Rempel traded to Las Vegas; Rays to sign 2 from San Francisco; Scouting Orlando

The biggest news out of Stingrays Nation today was the trade of defensemen Brendan Rempel to Las Vegas for future considerations.

With Ryan Grimshaw back from the AHL and Steve Spinell not too far behind, the Stingrays had to make room.

Also, learned late Thursday afternoon that Rays HC Spencer Carbery has managed to sign at least two players from the now defunct San Francisco Bulls.

A source out West couldn’t confirm which players, but he did know that at least two players and maybe even a third was picked up by the Stingrays.

My guess is that they will not be in the lineup Friday night against Orlando.


Here’s a story in the Orlando Sentinel about the Solar Bears on the road.

  1. Former Ray Sean Dolan assigned to Florida by Charlotte…

    There are 4 rays approaching the end of there PTO contract of 25 games.
    Hagel 18 games
    Vaughan 20 games
    Owens 15 games
    Cherniwchan 20 games

    Painchaud has only played in 6 games for Norfolk!

  2. On paper the Dale Mitchell signing appears to be a very good one. His stats with SF have him just under a point per game producer with some penalty minutes. Possibly plays with a gritty edge to his game! 30 games left….
