The Hershey Bears announced today that forward Grant Besse has been re-assigned to the club’s ECHL affiliate, the South Carolina Stingrays. 

The move likely signals improvements to the health of the Bears’ blueline. In addition, the Capitals re-assigned Tyler Lewington to the Bears on December 31.


Besse, 24, appeared in seven games with the Bears this season, scoring two goals. He struck for his first goal as a member of the Chocolate and White on Dec. 16 at Springfield, and also added a marker on Dec. 28 at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

The forward has posted 24 points (12 goals, 12 assists) in 20 games with the Stingrays this season. He’s collected eight multi-point games on the season, and has totaled four power play goals. Besse has 86 points (42 goals, 44 assists) in 82 career ECHL games with Norfolk and South Carolina.
