PORTLAND, Maine –Forward Alex Kile is back with the  Maine Mariners for the 2021-22 season. Kile returns to Maine for his third season, after spending 2020-21 with the Florida Everblades. Kile was the first-ever Mariners player signed, originally joining the roster in the summer of 2018.

A 27-year-old forward from Troy, Michigan, Kile has played professional hockey since the end of the 2016-17 season, after captaining the University of Michigan program. He spent his first two years with the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League, and their ECHL affiliate, the Cincinnati Cyclones. The 2017-18 season was Kile’s first extended look in the pros, when he skated in 46 regular-season games and five playoff contests for Cincinnati. He posted 28 points (15g-13a) in those 46 regular-season games.

In June of 2018, the Mariners announced Kile as their first signing in club history. He scored a goal in the team’s inaugural game against the Adirondack Thunder on Oct. 13, 2018 and later scored the game-winner in the first-ever victory on Oct. 21, 2018 against the Newfoundland Growlers. Kile skated in 22 games with the Mariners, scoring 20 points (13g-7a). He was loaned to three AHL teams during the season: the Utica Comets, Hartford Wolf Pack and Laval Rocket. 

Kile spent the entire 2019-20 season with the Mariners, leading the team with 51 points (16g-35a) in 57 games.

After the Mariners opted out of the 2020-21 season, Kile signed with the Florida Everblades. He enjoyed another productive season, putting up another 51 points (25g-26a) in 69 games. 

Through two seasons of the Mariners history, Kile ranks third in career points (71) and assists (42). He’s also fourth in goals (29) and tied for second in game-winning goals (7).
