“We are very pleased to have acquired Marty,” said Tallon. “He is a hard working, veteran center who is good on face-offs and can be counted upon to play in all game situations. We look forward to his contributions to our club.”
Reasoner, 33, has played in 624 career National Hockey League contests for St. Louis (1998-2001), Edmonton (2001-2006 & 2006-08), Boston (2006) and Atlanta (2008-10) scoring 82 goals with 141 assists and 319 PIM. The Honeoye Falls, NY native has spent the last two seasons playing for the Atlanta Thrashers, appearing in his 600th career NHL game on Feb. 5, 2010 at Washington.
A first round pick (14th overall) of the St. Louis Blues in 1996 NHL Entry Draft, Reasoner played three years at Boston College (1995-98). He was named Rookie of the Year his freshmen year, and named All-American his junior season when he led the Eagles to the NCAA finals.
Reasoner, along with Atlanta's first and second round picks in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Joey Crabb and Jeremy Morin were acquired by the Chicago Blackhawks on June 24, 2010, in a multiplayer deal that sent Dustin Byfuglien, Ben Eager, Brent Sopel and Akim Aliu to the Thrashers.
