NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. - The South Carolina Stingrays, ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League's Washington Capitals and American Hockey League's Hershey Bears, announced that the club has signed forward Josh Wilkins to a contract for the 2024-25 season. 

Wilkins, 27, rejoins the Stingrays for a third consecutive season. The Raleigh, North Carolina native has averaged a point-per-game in each of his previous two seasons with South Carolina. 

In 2022-23, Wilkins led the Stingrays in scoring with 62 points (21g-41a) in 62 games. Last season, Wilkins registered 37 points (20g-17a) in 37 games before departing in late January to play the remainder of the 2023-24 season in the top hockey league in Slovakia. Wilkins tallied seven points (5g-2a) in nine regular-season games in the Slovak Extraliga. Wilkins helped HK Dukla Michalovce reach the Slovak Extraliga semi-finals and tallied six points (3g-3a) in 11 playoff games.

Wilkins has enjoyed a five year professional hockey career that includes 81 games at the AHL level split between the Milwaukee Admirals and Tucson Roadrunners. He has tallied 20 points (6g-14a) in 81 career AHL games and 100 points (41g-59a) in 104 career ECHL games. 

Before joining the Stingrays, Wilkins spent the 2021-22 season playing for Västerviks IK and HC Vita Hästen in HockeyAllsvenskan, the second-highest league in the Swedish ice hockey system.
