Victoria Royals goalie Coleman Vollrath steps onto the ice.

Coleman Vollrath has joined the ECHL’s Ontario Reign on an Amateur Tryout Agreement.

The product of Calgary, AB recently completed his third WHL season with the Victoria Royals and posted a 28-15-3-1 record with a goals against average (GAA) of 2.99, a save percentage (SV%) of 0.905 and six shutouts.

The 1995-born goaltender set the franchise’s all-time record for shutouts in a season and also extended Victoria’s all-time franchise mark for team shutouts in a campaign to eight.

In 114 career WHL games, Vollrath has registered a mark of 52-35-4-4 to go along with seven shutouts, a 2.88 GAA, and a 0.909 SV%.

Vollrath was selected by the Chilliwack Bruins in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft in the third round, 55th overall.

Vollrath isn’t the only Royal on the move.

Greg Chase has been assigned to the American Hockey League’s Oklahoma City Barons by the Edmonton Oilers for the remainder of the 2014-15 season.

Chase was drafted by Edmonton in the seventh round, 188th overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft and signed a three-year entry level deal with the Oilers this past September. During the 2013-14 season, Chase appeared in five games with the Barons and registered one goal.

A native of Sherwood Park, AB, Chase was acquired from the Calgary Hitmen in November of this season. In 61 games with the Royals and Hitmen, Chase notched 20 goals and 39 assists for 59 points. The 1995-born forward also notched 11 points (7g-4a) in 10 post-season contests with Victoria.

The 6-0, 188lb centre has recorded 221 points (78g-143) in 265 career WHL games to go along with 32 points (15g-17a) in 38 playoff appearances.
