So, while I was out Christmas shopping, saw this come over my email.
Looks like the Stingrays will get some reinforcements tonight. I had wondered why Providence had called up defensive Steve Spinell to sit him in the stands.
Well, he’s back.
The Rays also got Paul Rodrigues on loan from the Pensacola Ice Flyers of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) and signed defenseman Brendan Rempel.
Rodrigues, 25, has 26 points (5 goals, 21 assists) in 20 games with the Ice Flyers this season. Currently in his first professional campaign, the Etobicoke, Ontario, native totaled 133 points (50 goals, 83 assists) in 112 contests over four seasons at SUNY-Oswego.
Rempel, 22, skated in one game with the Evansville IceMen (ECHL) this season picking up two penalty minutes and dressed in five games with the ECHL’s Trenton Titans last season netting two assists after attending Harvard University for four seasons alongside Stingrays defenseman Ryan Grimshaw. With the Crimson, the Willington, Connecticut, product registered one goal and 10 assists in 81 games.
