The South Carolina Stingrays have announced they signed defenseman Steve Weinstein. Weinstein was the “future considerations” the Stingrays acquired from trading Colin Mulvey to Cincinnati.
The 25 year old is a native of Los Angeles and played his college days at Bentley. While there, he registered 105 points, with 91 of those being assists, in 145 games. This earned him two All-Atlantic First Team selections. In 2014-15, he was named the Atlantic Hockey Association’s (AHA) Best Defenseman. He had 23 points in 35 games that season. He then signed with the Springfield Falcons (AHL). He registered an assist in three games with the Falcons.
After finishing the 2014-15 season with Springfield, he was with the Cincinnati Cyclones for 2015-16. There he earned a four game call up to the Lake Erie Monsters, where he registered one assist. While in Cincinnati, Weinstein had 19 assists and three goals for 22 points in 53 games.
Weinstein also said he was “excited” to find out he was traded to South Carolina in early June and was told by teammates that “Charleston is a great place to play”.
