The Stingrays have just announced the addition of Scott Davison to the coaching staff. Davidson is returning to the organization as a coach, but once wore the Stingrays sweater during the 2019-2020 campaign, where he saw action in 33 games. “Scott came highly recommended to us by former Stingrays coaches Steve Bergin and Ryan Warsofsky. After talking to him about the role, it became apparent that he was a great fit as our new assistant coach,” said Stingrays President Rob Concannon. “He is very familiar with the Stingrays organization and culture, having been a member of our 2019-20 team that finished first in the ECHL before the season was cut short due to COVID-19. He was a leader at both the junior hockey level and in college at Quinnipiac. He has also spent time in the AHL, so he knows what it takes to be a pro.”
The former Quinnipiac Bobcat had a stellar freshman season, posting a +16 in 42 games and tallying nine goals, and helping the team to their first ECAC championship. The team would fall to North Dakota in the Frozen Four, but he later would be named the assistant captain spot for his junior and senior seasons. He quickly turned pro and joined the Charlotte Checkers for their 2019 Calder Cup run.
He started his coaching career at Maine Nordiques Academy and Elite Hockey Academy in Connecticut and has helped players at the 16U and 18U levels.
The British Columbia native will be joining head coach Brenden Kotyk behind the bench for the 2023-2024 campaign, replacing Ryan Bourque as he heads to the USNDP.
