The Ontario Jr. Reign are pleased to announce that Fontana, California born forward Edward Pukhalsky has signed with the team for the 2023-2024 season. Edward joins the Jr Reign following a season with the  Richmond Generals of the USPHL Elite. 

A graduate of the local California Wave and Empire hockey programs, ‘Eddy’ had this to say about joining the OJR  “I'm very excited and honored to be joining the Reign and bringing some good competition to whoever we play this year.” Eddy continued, discussing his goals for the season, “I want to bring my best to step into higher levels of hockey next season and hopefully to college.”

When asked to describe his playing style “I’m a very quick player that can find the open guy and can move the puck very well. I always try to  keep a good attitude in the locker room.”

Head Coach and General Manager Jeremy Blumes had this to say about Eddy joining the club, “Eddy attended both of our camps and improved a ton from the first one in May to the second one in August. We expect him to continue to work hard and improve, he possesses a strong work ethic that will serve both him and our team well this season both on and off the ice.”
