PORTLAND, Maine -The Maine Mariners announced the signing of rookie forward Jonathan Desbiens for the 2020-21 season.

A native of Montreal, Desbiens began his junior career in the United States Hockey League with the Lincoln Stars, playing in 48 games in 2013-14, with 10 points (6g-4a). From there he headed back to Canada and the British Columbia Hockey League, joining the West Kelowna Warriors. Of his two seasons in the BCHL, 2015-16 was his breakout campaign, as he put up 83 points (44g-39a) in 58 games, leading the Warriors and finishing sixth in the league scoring race. West Kelowna went on to win the BCHL Championship, as well as the RBC Cup (Canadian Junior A National Championship). Desbiens led all BCHL players in playoff goals, with 15.

The 24-year-old began his collegiate career in the 2016-17 season with Bentley University. He was immediately successful, posting 20 points as a freshman. He continued his point increase through his junior year of 2018-19, where he was an Atlantic Hockey Third Team All-Conference selection with 31 points in 35 games.
