This is an interesting move.
You’d think the Rays had finally solidified their blue line when they acquired Ryan McGinnis from Florida.
But evidently not. Or maybe this is to use to make another move? Who knows at this point. Should clear up in the next couple hours.
The South Carolina Stingrays have acquired the ECHL rights of defenseman Ryan Grimshaw from the Trenton Titans. The transaction completes the future considerations portion of the Mike Ullrich trade made earlier this season.
Grimshaw, 23, is currently with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League and dressed in 12 games netting no points. With the Titans, the Rochester, New York, native recorded six points (three goals, three assists) in 23 games. Currently in his first full professional season, Grimshaw attended Harvard University for four seasons totaling 26 points (four goals, 22 assists) in 121 contests.
The Rays are expected to make one more move today at the ECHL’s Trade Deadline. The next player should be a forward.
