Catching up with former Aces Reid, Robinson (plus, Lunden note)

Former Alaska Aces goaltender James Reid, one of the good guys and recently traded to ECHL Orlando, tonight finally saw his first action since very early in the season -- he missed a ton of time with a high ankle sprain -- and it did not go well.

Reid started against Florida, but gave up three goals on 12 shots in the first 15+ minutes -- he gave up the first one 14 seconds in -- and got the hook in favor of Patrick Killeen, who proceeded to throw some gas on the fire. Killeen gave up three quick ones -- all six of those strikes came at even strength in the first period -- and Florida cruised to a 7-3 win. 

Former Aces winger Matt Robinson, who headed back to the CHL a bit ago, had one goal and one assist for Wichita tonight in a 5-3 win over Allen. He had the game winner. After scoring just one point, a goal, in his first four games back with Wichita, Robinson owns a seven-game point streak in which he has delivered 6-7--13 totals.

In the ECHL, former UAA Seawolves winger Josh Lunden bagged a Gordie Howe hat trick for the Las Vegas Wranglers with a fight, the game-tying goal and an assist on Channing Boe's game winner in the first minute of overtime for a 4-3 win over league-leading Ontario.
