The Hershey Bears, the American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate of the South Carolina Stingrays, announced the recall of goaltender Parker Milner Wednesday. The 28-year-old netminder will join Hershey in advance of a weekend in which the Bears will play three games in three days against the Rochester Americans and Hartford Wolf Pack.
Milner has a record of 3-2-0 with the Stingrays this season in five appearances. He re-signed with Hershey for the 2018-19 season on June 6, his third consecutive campaign on a contract with the Bears. The Pittsburgh native was named the Warrior Hockey/ECHL Goaltender of the Year for his work in 2017-18, posting a 28-7-3 record. His goals against average of 1.86 was the best in the ECHL, and the fourth best in league history. He finished with the third best save percentage in the league at .929 and recorded three shutouts, helping him earn All-ECHL First Team honors.
The two-time national champion at Boston College opened the 2017-18 season with Hershey, going 1-4-1 with a 3.81 goals against average in six appearances with the Bears. In 11 games with Hershey over the past two seasons, Milner has posted a 4-6-1 record. In total, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound goaltender has played in 26 career AHL games with Hershey, Bridgeport, and Iowa, earning a 10-11-1 record to go along with a 3.27 goals against average and a .894 save percentage.
Milner, who led the Stingrays to the Kelly Cup Finals in 2017, is 104-56-11 with a 2.36 goals against average and a .916 save percentage in 175 career ECHL games with South Carolina, Missouri, Quad City, and Stockton.
