MacLean Named Assistant Coach

09/30/2008 12:15 PM -

North Charleston, SCThe South Carolina Stingrays and Head Coach Jared Bednar announced today that former Stingrays captain Cail MacLean has been named Assistant Coach. In keeping with club policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

MacLean, 32, concluded his 11-year playing career with South Carolina this past season, totaling 46 points (21g, 25a) and a team-leading 14 power-play goals in 63 games. The Middleton, Nova Scotia, native appeared in all 20 Kelly Cup Playoff contests this past spring, registering 11 points (2g, 9a) as the Stingrays advanced to their first conference final since 2001.

“I’m really excited,” MacLean said. “I want to thank the Stingrays organization for the great opportunity and giving me a chance to coach at this level, and especially Jared for his willingness to work with me.”

In his new role as Assistant Coach, MacLean, who also is a full-time student at Trident Technical College, will be behind the bench at home games, but not traveling with the team. The former forward also will run some clinics as well as work with youth hockey in the Lowcountry.

“I think he’s going to be a wonderful coach,” Bednar said. “Cail’s been around the game a long time, and I think our players will benefit from his experience, leadership and knowledge.”

Over his three-year tenure with South Carolina, MacLean collected 63 goals and 74 assists for 137 points in 169 regular season games. His goal, assist and point totals each rank in the top-20 in team history, while his 17 power-play markers during the 2006-07 campaign stand second in the Stingrays’ single-season record books.

MacLean broke into professional hockey with the Jacksonville Lizard Kings in 1997-98, leading the team with 65 points. He reached the Kelly Cup Finals in 2001 as a member of the Trenton Titans, who fell to the Stingrays four games to one.

The two-season Stingrays captain played with 15 teams during his pro career, amassing 524 points (266g, 258a) in 747 contests. MacLean spent time in the ECHL (Jacksonville, Trenton, Reading, South Carolina), American Hockey League (Cincinnati, Lowell, Philadelphia, Providence, Hartford, Hershey, Bridgeport), and International Hockey League (Cleveland, Indianapolis, Michigan, Grand Rapids) from 1997 to 2008.

MacLean originally signed with South Carolina on July 20, 2005, and was named the fifth captain in team history on July 26, 2006.

Mark your Calendars – the Stingrays open up the 2008-09 season at home against the Augusta Lynx on Saturday, October 18.  The game will be at the North Charleston Coliseum starting at 7:05 p.m.
