The Bears have announced that defenseman Kris Bindulis has been re-assigned to Hershey from the club's ECHL affiliate, the South Carolina Stingrays. Additionally, the Bears have loaned defenders Paul Geiger and Tommy Hughes to South Carolina.

Bindulis, 22, has appeared in six games for Hershey, registering two penalty minutes. He made his AHL debut on Oct. 22 at Rockford. The native of Riga, Latvia has skated in 34 games with South Carolina this season, scoring 15 points (four goals, 11 assists). He has scored a pair of overtime goals this season for the Stingrays.

Hughes has skated in 10 games this season with the Bears, while Geiger posted an assist in five games with the Chocolate and White.
