On this episode of the "House of Hockey" Podcast, host Rae talks with Connor Doherty, the captain of the ECHL Maine Mariners, to delve into the world of hockey in Portland, Maine.

As captain for all three seasons with the Mariners, Doherty brings a wealth of experience to the ice, sporting the coveted 'C' and proudly wearing the number 28. But it's not just about leadership; Doherty's defensive prowess is evident, with a notable 113 penalty minutes this season alone. Rae dives into what it's like to embrace the physical side of the game and whether Doherty enjoys his time in the penalty box.

Doherty and the Mariners fought their way into the Kelly Cup Playoffs, only to face disappointment in a first-round exit at the hands of the Adirondack Thunder. Hear Doherty's thoughts on the highs and lows of playoff hockey.

Beyond the rink, Doherty's impact extends into the community, earning him the ECHL's prestigious "Community Service Award" for the 2019-20 season. But it's not all serious business; Doherty shares the unexpected story behind his two missing front teeth and some memorable prank stories from his time in the league.

And with seven years in the ECHL under his belt, Doherty reflects on the balancing act of being both a dedicated hockey player and a devoted father. From the perks to the challenges, he shares insights into the unique journey of navigating life on and off the ice.

Born in Holden, Massachusetts, and honing his skills with the Boston Junior Bruins, Doherty's journey to the ECHL captaincy is a testament to his passion for the game. Join Rae and Connor Doherty for a candid conversation that goes beyond the game and into the heart of hockey in Portland and beyond.
