PORTLAND, Maine – The Maine Mariners have agreed to a contract with defenseman Michael Kim for the 2021-22 season. Kim enters his third full season in pro hockey, playing last season for the Jacksonville Icemen.

Kim’s first professional contract came with the American Hockey League’s Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins in 2019. After playing two games for the Pens at the end of the 2018-19 season, he skated in 21 games the following year. That season, he also got his first taste of the ECHL, playing 20 games with the Wheeling Nailers posting nine points (1g-8a). In 23 career games with Wilkes-Barre Scranton, Kim had 3 assists.

Last season, Kim signed with the Jacksonville Icemen. He suited up in 70 of their 72 regular-season games and had a very productive season, scoring 22 points (3g-19a).

Prior to turning pro, Kim played at Boston College, where he led all Eagles defensemen in scoring as a junior and a senior. He was also the team captain during the 2017-18 campaign. Over four collegiate seasons, Kim posted 62 points (14g-48a) in 140 games.
