Stingrays Justin Maylan called up to AHL

South Carolina Stingrays centerman Justin Maylan has been loaned to the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Maylan, 22, appeared in two games with the Stingrays this season, recording one assist.

The Calgary, Alberta, native played in 49 games with the ECHL’s Stockton Thunder last season, finishing third on the team with 40 points (18 goals, 22 assists). 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.

Maylan represented the Thunder in the 2013 ECHL All-Star Game, recording one assist in the ECHL All-Stars’ 7-3 victory over the Colorado All-Stars. The Stingrays acquired the ECHL rights to Maylan on June 12 to complete a trade that involved former Stingrays captain Shawn Weller.

Maylan played one game for the Portland Pirates during the 2011-12 season.
