Steven Spencer played for the South Carolina Stingrays prior to us releasing him. In fact, Steven has resigned with South Carolina.

He played for the Sting Rays after we released him, actually. He was released from the Predators, offered a consolation prize tryout with Milwaukee, didn't make the team, and signed as a free agent with the Sting Rays. Unless he didn't make the River Rats' roster, I'm pretty sure he signed a contract with Albany this year. The Predators also no longer have an affiliation with an ECHL team. Prior to this year, we had an affiliation with the Toledo Storm, but due to the fact we weren't even sending them any players, that ended. If anything, we could "loan" him to another organization, much as we tried to do with Jan Lasak...but that sort of practice is reserved for guys that are on the outs with the organization and there's no place for them. WHL follower...Brown's situation is similar to Nashville's Jeremy Stevenson. He's got okay offensive tools, but he has to know his role..and he's going to be counted on as more of a grinder\mid-grade enforcer than a contributing member of the offense. Those type of players...as Stevenson can attest...end up riding the pine in games they aren't needed. Yablonski is someone the Preds have some long term aspirations for..but even he has only played in one game. Brandon Segal...a guy that WILL be counted on to score goals...has only played in one game. It's the crux of being a rookie on a strong, deep team. Brown is there to absorb and get playing time when he can...in hopes that next year, when some vets have moved on...he'll be ready to step in. He's, in essence, learned everything he could in juniors, and it's time for some classroom learning in the form of watching a professional team operate.
