Stingrays Name Carbery Sixth Head Coach in Team History

07/26/2011 1:07 PM -

North Charleston, SC – The South Carolina Stingrays, proud ECHL affiliate of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League, announced today that Spencer Carbery has accepted the position of Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations for the 2011-12 season. Carbery, 29, becomes the sixth head coach in Stingrays history and the youngest head coach in the ECHL.

“Today is a very special day for our organization in naming the sixth head coach in team history,” said Stingrays President Rob Concannon. “As a player, Spencer battled every night and I know he will bring those attributes behind the bench and carry on the traditions of this organization.”

Carbery, who served as the Stingrays’ assistant coach last season, joined the organization as a player during the 2008-09 season and helped the club capture its ECHL-record third Kelly Cup championship in 2009. The Victoria, British Columbia, native recorded 22 goals and 26 assists for 48 points in 94 games with the Stingrays. He was also named the inaugural recipient of the Jerry Zucker Community Service Award in 2009.

“I would like to thank Rob Concannon, the Greenwald family and the Zucker family for this great opportunity,” said Carbery. “I would also like to thank Cail MacLean, who showed me how to be a true professional and what it takes to coach in the ECHL. What he taught me is invaluable and I will never forget it. I am going to work as hard as I possibly can to not only put a competitive team on the ice every night, but an entertaining team, something the fans can be proud of.”

As a player, Carbery skated for four professional seasons with the Bakersfield Condors, Stockton Thunder, Fresno Falcons and Stingrays of the ECHL and the Tulsa Oilers of the CHL totaling 117 points (48g, 69a) in 244 games. 

Last season, Carbery helped lead the Stingrays to a 78-48-9-9 record while assisting former Stingrays head coach MacLean. 

Ticket packages for the 2011-12 season are on sale now for as low as $10 a month!  Call the Stingrays Office at (843) 744-2248 for more information. Become a fan of the Stingrays on Facebook at Stingrays Hockey – Hard-Hitting Family Fun!
