The Devils are pleased to confirm the return of defenceman Bryce Reddick for his third season in Cardiff.
Last season Bryce had a career best 11 goals and 33 assists for 44 points in 71 games played with the Devils including 4 goals on the powerplay. He finished as the 2nd highest scoring defencemen on the Devils behind Gleason Fournier and 5th overall in defencemen scoring in the league.
The 29-year-old made the move to Cardiff in 2017 after a season in Denmark with the Aalborg Pirates and has won 4 trophies (1 league title, 2 playoff titles and a conference title) as a Devil.
Bryce was born in Winnipeg in 1989, where his father Eldon ‘Pokey’ Reddick was playing for the Winnipeg Jets in the NHL. Bryce played his university hockey at Michigan Tech where he was converted from a forward to a defenceman and turned pro with the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL before making the move to Europe in 2014. Bryce played in France, Norway and then Denmark before moving to Wales.
Bryce was Andrew Lord’s Coach’s player of the Year in his debut season in Cardiff and the Devils head coach is delighted to have him back for another season:
“Bryce is a true competitor, which shows game in and game out, he plays with such passion and love for the game. He is a student of the game, constantly working to improve.
“His skating ability is another great asset and he has learned to use it in all areas, both offensively and defensively. Bryce has developed into a great all-around defenseman and can be used in any situation. "It's been fun watching his progress here in Cardiff and he has quietly become a huge part of the second wave of our core group alongside guys like Louis, Fournier and Pope."
