It is a relocation of the former Manchester Monarchs AHL franchise, joining several other AHL franchises to form a new AHL Pacific Division.

On January 29, 2015, the Los Angeles Kings announced that they would be moving their AHL affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs, to Ontario as one of five charter member's of the AHL's new Pacific Division. The team retained the Reign nickname from its ECHL predecessor (which moved to Manchester and take on the Monarchs moniker, in essentially a "franchise swap".)[1]

The Reign's AHL logo was unveiled on Wednesday, February 11.
