Shepard, 25, rejoins the Bears after playing limited action with the Rays during the team’s shortened games in Wheeling last weekend.
The Coleraine, Minn. native has a 6-5-2 record in 14 appearances with South Carolina during his rookie professional season with a 2.84 goals-against average and a 0.915 save percentage.

Shepard helped guide the Bulldogs to back-to-back NCAA National Championships in 2018 and 2019 and was a three-time Mike Richter Award Finalist.

SC and Orlando will also play Friday for First Responders Night at 7:05 and the Rays will host the Jacksonville Icemen on Saturday for Space Wars Night at 6:05 pm.
