The Ryerson Rams announced via Twitter (@RyersonRamsMHKY) on Thursday that Niagara IceDogs forward Jackson Doherty has committed to their men’s hockey program for the 2021-22 season.
An overage winger from Ancaster, Ont., Doherty recorded 15 points (7-8–15) over 57 games with the IceDogs in 2019-20. He’s collected 38 points (20-18–38) over 176 career regular season games between Niagara and Owen Sound after being the Attack’s third round (43rd overall) pick in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection.
Doherty, who will study Criminology next fall, becomes Ryerson’s first recruit for the 2021-22 season. The Rams skated to a 20-8 record in 2019-20, finishing second in the OUA West Division.
