Bednar Announced as VP of Hockey Operations

08/01/2006 3:08 PM -

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. Darren Abbott, President of the South Carolina Stingrays, announced today that Assistant Coach Jared Bednar will be the Vice President of Hockey Operations in addition to staying on as an Assistant Coach.  Bednar’s new position is effective immediately.

“Jared’s role with the Stingrays has broadened each year since he became an Assistant Coach in 2002,” noted Abbott.  “This is a natural progression for him personally and a great fit for the organization.”

Bednar, 32, is entering his fifth season as Assistant Coach of the Stingrays.  The native of Humboldt, Saskatchewan played six seasons for the Rays from 1995-2002 before taking on coaching duties.  He is seventh on the all-time Stingrays list for games played with 279 and fifth on the all-time Stingrays list in penalty minutes with 794.  Bednar played a total of nine professional seasons in the ECHL, AHL, and IHL.

“I’m very thankful for the opportunity the organization and ownership group has given me,” said Bednar.  “I am excited to expand my position with the team and to take on the new responsibilities and challenges that come along.” 

Bednar will be in full control over the hockey operations budget, including but not limited to player salaries, travel, equipment, housing and medical costs.  Head Coach Jason Fitzsimmons will still control player personnel decisions.
