The 5'11", 195-pound defender has played in 49 career AHL games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Springfield, posting 10 assists. He skated in 26 games last season with Springfield, striking for seven assists. In 135 career ECHL games, Kim has scored 60 points (8g, 52a).

The 5'11", 180-pound forward is in his rookie season with the Stingrays after finishing his NCAA career at the University of Connecticut. He struck for 16 points (6g, 10a) in 36 games after playing the previous three years at Yale University. Following the end of UConn's season, he signed with the Stingrays and posted 10 points (6g, 4a) in 10 games.
