Dougherty Assigned to the Ads
Milwaukee, WI--Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has assigned 2014 second-round selection Jack Dougherty to Milwaukee.
Dougherty recently completed his first season of junior hockey with the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks, where he ranked second among WHL rookie defensemen in points (11g-41a-52pts), seventh among all rookies in points, tied for 13th among all league defensemen, and tied for 16th among all skaters in power-play assists (21). The 6-foot-1, 194-pound blueliner joined the Winterhawks after spending the 2014-15 season at the University of Wisconsin, and the 2013-14 season with the U.S. National Team Development Program. A native of St. Paul, Minn., Dougherty helped the United States win its fifth gold medal in a six-year span at the Under-18 World Championship in 2014, and led Team USA to a silver medal at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka Tournament.
Nashville's third choice, 51st overall (second round), in the 2014 Entry Draft, Dougherty played two seasons of Minnesota High School hockey with St. Thomas Academy in 2012-13 and 2013-14 and helped the Cadets capture their third consecutive Class A state title in 2013.

Dougherty will join the Admirals in Charlotte as they continue a four-game road trip on Saturday night. The Admirals return home to host Chicago Tues., Apr. 12 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
