GROPP, RACINE HEADED TO AHL

PORTLAND, ME – December 11, 2019 – Two Mariners players are AHL bound, the team announced on Wednesday. Forward Ryan Gropp has been recalled to the Hartford Wolf Pack by the New York Rangers and defenseman Jonathan Racine has been loaned to the AHL’s Stockton Heat. Both players already have significant AHL experience

Gropp, 23, is a second round draft pick of the Rangers in 2015, and was reassigned to the Mariners in early November. In 10 games for Maine, Gropp has scored three goals with four assists. He spent nearly all of the prior two seasons in Hartford, playing 59 games there in 2017-18 and 61 last season – with a brief eight game stint in Maine. Gropp has registered 47 career points (25 goals, 22 assists) in 121 career AHL games.

Racine, a 26-year-old defenseman is in his first

season with the Mariners, but has played 268 career games in the AHL since turning pro in 2013, including a full season with the Portland Pirates in 2015-16. A native of Montreal, QC, Racine signed a standard pla

yer contract with the Mariners in the offseason after spending the 2018-19 season with the Brampton Beast. Racine has also seen ECHL time with the Manchester Monarchs, but played the rest of his pro career at the AHL level, in San Antonio, Portland, St. John’s, Syracuse, Ontario, and Belleville. Racine was drafted in 2011 by the Florida Panthers in the third round. In 15 games for the Mariners this season, Racine has six assists and a team-leading 35 penalty minutes.
