NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – The South Carolina Stingrays, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Washington Capitals and AHL’s Hershey Bears, announced today that goaltender Tyler Wall has been recalled by Hershey and defenseman Martin Haš has been reassigned to South Carolina.
Wall, 24, initially signed with South Carolina ahead of the season before his outstanding performance through eight starts earned him an AHL deal with the Bears on December 14th. The netminder was subsequently assigned to South Carolina the same day. Wall has appeared in nine games between the pipes for the Stingrays, posting a 6-3-0 record along with a 0.902 save percentage and a 3.14 goals against average. The 6-foot-3, 214-pound goaltender was drafted by the New York Rangers in the sixth round, 174th overall, in the 2016 NHL Draft.
The native of Leamington, ON spent the previous two seasons on an NHL contract with the Rangers and was assigned to their AHL and ECHL affiliates in Hartford and Jacksonville. In parts of two seasons with the Hartford Wolf Pack, Wall posted a 4-8-1 record with a 0.866 save percentage and a 3.83 goals against average. Last year in Jacksonville with the Icemen, Wall recorded a 5-3 record with a 2.41 goals against average and a 0.900 save percentage before being sidelined by an injury for the remainder of the season.
Haš, 21, signed an AHL deal with the Bears this past offseason and was assigned to South Carolina before the start of the season.

Haš appeared in 14 games with the Stingrays during his rookie campaign, tallying three points on one goal and two assists. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound blueliner was drafted by Washington in the fifth round, 153rd overall, in the 2019 NHL Draft.
