RI Native Staying Close to Home

Marlboro, MA - Junior Bruins forward Tim Doherty, playing on the B’s Premier team in the USPHL, has informed the staff at Brown University that he will joining the Bears for the 2015 season. Doherty joined the Bruins midway thru the opening month and quickly established himself as an offensive leader posting a 8-8-16, +11 line in his first 15 games.

For Doherty, a Portsmouth RI native, the decision to go with the Bears was an easy one. “Brown felt like the perfect fit for me. I wanted to go to a school that would provide me with a great education and four great years of hockey. It’s also close to home for me so it’s easy for my family to come support me”.

Head coach and General Manager Peter Masters quickly noticed the impact Doherty had on the lineup and knew it wouldn’t be long before he was committed at the Division I level. “Tim is smart hockey player. He has a team first attitude and competes hard every shift. We’re excited for him and his family. Brown is a great spot for him”.

Doherty will look to continue his strong season as the Bruins currently sit in first place in the USPHL Premier division, just one point clear of the New Jersey Hitmen as the season approaches the holiday break. Doherty’s looking forward to competing for a championship with his teammates, “Coming to the Bruins has been nothing but positive for me. We’ve got a great group of guys and a talented team. Couldn’t be happier to be here”.

The B’s will next be in action November 16th as they take on the South Shore Kings at the New England Sports Center.
