MARINERS ACQUIRE MACKENZIE DWYER FROM JACKSONVILLE

PORTLAND, ME – September 12, 2023 – The Maine Mariners announced on Tuessday, that they have acquired defenseman Mackenzie Dwyer from the Jacksonville Icemen in exchange for cash considerations. Dwyer will join his fourth ECHL team as he enters his third professional season.

A native of Winnpeg, MB, the 26-year-old Dwyer made his ECHL debut with the Norfolk Admirals in the 2021-22 season, and ended up playing 32 games with them, posting nine points (one goal, eight assists).

The 6’3, 200-pound defenseman began last season in the Southern Professional Hockey League, with the Birmingham Bulls, but earned a pair ECHL call ups – first to the Fort Wayne Komets, and then Jacksonville. He appeared in 37 games between the two teams, with one goal and six assists – all with the Icemen.

Dwyer also spent the 2020-21 season with Birmingham, which was his first in the United States. He played a length junior hockey career in Canada, including stops in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League and the Western Hockey League. He was a two-time MJHL champion with the Portage Terriers, where he also served as an alternate captain in 2017-18. Dwyer also played a season for the University of Manitoba (USports).

“We’re excited to add Mackenzie to our back end,” said Terrence Wallin, Mariners Head Coach and General Manager. “His simple, hard style mixed with his size is something that will be valuable for us throughout the year.”

The current Mariners 2023-24 preseason roster can be viewed here. Training camp will begin in mid-October, commencing with a pair of preseason games against the Worcester Railers on October 13th and 14th. The game on the 13th will be the Mariners “home” game, at the Norway Savings Bank Arena in Auburn, ME at 7 PM.
