VIZZO SIGNS WITH MARINERS, KILE RETURNS

PORTLAND, ME – February 22, 2023 – The Maine Mariners announced the signing of another forward on Wednesday, bringing in Billy Vizzo from the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs of the Southern Professional Hockey League. Vizzo has prior ECHL experience with the Worcester Railers. In addition, forward Alex Kile has been reassigned to the Mariners from the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the AHL.

A 27-year-old forward from Shelton, CT, Vizzo is in his second season with Roanoke and is the team’s current goals leader. He has 31 points (17 goals, 14 assists) in 32 games for the Rail Yard Dawgs. Last season, he had 17 points in 25 games.

Vizzo was a huge performer at the USPHL Premier level, leading the league in scoring during the 2015-16 season, while playing for the P.A.L. Junior Islanders. He went on to play one season of NCAA DI college hockey for American International College, before transferring to the DIII level with Endicott, and then Curry College. In his final collegiate season of 2019-20, he served as an alternate captain for Curry, while leading the team with 15 goals.

At the end of the 2019-20 season, Vizzo signed with the Worcester Railers and appeared in three games, one of which was against the Mariners at the Cross Insurance Arena on March 8th, 2020. He had one assist in his stint with the Railers.

Alex Kile returns after a two-game recall to Lehigh Valley last week. On Saturday night, he scored two goals to help the Phantoms to a dramatic comeback win over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. For the Mariners this season, Kile has 26 points (11 goals, 15 assists) in 23 games, and has broken the Mariners career records for both points and goals.
