Dovgan, 20, returns to the Stingrays after playing last season in Russia where he recorded 10 penalty minutes in 16 games with CSKA Moscow. The 6-foot-2, 202-pound blueliner spent the 2006-07 campaign with South Carolina, registering 11 points (5g, 6a) and 95 penalty minutes in 56 contests. The Moscow native also saw action in the Hershey Bears’ 2006-07 regular season finale in Philadelphia, posting two penalty minutes. Originally, Dovgan was the Capitals’ 7th round pick (209th overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Pokulok, 22, returns after concluding the 2007-08 season with the Stingrays where he collected six assists in 18 playoff games. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound defenseman spent most of last season in Hershey, totaling seven points (1g, 6a) and 43 penalty minutes in 44 contests. The Vaud-Dorion, Quebec, native also played five regular season matches with South Carolina this past spring, notching six assists. Washington’s 1st round selection in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft (14th overall), Pokulok amassed nine points (3g, 6a) in 16 games with the Stingrays in 2006-07, his first professional campaign.

Maxwell, 22, begins his second straight season in the Lowcountry after being limited to a combined 18 games in 2007-08. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound forward compiled three points and 28 penalty minutes in nine contests with South Carolina before getting recalled to Hershey in November where he produced an assist and 44 penalty minutes in nine games. The Spokane, Washington, native led the Phoenix Roadrunners and all ECHL rookies with 213 penalty minutes in 2006-07, and added five goals and eight assists for 13 points in 53 contests.
