Stingrays Weekly Report: February 7, 2022

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. – The South Carolina Stingrays enter the week in seventh place in the South Division after picking up a victory in the lone game last weekend. Goaltender Hunter Shepard returned to the lowcountry with 29 saves on 30 shots faced. Three rookies scored in the contest, including two from Nick Isaacson, one from Derek Gentile, and Greg DiTomaso’s first professional hockey goal.

The Stingrays return home for the first time in nearly two and a half weeks for a pair of games against the Norfolk Admirals this upcoming weekend at the North Charleston Coliseum. The Rays hosted Norfolk the weekend of January 14/15, sweeping the visitors out of the Coliseum before picking up one of three wins at the Norfolk Scope Arena thanks to a January 30th victory. The home team has yet to lose a home game in regulation. The Rays shootout win on the 30th was the first time in the series a road team earned the victory.
