NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.- The South Carolina Stingrays, celebrating 23 seasons in the Lowcountry and proud affiliate of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL), announced today that forward Derek DeBlois has been loaned to the Lake Erie Montsters of the American Hockey League (AHL).
DeBlois, 24, rejoins the Monsters after opening the season with the team. On a professional try-out, DeBlois skated in a pair of games with the Monsters earlier this season, registering two penalty minutes and a +1 rating. He was released from his try-out by Lake Erie and rejoined the Stingrays on October 28.
With South Carolina this season, DeBlois appeared in nine games, scoring six points (three goals, three assists) and posting a +6 rating. His best game saw him register three points, including the game-winning goal, in South Carolina's 4-1 win over Elmira on November 7.
DeBlois enjoyed a sensational rookie season with South Carolina last year. In 2014-2015, the 5-foot-11, 187-pound DeBlois posted 45 points (21 goals, 24 assists) in 59 games during his rookie season with the Stingrays. He led the club in goals and finished third in points. The Narragansett, R.I. native was a key part of South Carolina’s run to the 2015 Kelly Cup Finals, registering 29 points (11 goals, 18 assists) in 27 playoff games. DeBlois, who played his NCAA Hockey at the University of Michigan, also appeared in four games for the Worcester Sharks of the American Hockey League (AHL) last season, scoring one goal.
the Stingrays begin a 10-game road trip this weekend. South Carolina visits Greenville at 7 p.m. on Saturday, before heading to Atlanta to battle the Gladiators at 7:05 p.m. on Saturday.
