The Sarnia Sting have signed 16-year-old forward Sean Doherty to an Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Standard Player Agreement.

Doherty was selected by the Sting, 45th overall, in the 2022 OHL Priority Selection.

He spent the 2021-22 season with the Ajax-Pickering Raiders U16 AAA club.

The 5’10” right-shooting centre tallied 21 goals and 14 assists through 26 Eastern AAA Hockey League games this season, and put up four goals and four assists in six playoff appearances.

Sting Ontario Scout Mike Neely said Doherty will be a welcome addition to the team.

“We couldn’t be more excited to get Doherty’s combination of speed, skill, and compete,” said Neely. “He’s an exciting player to watch and one that made his teammates better all year.”

General Manager Dylan Seca welcomed Doherty to the organization.

“Sean is a competitive player, who skates very well and has the tools to be an impactful player in our league,” said Seca. “He’s also a player who’s committed both on and off the ice. Heading into the draft our scouts loved his speed and passion. We are thrilled to have him signed to his Standard Player Agreement and welcome him, as well as his family, to the Sarnia Sting organization.”
