NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.- The South Carolina Stingrays, ECHL affiliate of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League, have agreed to terms with forward David Pacan, Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Spencer Carbery announced.
The Stingrays acquired Pacan’s ECHL rights last week in a trade with Missouri that moved the ECHL rights of defenseman Lee Moffie to the Mavericks.
Pacan, 24, has played three seasons in the ECHL, skating with the Cincinnati Cyclones and the Kalamazoo Wings. He enjoyed a strong first pro season with the Cyclones, posting 52 points (14g-38a) in 57 games, and earning a spot on the 2012-13 ECHL All-Rookie Team. After moving to Kalamazoo in 2013-14, Pacan returned to Cincinnati last season. With the Cyclones in 2014-15, Pacan scored 40 points (11g-29a) in 62 games. He also appeared in eight games for the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League, scoring one goal.
A sixth-round selection (177th overall) of the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Pacan played one year at the University of Vermont before joining the Niagara Ice Dogs of the Ontario Hockey League before turning pro.
