Stingrays 2016-17 Schedule Released

By
Posted April 28, 2016

Unlike other leagues that make fans and teams wait months after the end of the season to announce next year’s games, the East Coast Hockey League announces them during the playoffs. For South Carolina, some unfamiliar faces will make their debut at the North Charleston Coliseum while they simultaneously welcome familiar acquaintances.

Opening Night is also the Rays Home Opener, where the Lowcountry welcomes in intra-state rival Greenville. The Swamp Rabbits and Stingrays will play 14 games out of the 72 game slate, the most of any opponent. Only the Atlanta Gladiators, with 11, are in double digits.

Four teams will make their maiden voyage to North Charleston next season: the Wichita Thunder, Colorado Eagles, Tulsa Oilers, and Manchester Monarchs. The Stingrays went through Tulsa and Wichita last season as part of a swing including a matchup with the ECHL-leading Missouri Mavericks.

Also for the first time, South Carolina will visit Manchester, Colorado, and the Rapid City Rush. Multiple extended road trips dot the calendar, including six away from the Coliseum from February 1-10 and the season-high of seven straight away matches from February 24-March 10.

The Rays will play home games on the following holidays: New Year’s Day (vs. Florida), 1st Day of Chinese New Year (vs. Florida), Valentine’s Day (vs. Atlanta), Purim (vs. Florida), and April Fool’s Day (vs. Orlando).

The schedule is still subject to change as some teams need to wait for other leagues, like the NBA, to announce their schedules.
