Mariners bring in rookie defenseman Jackson

PORTLAND, Maine – The Maine Mariners have added a defenseman to the 2020-21 roster, announcing the signing of rookie Ryan Jackson out of Manhattanville College.

Jackson served as captain for the Valiants in 2019-20 and posted double-figure point totals in his sophomore and senior seasons. He finished his collegiate career with 45 points (13g-32a) in 104 games. Jackson was a two time UCHC All-Academic Team selection as a junior and a season. He was also named Middle Atlantic Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2017-18.

Jackson, a native of Montreal, Quebec, is already familiar with Portland, having played for the Portland Jr. Pirates of the United States Premier Hockey League during the 2014-15 season. He played 44 games for the Premier squad and two games at the Elite level.

Jackson went on to spend his final season of junior hockey in the Central Canada Hockey League with the Hawkesbury Hawks in 2015-16, before joining Manhattanville. At the end of Manhattanville’s 2019-20 season, Jackson signed with the Fayetteville Marksmen of the Southern Professional Hockey League, and appeared in five games. He is the son of former longtime NHL referee Dave Jackson.
