The South Carolina Stingrays and Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Spencer Carbery announced on Tuesday Scott Campbell has been recalled to the team’s American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Providence Bruins.

Campbell has appeared in 21 games with the Stingrays this season registering eight goals and eight assists for 16 points. The forward split time during the 2012-13 season between the Las Vegas Wranglers (ECHL) and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (AHL). While in Las Vegas, the 27-year-old tallied 10 points (4g, 6 a) in 24 games and added 18 points (7g, 11a) in 46 games with the Sound Tigers.

The Navan, Ontario native spent four seasons with the UMass Lowell River Hawks from 2007-2011 before moving on to the professional ranks. While with the River Hawks, Campbell tallied 85 points (39g, 46a) over 126 contests. The forward was also named to the All-Academic team twice (2009-10 and 2010-11).

The Providence Bruins are in need of bodies on their AHL roster after the Boston Bruins depleted their roster with callups to the NHL after recent injuries to Loui Eriksson, Dougie Hamilton, Johnny Boychuk, Adam McQuaid and Chris Kelly.

Campbell will join fellow former River Hawk Bobby Robins on the P-Bruins roster. The two forwards did not skate together at UMass Lowell, as Robins’ final season with the River Hawks came in 2006. Additionally, Campbell will join former River Hawks Chad Ruhwedel, Riley Wetmore and Ben Holmstrom in the AHL.
