The New Hampshire Junior Monarchs are pleased to announce that forward and captain Pat Doherty has committed to St. Lawrence University for the fall of 2011.
Doherty had narrowed his decision down to St. Lawrence and Union but in the end Doherty felt that St. Lawrence was the best fit for him both athletically and academically. “The coaching staff at St. Lawrence really made me feel comfortable in making my decision. Coach Marsh has a reputation that is unmatched, and Coaches Hurlbut and Prier really impressed me with their professionalism and love for the program”, stated Doherty. He would go on to say, “I feel as though I’ll really continue to develop as both a player and a person with a coaching staff like the one present here at St. Lawrence.”
Head Coach and GM of the Monarchs, Sean Tremblay had this to say about Doherty, “Patrick is one of those complete players. He’s a tremendous skater with excellent acceleration. He also has excellent hands, and sees the ice tremendously well. He’s a heady player who can score goals.” Tremblay would go on to say, “Pat’s also our captain – and with good reason. He does everything the right way.”
Doherty currently has 10 points in 10 games for the 8-1-1 Monarchs, who are currently at the top of the EJHL’s Northern Division and tied for number 1 in the Overall standings.
