NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — South Carolina Stingrays goaltender Parker Milner has been named to the All-ECHL Second Team for the 2019-20 season as determined in a vote of ECHL coaches, broadcasters, media relations directors and media.
Milner, who was previously named to the All-ECHL First Team and ECHL Goaltender of the Year in 2017-18, led the league with seven shutouts, finished second with a 2.20 goals-against average and sixth with a .923 save percentage. His shutout mark was tied for the second-most in a single ECHL season, while his total of 20 wins ranked 7th-highest in the league.
A Pittsburgh native, Milner was playing with the Stingrays while signed to an American Hockey League contract by the Hershey Bears for the fourth consecutive season. The seventh-year pro was also honored as the ECHL Goaltender of the Week twice during the 2019-20 year on Oct. 29 and Jan. 21.
The 29-year-old earned two call-ups to Hershey this season and recorded his first career AHL shutout on Dec. 29, stopping 19 shots in a 3-0 win for the Bears over Lehigh Valley.
Milner was also named to the 2020 Warrior/ECHL All-Star Classic hosted in Wichita, Kansas on Jan. 22. In his first career All-Star appearance, he led the South Division team to a win in the event along with Stingrays Head Coach Steve Bergin.
