RARE VISIT FROM ACES
This weekend is only the third and fourth matchup between the Alaska Aces and South Carolina Stingrays in regular season play since the Aces joined the ECHL in 2003. South Carolina beat Alaska 4-1 at the North Charleston Coliseum on March 16, 2004 and 4-3 in a shootout on March 19, 2004 in the only two matchups in the regular season between the two clubs. The last time the Aces and Stingrays met outside of the regular season was during the 2009 Kelly Cup Finals. South Carolina won the series, 4-3, to claim the organization's third Kelly Cup. South Carolina Head Coach Spencer Carbery was a player on the Stingrays 2009 Championship Team.
Forward Colin Mulvey has been on a tear of late for South Carolina and now leads the team with 11 goals. Mulvey, who started the season in and out of the lineup, has five goals in his last four games. He scored a pair of goals in the Stingrays 4-2 loss to Cincinnati on January 3, and also notched two goals in South Carolina's 5-1 win at Adirondack this past Friday.
STAAL HITS 300
Forward Jared Staal skated in his 300th professional game on Sunday in a 3-1 loss to Reading. The forward has three goals in his last eight games, and has skated in 232 AHL games, 66 ECHL games and 2 NHL games with the Carolina Hurricanes. In those contests, Staal played with his brothers, Eric and Jordan.
