PORTLAND, Maine – The Maine Mariners announced that they have signed defenseman Connor Doherty for the 2023-24 season. Doherty has served as the Mariners' captain each of the last two seasons.

Doherty was named the second captain in Mariners history prior to the start of the 2021-22 season and has worn the “C” ever since. With the Mariners, he’s enjoyed the best two seasons of his professional career. In 2021-22, he posted a career-high 22 points in 62 games. This past season, he appeared in 64 games, and scored a personal best four goals, to go along with 12 assists. He also scored his first career playoff goal in Game 4 of the North Division Semifinals vs. Reading.

During the 2022-23 season, Doherty set the team record for penalty minutes, both for a single season (143) and in a career (236).

A native of Holden, Massachusetts, Doherty first joined the Mariners in the summer of 2021, when he was traded across the New England rivalry from the Worcester Railers to Maine. He spent the first three seasons of his professional career in Worcester, from 2017-2020, and won the ECHL’s “Community Service Award” for the 2019-20 season. He played the 2020-21 campaign with the Kansas City Mavericks, before returning to Worcester and being dealt to Maine. Prior to turning pro, Doherty spent three seasons at Sacred Heart University.
