Well it's been a few years since I actively studied cottids, but when I left
off collecting these critters in the Bering Sea - National Marine Fisheries
Surveys,  the closest species to your request were:

1)Dasycottus <setiger> Bean,1890- (Spinyhead sculpin)

2)<Icelus> spiniger Gilbert,1896-(Thorny sculpin) of roughly seven
species common in the N. Pacific.

3) Icelinus has about 8 species common to the same area. None of
which would fall into your "extremely rare" category, since they tend to
be fairly common in certain parts of Alaskan waters. Icelinus=from the
Greek Hicelos, meaning "God of sleep".
