MARINERS BRING BACK FORWARD GREG CHASE

PORTLAND, ME – July 28, 2021 – Forward Greg Chase has signed a contract with the Maine Mariners for the 2021-22 season. Chase has been a big part of each of the Mariners first two seasons, and ranks fourth in career point scoring for the franchise.

Chase originally came to the Mariners from the Allen Americans in a mid-season trade in December of 2018. The Mariners were Chase’s third team that season, after playing for the Wichita Thunder and Allen. He found a home in Maine, registering over a point per game through the end of the season. In 41 games, he scored 21 goals and added 21 assists. His combined 51 points between the three teams, ranked him third on the Mariners leaderboard. Late in the season, Chase was loaned to the Hartford Wolf Pack in the AHL, where he appeared in five games.

His strong season earned Chase a contract with the Wolf Pack in the summer of 2019. He played the majority of the season with the Mariners, however. In 42 games in Maine, Chase scored 10 goals and added 18 assists. He also played three games in Hartford.

“I’m very excited to be returning to Maine. It was a comfortability thing all along,” said Chase. “The culture that Riley set in Maine from the start was something that I love to be a part of and the dressing room and the whole experience playing in Portland has been awesome and it has felt fun. I just wanted that feeling again. It’s something you don’t get outside of hockey.”

Chase, 26, is a native of Sherwood Park, Alberta. He played his junior hockey in the Western Hockey League, primarily for the Calgary Hitmen. He was drafted in 2013 by his hometown team, the Edmonton Oilers, in the 7th round, 188th overall. He made his professional debut in the 2013-14 season with the AHL’s Oklahoma City Barons and has played over 100 games in AHL between OKC, Hartford, the Bakersfield Condors, and the Springfield Thunderbirds. He has also played 166 career ECHL games between Maine, Wichita, Allen, and the Norfolk Admirals.

Greg is the nephew of former NHL winger and tough guy Kelly Chase, and did not play during the 2020-21 season. He joins defensemen Brycen Martin and Michael Doherty on the announced roster for 2021-22.

The Mariners are now proud affiliates of the Boston Bruins and begin their 2021-22 season, presented by Hannaford To Go on October 22nd, with the home opener against the Worcester Railers, sponsored by Skowhegan Savings. The full schedule can be found here.

MARINERS ACQUIRE DOHERTY FROM RAILERS

PORTLAND, ME – July 22, 2021 – The Maine Mariners have acquired defenseman Connor Doherty from the Worcester Railers, the team announced on Thursday, in exchange for future considerations.

Doherty, 28, has spent his entire four year professional career in the ECHL. His rookie season came in 2017-18, Worcester’s first in the league. He scored one goal and added four assists in 40 games, also registering 49 penalty minutes. His role increased over the next two seasons, playing in 52 games for the Railers in 2018-19 and 51 in 2019-20. The 2019-20 season was the best of his career offensively, with 11 points – all assists. After the North Division opted out of the 2020-21 season, Doherty signed with the Kansas City Mavericks. In 40 games, he had one goal, three assists, and 42 penalty minutes. He was a +11.

A native of Holden, Massachusetts, Doherty played in the Boston Jr. Bruins program for five years, making his way up to the USPHL Premier level, winning a championship in 2014. He went on to attend Sacred Heart University (Fairfield, Connecticut), where he played three seasons, serving as Alternate Captain in his final year of 2016-17.

Doherty has a reputation for being a force in the community as well. In 2019-20, he was awarded the ECHL Community Service Award. With the Railers, he was involved in the “Skate to Success” program, the Friendly House of Worcester’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, and the Adopt-a-Student golf tournament.

MARINERS SIGN DEFENSEMAN BRYCEN MARTIN

PORTLAND, ME – July 13, 2021 – The Maine Mariners officially added the first player to their 2021-22 roster on Tuesday, announcing the signing of defenseman Brycen Martin. The 25-year-old blue liner was on the Mariners roster in 2018-19, where he enjoyed a career-best season.

“That inaugural season was the most enjoyable year of hockey I’ve had and it was a no brainer to try and get myself back there,” said Martin. “The organization treats the players so professionally and the city of Portland is so beautiful as well!”

Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Martin was selected in the 3rd round of the 2014 NHL Draft by the Buffalo Sabres. He saw sporadic time with their AHL affiliate, the Rochester Americans between 2015 and 2017, and also played for Buffalo’s ECHL affiliates, the Elmira Jackals (2016-17) and then the Cincinnati Cyclones (2017-18).

Martin was assigned to the Mariners for the 2018-19 season and spent the entire campaign in Maine. He led all Mariners defenseman in scoring as he posted 28 points (7 goals, 21 assists) in 54 games. He was also third on the team in penalty minutes, with 79.

“Bringing Brycen back into the fold, I think he’s going to be a big part of our D corps core this year,” said Mariners Head Coach & Assistant General Manager Riley Armstrong. “Going into his fifth year pro, there are going to be a lot of responsibilities on him. We’re going to look for him to be a leader away from the rink but also at the rink too and we’re expecting big things from him to continue his career into his future.”

For the 2019-20 season, Martin initially signed an ECHL deal with the Fort Wayne Komets and appeared in 29 games, before being traded to the Norfolk Admirals in January of 2020. He totaled four goals and ten assists 47 games between the two teams. The Mariners hosted Norfolk in the last game prior to the 2019-20 season cancellation on March 10th, 2020 – with Martin in the lineup for the Admirals.

Most recently, Martin played in Poland during the 2020-21 season, where he was a member of GKS Tychy, of Polska Hokej Liga. He played in ten regular season games, scoring one goal and adding four assists. He also appeared in ten playoff contests, with one goal and two assists.

Martin, 25 years old, played most of his junior hockey in the Western Hockey League, with the Swift Current Broncos, Saskatoon Blades, and Everett Silvertips.

The Mariners are now proud affiliates of the Boston Bruins and begin their 2021-22 season, presented by Hannaford To Go on October 22nd, with the home opener against the Worcester Railers, sponsored by Skowhegan Savings. The full schedule can be found here.

MARINERS ANNOUNCE AFFILIATION AGREEMENT WITH BOSTON BRUINS

PORTLAND, ME – June 30, 2021 – The Maine Mariners Hockey Club announced a new affiliation agreement on Wednesday, becoming the ECHL affiliate of the Boston Bruins. The Mariners had previously been affiliated with the New York Rangers since they joined the ECHL in 2018.

The affiliation agreement with the Bruins completes the “trifecta” of Portland-Boston affiliations, with the Portland Sea Dogs and Maine Celtics (formerly Maine Red Claws) having existing agreements with the Boston Red Sox and Boston Celtics, respectively. Boston is less than a two hours drive from Portland, and the Bruins fanbase makes up the majority of the NHL rooting-interest in the state of Maine.

“We are extremely excited to be affiliated with the Bruins organization and we’re proud to solidify the Boston-Portland connection with all three of Maine’s professional sports franchises,” said Mariners President Danny Briere. “We can’t wait to bring live hockey action back to Portland this fall, and we know that Mariners fans will be thrilled to watch players from the Bruins organization playing right here in Maine.”

The Mariners will be affiliated with the Providence Bruins at the AHL level. Ironically, Providence represents the original Maine Mariners AHL franchise. The AHL’s Mariners were Bruins affiliates from 1987 until 1992, when the franchise was relocated to Rhode Island.

The Boston Bruins are the oldest NHL franchise based in the United States, founded in 1924. Like the Rangers, they are one of the “original six” NHL teams. They are six-time Stanley Cup Champions, most recently in 2011.

“The Boston Bruins are excited to establish an affiliation agreement with the Maine Mariners of the ECHL,” said Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney. “The Bruins and Maine Mariners have a long player development history, as well as having a passionate fan base in Portland and throughout the state of Maine. We are looking forward to building a strong working relationship with Comcast Spectacor, Daniel Briere, and the coaching staff of the Mariners.”

The Bruins have had an ECHL affiliate since 1991. They’ve partnered up with the Johnstown Chiefs (1991-93, 2007-08), Charlotte Checkers (1993-94, 1995-98), Greenville Grrrowl (2001-02), Reading Royals (2009-12), South Carolina Stingrays (2012-15), and most recently, the Gwinnett/Atlanta Gladiators (2015-20). The Mariners will represent their geographically closest ECHL affiliate.

To commemorate this new partnership, limited edition Mariners throwback t-shirts, with the AHL throwback logo in the black and gold Bruins color scheme, are now on sale at the Mariners Team Store.

The Mariners 2021-22 season, presented by Hannaford To Go, begins on October 22nd, with the home opener against the Worcester Railers, presented by Skowhegan Savings. The full schedule can be found here. Full season, half season, 12-game mini plans, and 10-ticket flex plans, as well as group tickets are available now. All new and existing full and half season ticket holders who make a deposit by August 1st are eligible to receive an exclusive Mariners jacket (full) or hooded sweatshirt. (half) For a limited time, ticket package deposits are just $19.92. Single game tickets will go on sale in September.

MARINERS ANNOUNCE 2021-22 SCHEDULE

PORTLAND, ME – May 11, 2021 – The Maine Mariners announced their 2021-22 schedule on Tuesday, marking their return to ECHL play after the COVID-19 pandemic halted play in March of 2020 and subsequently cancelled the entire 2020-21 campaign. The 2021-22 season, the Mariners’ third in the ECHL, is presented by Hannaford To Go. The full schedule can be viewed here.

As previously announced, the season will begin on Friday, October 22nd, when the Mariners host the Worcester Railers at the Cross Insurance Arena at 7:15 PM in the home opener, presented by Skowhegan Savings. That will be the front end of a home-and-home with the Railers to open the season, with the teams meeting at the DCU Center in Worcester on October 23rd. The Mariners play six of the first seven games of the season on home ice, hosting the new expansion franchise from Trois-Rivieres, Quebec on October 29th, and then welcoming in the Reading Royals for a Halloween afternoon game on October 31st. The homestand continues through mid-November with the first-ever contest against the Florida Everblades on November 5th and two more with Trois-Rivieres on November 12th and 14th. After a four game road trip to Florida, the Mariners finish the November home schedule with two games on either side of the Thanksgiving holiday – November 24th against Worcester and the 26th hosting the Newfoundland Growlers.

“The great hockey fans of Maine have been unbelievably patient over the last year, understanding that playing the 2020-21 season was not a realistic option for us,” said Mariners President Danny Briere. “To be able to welcome them back in the fall will hopefully make our return after the long wait that much sweeter. We look forward to putting another competitive team on the ice that will bring playoff hockey back to Portland and make a run at the Kelly Cup.”

The Mariners will once again compete in the North Division, which will include returning clubs Worcester, Reading, Newfoundland, and the Adirondack Thunder, all of whom also opted out of the 2020-21 season. The Brampton Beast announced in February that they were ceasing operations, and will be replaced in the division by the Trois-Rivieres franchise, which has not yet announced a team name.

Another highlight of the 2021-22 home schedule includes games on both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Trois-Rivieres is the opponent on December 31st, before Adirondack comes to town for the first game of 2022. January is the busiest home month of the schedule, with nine games at the Cross Insurance Arena.

In addition to Florida, two other South Division opponents will visit the Cross Insurance Arena in 2021-22. The Orlando Solar Bears come in for three games on January 21st, 22nd, and 23rd. The Mariners hosted Orlando in November of 2018, but haven’t seen the Solar Bears since. They’ll also visit Orlando in the first half of the season, playing a total of four games against the Bears. The South Carolina Stingrays, which have made trips to Portland in each of the Mariners’ first two seasons, visit once again for a pair of games on March 19th and 20th.

The season concludes in mid-April with a three game homestand against Reading (April 13th) and Newfoundland (April 15th and 16th).

The opponent breakdown for the season is as follows: Trois-Rivieres (15), Worcester and Adirondack (14), Newfoundland (13), Reading (6), and South Division opponents: Orlando (4), Jacksonville (3), South Carolina (2), and Florida (1).

Like previous seasons, all Friday home games will begin at 7:15 PM, Saturdays at 6:00, Sundays at 3:00, and Wednesdays at 7:00 PM. Two games (December 31st and January 30th) will begin at 5:00 PM, with the the puck dropping at 3:00 PM on December 29th.

The 2021-22 season is presented by Hannaford To Go. As presenting partners for the season, Hannaford will support the Mariners in virtually every aspect of the business throughout the season. The partnership is highlighted by Hannaford’s efforts to support the community with the “Hannaford To Go Kids Corner.” At each Mariners home game, Hannaford will donate 50 tickets to local youth and charitable organizations.

“Hannaford is excited to team up with the Maine Mariners this season as their loyal fans make their way back into the stadium,” said Jess Joyce, Regional Marketing Specialist for Hannaford. “Families and friends will finally enjoy reconnecting to do more of the things they love, and we are proud to further our community support efforts through our partnership.”

The ECHL is currently playing the 2020-21 season with 14 teams participating, and 12 having opted out, including the entire North Division. The regular season is slated to end on June 5th with the 2021 Kelly Cup to be awarded by July 3rd.

Fans can put down a deposit of $50 on full season tickets for the 2021-22 season here. Half season, 12-game mini plans, and 10-ticket flex plans are also available for purchase, starting at $170. Single game and group ticket information will be available in the coming months.

For six Saturdays in the months of February and March, Rogers offered his services to the public, sharpening skates and repairing equipment on a drive-up basis at the Cross Insurance Arena. He also raised funds through a prize raffle, which included items from the Mariners, University of Maine men’s ice hockey team, the Boston Bruins, Hartford Wolf Pack, and more. Jake also appeared at the Armstrong Skills Competition and Checking for Charity, and started a GoFundMe campaign. In total, $2772 was raised.

On Friday, April 23rd, Rogers and Keeley visited Portland restaurants: Mister Bagel (Congress St.), Marcy’s Diner, and The Porthole Restaurant and Pub, presenting $924 to each establishment. Video footage of all three surprise visits, including statements from staff members can be seen here.
