ALEX KILE REASSIGNED TO MAINE
PORTLAND, ME – December 6, 2022 – The Mariners received a major reinforcement on Tuesday, as forward Alex Kile was reassigned to Maine from the American Hockey League’s Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Kile has played for the Mariners in each season since the franchise began in 2018, splitting time between the AHL and ECHL.
Kile, 28, became the first player to sign with the Mariners in July of 2018 and went on to play 22 games for them in the inaugural season. He spent the remainder of that season with three AHL teams: Utica, Hartford, and Laval. He would play all of 2019-20 in Maine, leading the team with 51 points in 57 games. Last season, he appeared in 11 games for the Mariners, and put up 18 points, earning a contract with Lehigh Valley along the way. He skated in 27 games for the Phantoms, returning to Maine for the playoffs. Kile re-signed with Lehigh Valley over the summer, and has played in 15 games this season, registering two assists.
A native of Troy, Michigan, Kile captained the University of Michigan in his senior season of 2016-17. Additional ECHL stops in his career include Cincinnati and Florida, as well as Rochester in the AHL.
Kile ranks 2nd all-time on the Mariners career points, goals, and assists leaderboards. He’s 7th in career games played.
