The Ontario Jr Reign is proud to announce that former Ontario Reign forward Branden Parkhouse has been hired as an Assistant Coach.

A native of Rancho Cucamonga, Branden played juniors for both the Bay City Bombers in the WSHL and Helena Bighorns in the NPHL. In 2009, Branden attended Becker College to play NCAA Divison 3 hockey. While there, he set multiple career and season records, including being the first player in Becker's History to reach the 100 point mark.

After graduating from Becker College in 2013, Branden began his professional hockey career with the Ontario Reign in the ECHL. The following season, he would join the Watertown Privateers in the FHL.

Shortly after, Branden traveled to Slovakia where he helped the HC Detva to a Slovakia2 Championship before returning stateside to play for the Port Huron Prowlers. In 2018, the FHL awarded Branden with Forward of the Year and Most Valuable Player while playing for the Port Huron Prowlers.
