CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA - Goaltender Will King turned in a stellar performance in his first game with the Brampton Beast, stopping all but one of the 22 shots he faced, but he was outdueled by the opposing netminder Jeff Jakaitis, who turned away 32 shots to help the South Carolina Stingrays to a 1-0 win on Friday night in South Carolina.
