Stingrays go to new NHL affiliate, Boston

Andrew Miller of the Post and Courier in Charleston says the new ECHL affiliate for the Boston Bruins will be the South Carolina Stingrays.

The Bruins previously affiliated with the Reading Royals before they went to the Stingrays.

The South Carolina Stingrays have been in the ECHL since 1993, and have one of the best legacies of any team in the league. They have won 3 Kelly Cup championships, and have made the playoffs in every season but one in their history.

They play at the 10,537 seat North Charleston Coliseum in North Charleston. The Stingrays have affiliated with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres, among others, and they just finished a relationship since 2004-05 season with the Washington Capitals.

An official announcement will be today or tomorrow.

The Providence Journal is confirming this news in their Bruins blog: http://blogs.providencejournal.com/sports/bruins/2012/07/south-carolina-stingrays-will-be-bostons-new-echl-affiliate.html
