Boston Bruins Renews Affiliation Deal South Carolina Stingrays

July 31, 2014

National Hockey League’s Boston Bruins have extended their ffiliation agreement with ECHL’s South Carolina Stingrays.

The 2014-15 season marks the third consecutive campaign the Stingrays have served as the ECHL affiliate of the Bruins.

“It has been a great relationship,” mentioned Carbery. “We have a lot of respect for the way they do things in Providence and Boston. We are happy to be back on board and excited about the future with them.” 

The Stingrays finished the 2013-14 season third in the ECHL’s Eastern Conference and captured the South Division title with a record of 43-23-6 (92 points). 

Earlier this summer, the Stingrays entered an NHL affiliation agreement with the Washington Capitals, who served as the team’s affiliate for eight seasons prior to joining the Bruins before the 2012-13 campaign. The dual affiliation is the second in Stingrays history and first since the 1994-95 season, when they partnered with the Buffalo Sabres and Vancouver Canucks.
