Bindulis Re-Assigned To StingraysDec 2, 2017
The Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL) announced Saturday that defenseman Kris Bindulis has been re-assigned to the South Carolina Stingrays. The 22-year-old blueliner has been with the AHL’s Hershey Bears for the majority of the 2017-18 season, appearing in six games.
Bindulis, a native of Riga, Latvia, also suited up for one game with South Carolina on Nov. 3 in Greenville against the Swamp Rabbits.
Currently in his rookie professional season, Bindulis signed with the Capitals in May. Before turning pro, the defenseman recorded 12 points (one goal, 11 assists) in 28 games with Lake Superior State University in 2016-17, ranking third among the team's defensemen in points and assists.
In a separate transaction, South Carolina released goaltender Carmine Guerriero from his standard professional contract Saturday. Guerriero, who is in his rookie year, played in one game during his second stint with the Rays this season, making 30 saves in a loss to Orlando on Sunday afternoon.
The Stingrays return to the ice at the North Charleston Coliseum to battle the Solar Bears on Saturday night at 7:05 p.m.
