At this rate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers will be an affiliate of the South Carolina Stingrays.
Stingrays leading scorer Peter Boyd has been loaned to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League.
Boyd becomes the third Stingray to be called up by Bridgeport, joining defenseman Scooter Vaughan and forward Chris Langkow.
Going to be tough to go down to Estero, Fla., this weekend and beat the Everblades with everyone up in the AHL.
Still, not hearing any movement from above, so expect another SPHL call-up.
Boyd, 25, leads the Stingrays and is tied for 15 in the ECHL with 28 points (11 goals, 17 assists) in 33 games, scored his first professional hat trick last Saturday in a 3-0 win over the Greenville Road Warriors and has five goals and nine assists in his last 11 contests. After being acquired at the ECHL trade deadline from the Bakersfield Condors last season, the Cambridge-Narrows, New Brunswick, native recorded four goals and six assists for 10 points in 10 games with the Stingrays and pitched in a goal in four Kelly Cup Playoff contests. In 50 games with the Condors, Boyd registered 29 points (18 goals, 11 assists).
Prior to turning pro, the 5-foot-10, 190-pound forward attended Ohio State University for four seasons acquiring 113 points (39 goals, 74 assists) in 159 games. After his senior season (2010-11), Boyd saw action in the American Hockey League with the Lake Erie Monsters, picking up one assist in 11 games.
