Reitz, 26, has a goal and an assist in 31 games for Minnesota this season, his third in the NHL.
Steve Zipay at Blue Notes adds that Reitz, a 6-1, 210-pound Detroit native, is a banger who piled up hundreds of penalty minutes in OHL Barrie and with the Houston Aeros. Reitz, an RFA next season, was earning $500,000 this season.
...happy to see Fritsche will get a chance with another team. Wonder why Minnesota didn't just claim him yesterday?
...not sure if Reitz is now our seventh defenseman or will be assigned to Hartford.
