CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — Jordan Maher is changing teams and leagues next season but not the city where he plays.
The 21-year-old Gander, N.L., native has committed to playing for the UPEI Panthers of the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) hockey conference this fall after finishing his major junior career with the Charlottetown Islanders on March 31.
"I think it's a good fit for me," Maher said. "I've enjoyed my few months on the Island, playing with the Islanders, and really enjoyed the City of Charlottetown."
Maher spent the first four seasons of his Quebec Major Junior Hockey League career with the Acadie-Bathurst Titan before being traded to the Halifax Mooseheads at the 2018 draft. Maher was part of the Islanders' return for Keith Getson in a deal of overage forwards on Dec. 22.
Maher said he was considering UPEI before the trade but acknowledged it had an impact in his decision.
