MacLean, 33, is in his first season as head coach and director of hockey operations for South Carolina after working as an assistant coach for the Stingrays Kelly Cup champion team in 2008-09.

MacLean was a starter for the Northern Conference in the 2001 All-Star Game at Trenton, N.J. and he also played in 1999 scoring the game-winning goal and registering an assist in the Southern Conference’s 7-4 win at Biloxi, Miss.
