GF Default - RAW: New Stingrays head coach Spiros Anastas

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Former Stingrays head coach Spiros Anastas is back in the ECHL. After being fired by the Rays earlier this year, Anastas was hired as the new head coach of the Brampton Beast on Wednesday.

My family and I are thrilled to be joining the Beast family, Anastas said in a statement to the team. “We’d like to thank Cary Kaplan and the ownership group for their part in the process. It was very detailed and thorough and we’re excited that I have been entrusted to lead this team moving forward.”

Anastas will make 1 appearance in the Lowcountry this coming season. The Beast are scheduled to the play the Stingrays at the North Charleston Coliseum on January 10th.
