Royals not worried with end of NHL Lockout

With the NHL Lockout over, the Royals are not in a panic over the potential of losing more players.


On the ice, the freeze brought on by the NHL Lockout has finally melted. While NHL hockey is back, that means the rosters have to be adjusted at all levels.

The Reading Royals and the ECHL are no exception.

The Royals feel very comfortable with the team they have. Despite losing a pair of games this weekend, the Reading still leads the Eastern Conference.

Stud goalie Philipp Grubauer was reassigned to Hershey and marks one of the bigger losses for the Royals.

But head coach Larry Courville isn't shaken. He has confidence in his core group of guys that they can continue to get the job done.
