North Charleston, S.C. – The South Carolina Stingrays and Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Spencer Carbery announced today that forward Justin Maylan has been loaned to the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League.
Maylan, 22, appeared in two games with the Stingrays this season recording one assist. The Calgary, Alberta, native skated in 49 games with the Stockton Thunder in his rookie campaign last season finishing third on the team with 40 points (18g-22a). Before suffering a season-ending injury in early February, Maylan was third among ECHL rookies in scoring and power-play points (15) and second among first-year players with 12 power-play assists and 144 shots. He represented the Thunder in the 2013 ECHL All-Star Game in Loveland, Colo. and added one assist in the ECHL All-Stars’ 7-3 victory over the Colorado Eagles. The Stingrays acquired the ECHL rights to Maylan on June 12 to complete an earlier trade with Stockton.
After completing his junior career with Prince Albert of the Western Hockey League in 2011-12, Maylan made his pro debut by appearing in one game with the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League.
