Here are the three takeaways from Sunday’s 4-2 victory:

Charles Hudon exits early

Charles Hudon had to leave the game just under a minute into the first period as he fell awkwardly into the boards. After being in pain on the ice for about two minutes, Hudon was helped off the ice and down into the tunnel. He returned to the game briefly as the Reign were on the power play last in the first, but we didn’t see him on the ice again after that. While the Reign won their second straight game, the possibility of losing Hudon long-term could be a big blow as he has been their best offensive player. In the meantime, other players will need to step up in his absence if he misses any games.

Welcome back

After being claimed off waivers by the Nashville Predators last month, the LA Kings re-claimed Samuel Fagemo on Saturday and quickly assigned him to the Ontario Reign. Fagemo, wearing number 11, returned to the lineup playing alongside TJ Tynan, whom he has played with in the past. In his return, Fagemo recorded three shots on goal, a plus-two rating, and a goal off a one-timer just above the left circle. The goal would end up being the game-winning goal.

Rittich bounces back, earns an assist

After Erik Portillo’s bounce-back game on Friday, David Rittich had one of his own after giving up a soft goal in overtime in Wednesday’s loss to Tucson. Rittich carried a shutout through two periods and nine minutes into the final frame before giving up a power-play goal to Oskar Olausson at the 9:35 mark of the third period. Although Rittich allowed two goals in the third period, he was solid throughout the contest, making 25 saves on 27 shots. He even recorded an assist on a nice heads-up stretch pass to Jaret Anderson-Dolan in the second period.
