In 82 career ECHL games, the Plymouth, Minn. native has posted 86 points (42g, 44a) with Norfolk and SC. Last year in his rookie season, Besse also appeared in 11 AHL games with the Cleveland Monsters and scored seven points (1g, 6a).
Redmond, 23, rejoins the Stingrays after he headed to San Diego on Dec. 29. The netminder did not appear in any game action during his time with the Gulls. While with South Carolina earlier in December, Redmond saw time in three contests, going 1-1-1 with 72 total saves.
