the new General Manager of the American Hockey League’s Ontario Reign.
Seeley played for what is now the Reign before the Reign and Monarchs effectively “switched franchises” and leagues after the 2013-’14 season.
Originally selected by the Kings in the sixth round of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, Seeley played in Manchester in over 200 games from 2000 to 2004 and again during the 2005-’06 season.
Although he never reached the NHL, Seeley played in the AHL for eight years, with stops in Germany, Austria and Northern Ireland prior to his retirement in 2011.
Seeley has served as the Monarchs’ head coach during all three years they’ve played in the ECHL, leading them to a 117-73-14-12 record.
