Mavericks Sign Teddy Doherty to Standard Player Contract

April 9, 2016 - ECHL (ECHL) - Kansas City Mavericks News Release

INDEPENDENCE, MISSOURI - The Missouri Mavericks have signed defenseman Teddy Doherty to a standard player contract (SPC) ahead of their final regular-season match-up Saturday evening in Boise, Idaho.

The Hopkinton, MA native joins the Mavericks from Boston College (NCAA) where he served as captain of the Eagles his senior season, scoring 13 goals and 13 assists through 40 games. Boston advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four this season, but fell just short of a trip to the national championship game with a 3-2 loss to the Quinnipiac Bobcats on Thursday evening.

"Doherty is a true two-way player with a good eye for the ice," said Richard Matvichuk, Head Coach & Director of Hockey Operations for the Missouri Mavericks. "He's coming to us fresh from a great season with Boston College, and we are excited to bring him into our locker room."

Doherty will wear number 22 for the Mavericks tonight in Idaho.

The Mavs own the top spot in the ECHL with 107 points, and have already earned home ice advantage throughout the 2016 Kelly Cup Playoffs by clinching the Brabham Cup as regular-season point champions. Missouri will play their first post-season games on Saturday, Apr. 16 (7:05p.m.) and Sunday, Apr. 17 (4:05p.m.) at Silverstein Eye Centers Arena. Tickets for Game 1 and Game 2 are on sale now at and in-person at the arena box office.

All eight Western Conference post-season berths were locked up on Friday evening, with the Quad City Mallards solidifying themselves in the 2016 Kelly Cup Playoffs in their win over the Cincinnati Cyclones. The Missouri Mavericks first round opponent has not been determined, as seeding in the Western Conference is yet to be finalized.

The Mavericks close out their regular season schedule this evening with another game against the Idaho Steelheads at 8:10p.m. (CDT). Fans can catch all the action from one of the Mavericks official watch party locations: Rock & Brews (Overland Park, KS), The Blue Line (Kansas City, MO), or Drumm Farm Gold Club (Independence, MO).
