NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. - The South Carolina Stingrays, ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Washington Capitals and American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears, have agreed to terms with Marcus Perrier for the 2018-19 season.
A versatile skater who has played both forward and defense during his four-year career with South Carolina, Perrier will begin his fifth campaign with the Stingrays this season.
The 27-year-old Thunder Bay, Ontario native has played 259 career regular-season games with the Stingrays and has been with the team since the start of the 2014-15 season. During that time, he has secured a total of 83 points (31g-52a) along with a +51 rating.

Perrier has also appeared in 61 postseason contests for South Carolina, recording 14 points (6g-8a) and helping the club to two Kelly Cup Finals appearances in 2015 and 2017.
During his time with the Stingrays Perrier has also played a large role in the community. He was named the recipient of the team's 2016 Jerry Zucker Community Service Award for his dedication to the Lowcountry community and has continued to attend many events to stay involved each season.
Perrier joined the Stingrays after three seasons at Bowling Green State University from 2011-14, and three seasons with the Sioux Falls Stampede of the United States Hockey League from 2008-11.
