>Zatkoff to Play for Ontario Reign
>The Manchester Monarchs have assigned former RedHawk standout goaltender Jeff Zatkoff to the Ontario Reign of the ECHL.
I must say I’m surprised to see this move, as I thought Jonathan Bernier would have been playing with the Kings in net this season, but with Bernier’s assignment to the AHL, and Jonathan Quick also in Manchester, Zatkoff wouldn’t have gotten much playing time in all probability.
Is this the right move for the Kings and Zatkoff’s development? Is Zats too good for the ECHL? What do you think?

>You know…I don’t know if Zatkoff would “rather be playing” for the Hawks than in the “E” (I know I’d rather have him in Oxford) but I do think JZ was somewhat surprised to be assigned to Ontario. In my mind, I think he may have left Miami early, under the impression that he would be good enough to play for Manchester and he might BE good enough for the AHL. But with the Kings surprising assignment of Jonathan Bernier to the Monarchs, it more than likely stamped Zats’ ticket for Ontario.
