With injuries piling up at forward, the South Carolina Stingrays have acquired winger Tyler Shelast.

Shelast, 27, played in 18 total games this season with the Stockton Thunder, Trenton Titans and Florida Everblades recording one goal and three assists for four points.

Last season, the Kelowna, British Columbia, native appeared in 53 contests with the Quad City Mallards of the Central Hockey League where was fourth on the team in goals (19) and assists (22).

Shelast has also seen action in the American Hockey League playing in a total of 60 games for the Iowa Stars, Hamilton Bulldogs and Texas Stars from 2007-10 grabbing 10 points (5g, 5a) in 60 games.

“Tyler is a guy who has played in the American League for an extended period of time,” said Stingrays head coach Spencer Carbery. “We’re hoping he can come in and help us.”
