NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. - The South Carolina Stingrays, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Washington Capitals and AHL's Hershey Bears, announced on Wednesday that the club has officially named Bradey Williston as the team's new Head Equipment Manager.
Williston, 26, is a native of Saint John, New Brunswick, and he joins the Stingrays after spending the past four seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He was an Assistant Equipment Manager for his hometown Saint John Sea Dogs for three seasons before serving as the Head Equipment Manager for the Acadie-Bathurst Titan in 2022-23.

"I am very excited about this opportunity with the Stingrays," said Williston. "I have always wanted to work in pro hockey and make a career out of it. I have heard nothing but amazing things about the Stingrays organization and the city of Charleston."
