    Doherty is officially gone. Off to Penn State for next season.

    Tough loss for the team and the community. I guess you can say it was expected, but it's tough to see a guy pass up on another year at Maine to play somewhere else.
    Tough loss for Maine but Iím glad he didnít end up at another hockey East school. Great player for us and did some amazing stuff in the community. Best wishes to him.

      Yup, good luck to him. Probably a good move for his hockey career, exposure to big ten and midwest hockey will offer something additional.
      Id probably want to get away from Reds system and style of play.

        Guys used to turn pro after 3 years now they turn to other schools? Whats the advantage? I dont get it. If you want to leave, sign.

        Grad school? Some advanced degree?

        Maine Hockey: I want to believe
        43-21-4 (.662) in games I attended over 4 years as a student
        104-47-14 (.669) in that time
        3x FROZEN FOUR

        11-20-2 in games I've attended since. (2-2-1 under Red)

            Doherty leaving with a year of eligibility left and not signing with a professional team speaks volumes. It appears that he doesn't have much faith in Maine's performance next season and wants to be with a potential winner. A team that could possibly return to the NCAA tournament would give him more exposure and a better chance to sign a pro contract.

              Yeah definitely not a great look for the program but I donít think it was due to his lack of faith in Maine next year. With him and Tralmaks back I figured they would put together a decent season.
              I took a couple classes with him at Maine and perceived him to be a pretty good student. It could have to do with him looking to life after hockey. I donít see him as someone with real nhl potential even though heís a great college player. Penn state has a great business school and should provide him with great opportunities outside of hockey.
              Honestly I thought this was his senior year up until a couple weeks ago so Iím not super bent out of shape about it. Letís just hope Tralmaks isnít next.

                Academically. PennState UMaine. Not a tough decision especially when he started at Brown

                  I seriously, seriously doubt that NCAA Fall/Winter sports will be played next season. This sh*t is growing exponentially, even in the Podunks. Might back off for the Summer a bit, but I think it'll get a lot worse than this in the Fall.

                    So play your fourth year, join the 100 pt club, be captain, finish what you started and had taken away this year. A top line guy transferring while wearing an A, thats a new one

                      He is certainly a good student if he was admitted to Brown. I get the Maine vs. Penn State comparison, but Maine does have a good business school if that is what he is interested in pursuing. Good luck to him. I suspect he was being offered more than what Maine was willing or able to give him.
