Mariners bring back Doherty

PORTLAND, Maine –The Maine Mariners announced that defenseman and captain Connor Doherty will return for a second year. Doherty was named the second captain in Mariners team history last fall and helped lead them to their first ever playoff appearance.

The Mariners originally acquired Doherty last July in a trade from the Worcester Railers, where he spent the first three seasons of his professional career. Now on the other side of the rivalry, he skated in 62 games for the Mariners in 2021-22, putting up 22 points (2g-20a) while setting career highs in all three offensive categories. Doherty added three assists in six playoff games, as the Mariners faced off against the Reading Royals in their first ever postseason series.

Doherty is a New England native, hailing from Holden, Massachusetts. The 29-year-old played his college hockey at Sacred Heart University from 2014-17. The Mariners are his third ECHL team – as he spent the 2020-21 season with the Kansas City Mavericks.
