The South Carolina Stingrays, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Washington Capitals, have announced that forward Steven McParland has been released from his PTO with the Binghamton Senators in the American Hockey League (AHL) and will return to South Carolina.
McParland was third on the Stingrays in scoring during the regular season with 48 points (19 goals, 29 assists) in 59 ECHL games. The rookie also recently had a 10-game point streak in which he totaled 13 points on five goals and eight assists from Feb. 27 through Mar. 25.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pound forward suited up for three contests with Binghamton while on loan with the team. It was the second AHL opportunity McParland has had this season, as the forward also played in three games with the Chicago Wolves from Feb. 6-21 and had one assist with a +2 rating.
The Schreiber, Ont. native earned a spot at the 2017 ECHL All-Star Classic in January and won the fastest skater competition at the event in Glens Falls, N.Y. McParland was also named the ECHL’s Rookie of the Month in November.
