PORTLAND, ME – January 19, 2024 – The Maine Mariners have received two players from the AHL’s Providence Bruins ahead of a three-game home weekend. Forward Adam Mechura and goaltender Kyle Keyser were both reassigned to Maine.
Mechura, 20, made his AHL debut last weekend, appearing in Providence’s home games against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Bridgeport on January 12th and 14th. With the Mariners, the rookie forward is the third leading scorer on the team this season, with 22 points (9 goals, 13 assists) in 29 games. Mechura, a native of Czechia, was signed by Providence out of the Western Hockey League’s Tri-City Americans this past October.
Keyser, 23, has gone up and down between Maine and Providence since his initial reassignment in late December. In three games with the Mariners, he has a record of 2-0-1 with a 3.32 goals-against average, a .903 save percentage, and one shutout. Keyser suffered an overtime loss on January 13th at Hartford in his most recent AHL appearance for Providence. Keyser is on an NHL contract with Boston and is in his fifth season in the Bruins organization.
The Mariners are home all weekend long against the Reading Royals. It’s a $3 Deweys “Threekend” starting on Friday with “Country Night” presented by UNUM, featuring Canadian Tuxedo specialty uniforms and a denim can koozie giveaway to the first 1,000 fans. Game time is 7:15 PM. Saturday’s game is “Star Wars Night” at 6 PM, and the Threekend concludes on Sunday afternoon with “Comedy Day” at 3 PM.
