July 2013- Reece will be taking the next step in his career and turning pro. He signed his entry level contract and is headed to Albany for the upcoming season. In four full years with Swift Current, Scarlett has shown steady improvement from year to year. While his 49 point total from the 2012-13 season mirrored his output from the previous season, he did so in four fewer games(67), but also improved from a minus-14 to a plus-14 rating over that same span. Rex Doty

February 2013 - In his fourth full WHL season Scarlett has not disappointed. As a late round pick of the Devils expectations are not that high but he is still showing promise as a solid defensive prospect. Scarlett has 38 points in 53 games. There is a chance he returns to the WHL next year, but since he is signed by the club, expect him to move up to the pros next year. Zenon Herasymiuk


November 2012 – Returned to Swift Current of the WHL after signing his entry level contract. Currently has produced 10 points in 20 games this season, leading the Broncos’ defense.  Jason Banks

April 2012 – It was another tough year for Reece Scarlett and the Swift Current Broncos. Despite the team’s lack of success, Scarlett is starting to shine through as a very promising young prospect. He is solid both ways and logs a ton of minutes including playing both the power play and the penalty kill. Scarlett played in 71 games and notched 49 points, which was over double what he produced last year. His biggest issue is fending off bigger opponents, and he will have to build strength if he wants to make the jump to pro.


Fantasy Outlook: D

Not overly good at anything. Could become a third pairing defenseman many years down the road.
