Former Hound Durocher signs with Mavericks


On Tuesday, the ECHL’s Kansas City Mavericks have signed former Soo Greyhounds forward Corey Durocher for the 2018-2019 season.

Durocher, who began the 2017-2018 season with Brampton Beast, scored 2 goals in 10 games, before joining the Idaho Steelheads, where he had 2 goals and 8 points in 19 games.

He then finished off the 2017-2018 season with the Kansas City Mavericks, where he had 6 goals and 14 points in 21 games.

Back in the 2011 offseason, the Ottawa, Ontario native came over to the Greyhounds in a trade with the Kingston Frontenacs.

Kyle Dubas, who was just sworn in as the Hounds new general manager at that time, sent a second round pick in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection to Kingston in exchange for Durocher.

Durocher, who was selected in the 6th round (153rd overall) by the Florida Panthers in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, scored 16 goals and 31 points in 62 games with the Hounds during the 2011-2012 season.

The 29 year old began his ECHL career with the Brampton Beast during the 2016-2017 season.
