San Diego defeated Ontario 3-2 in a shootout in their first exhibition game on Friday, October 2 at the Citizens Business Bank Arena. The Gulls jumped out to a two goal lead, getting an early goal from Bryan Moore in the first period and a power play goal from Harry Zolnierczyk 5:22 in to the second frame. Ontario equalized with a late second period goal from Alex Roach, then a power play marker by Valentin Zykov past the middle mark of the third.
Matt Hackett made stops on 30 of 32 shots for San Diego, while Reign goalie Michael Houser denied 25 of 27. The teams played through a scoreless three-on-three overtime session, with Hackett making seven stops including a shutting the door on Zykov on a breakaway during the five minutes of extra time. Ondrej Kase scored the lone goal in the shootout to give the Gulls the victory.
