INDEPENDENCE, Mo. - The Kansas City Mavericks announced the signing of forward Darik Angeli and defenseman Connor Doherty Thursday.
Angeli, a six-foot-three, 203-pound, 30-year-old forward from Lakewood, Colorado joins the Mavericks after appearing in 51 games for the Cincinnati Cyclones last season. Last season, he totaled 39 points on nine goals and 30 assists for the Cyclones.
“Angeli brings a two-way forward that plays a solid 200-foot game, he is excellent through the middle and has play throughout the line-up,” Mavericks Head Coach Tad O’Had said. “He is an excellent penalty killer and very responsible in the DZ. He adds grit and size to our forward line-up. He is a product of The Ohio State University. Last season in Florida, in five games, he recorded seven points.”
Doherty, a six-foot-two, 194-pound, 27-year-old forward from Holden, Massachusetts joins the Mavericks after playing for the Worcester Railers for the last three seasons. In his ECHL career, Doherty has played in 148 games scoring two goals and compiling 24 assists for 26 points and 201 penalty minutes.
“Doherty was an assistant captain with the Worcester Railers and voted ‘Best Defensive Defenseman by the PHPA’ he is a no-nonsense rock steady d-man that prides himself on defending the opposition,” Coach O’Had said.
The Mavericks have traded forward Anthony Rinaldi to the Greenville Swamp Rabbits for forward Kamerin Nault.
“Kamerin Nault is a power forward that adds size, grit, skill, and an overall 200-foot honesty to our Mavs line-up,” Coach O’Had said. “I was continually impressed by Nault last season and believe he will be an excellent addition to our line-up.”
Goaltender Sean Bonar has been called up to the Tuscon Roadrunners of the American Hockey League.
