ECHL: Leppard and Stewart Set to Return to South Carolina

Two heavy hitters are set to return to South Carolina as Jackson Leppard and Chase Stewart have agreed to terms for the upcoming season.  

Leppard was acquired from Allen last season and saw action in 37 games last season with the Stingrays and tallied 19 points. Before the trade, the 6’2 forward had seen action in 106 games for the Americans over the past two seasons and spent six seasons in the WHL, where he scored 115 points in 252 games. Leppard dropped the gloves in five games last season, most notably with Mackenzie Dwyer of the Icemen in the last home game of the season. He was fourth on the team in Pims with 62 but finished the season with 121 PIMS between the Stingrays and Americans.  

Stewart will be entering his third year with the organization, coming off his personal best plus-minus (+4) from last season. Like Leppard, Stewart also tallied five fighting majors last season in 29 appearances on ice. He did not see any ice time during playoffs due to injury.  

With Leppard up top and Stewart protecting the blue line, the Stingrays will surely be a force again this upcoming season. They join Jack Adams, the Notre Dame alum, who was signed earlier this month.
