Q&A With Stephen Werner

By:
Written by Holly Gunning on 02/15/2007

Stephen Werner is one of many pro rookies cutting his teeth in the ECHL.  He began the season with AHL affiliate Hershey Bears, but was sent down to the South Carolina Stingrays to get more ice time. 

The
Chevy Chase, MD native was drafted in the third round by his hometown Washington Capitals in 2003 after a very good freshman year at Umass-Amherst in which he scored 38 points in 37 games.  

The 6’1 right wing joined Hershey when his senior season was over last spring, played in four games and scored three assists.  The Bears went on to win the 2006 Calder Cup. 

Werner was assigned to the Stingrays on Dec. 6.  He played five games before he was injured on Dec. 20 in a game against the Augusta Lynx.  He remained out for one month, returning on Jan. 19.  The 22-year-old now has seven goals and six assists in 15 games as a Stingray. 

Hockey’s Future spoke to Werner recently after a tough loss to the Gwinnett Gladiators. 

HF: You were sent down because you weren’t getting much ice time.  What kind of line were you playing on in Hershey and how much would you estimate you were playing per night? 

SW: I was playing on the fourth line, getting around 10 or fewer minutes a game, depending on special teams.  They have a lot of talented forwards there and there wasn’t much room for me on the first three lines.  So they thought it would be a good idea for me to come down here and get some more time, and I think it’s been good for me so far.
