Erik Reitz (born July 29, 1982 in Detroit, Michigan) is an American professional ice hockey defenceman. He plays for EC Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Nationalliga.

Playing careerEdit

Reitz was drafted 170th overall in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft by the Minnesota Wild from the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League. He plays defense, and has also spent six seasons with the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League (AHL). He made his NHL debut with the Wild in the 2005–06 season, playing in 5 games.

Reitz made the Wild roster for the 2008-09 season and played in 31 games before he was traded by the Wild to the New York Rangers in exchange for Dan Fritsche on January 29, 2009.[1] After 11 games with the Rangers, Erik was claimed off waivers by the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 4, 2009.[2] Reitz never debuted for the Leafs after suffering a season-ending ankle injury on March 7, 2009.

On August 22, 2009, Reitz signed with Sibir Novosibirsk of the KHL.[3] After a single season in Russia, Reitz left to sign a one-year contract for EC Red Bull Salzburg of Austria on November 10, 2010.[4] Lacking match conditioning, Reitz trained with Salzburg for under a month before he was released without making his debut.

He is now playing for Salzburg in the 2011-12 season.
