The South Carolina Stingrays, proud affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Washington Capitals, have announced that a record-high of over $38,000 was raised through the team’s postgame jersey auction on January 19 after the game against the Orlando Solar Bears which was played in front of a season-high 9,676 fans.Part of the proceeds will go to the Charleston Warriors, an affiliate of the USA Warriors Ice Hockey Program, which provides awareness, training, coaching, and equipment for Veterans as part of their adaptive ice hockey sports program. They are primarily focused on providing on-going rehabilitative, therapeutic, and whole-life adaptive sports opportunities for a large and growing population of disabled Veterans and active members of the Armed Forces.

In addition, forward Andrew Cherniwchan, who recently represented the Stingrays at the 2019 ECHL All-Star Classic in Toledo, saw his jersey go for $2,000.South Carolina returns to the North Charleston Coliseum on Friday, February 15 for their first matchup ever with the Newfoundland Growlers at 7:05 p.m. Tickets are on sale now!
