WHO: Orlando Solar Bears vs. South Carolina Stingrays
VENUE: ARS.com Rink at Amway Center, Orlando, Fla.

LISTEN: OSB Radio via Mixlr
TONIGHT: The 2018-19 season, presented by XYMOPrint, continues this evening as the Orlando Solar Bears (0-1-0-0) host the South Carolina Stingrays (0-1-0-0) in a rematch of the 2018 South Division Semifinals. That series saw the Solar Bears advance to the second round of the Kelly Cup Playoffs for the first time in team history, on the strength of a four-game sweep. Orlando also defeated South Carolina by a 3-0 score in a preseason meeting at the RDV Sportsplex Ice Den on Oct. 4.
OLSON FACES FORMER CLUB: Rookie forward Trevor Olson is expected to make his season debut tonight for Orlando. Olson turned pro this past spring with South Carolina after wrapping up his college career at the University of North Dakota, and picked up one assist in eight regular season contests with the Stingrays.
COMMITMENT TO DISCIPLINE: The Solar Bears will look to avoid getting into penalty trouble after several infractions led to goals for Atlanta with the man advantage. Both Orlando and South Carolina are also hunting for their first power-play goals of the season.
BEREHOWSKY CLOSING IN ON CENTURY MARK: With 92 career wins behind the bench of the Solar Bears, Drake Berehowsky is already the winningest head coach in the team's ECHL tenure. He is only eight wins away from joining former IHL Solar Bears bench boss Curt Fraser as the second head coach of a professional hockey team in Orlando to reach the century mark in coaching wins.
