Lehigh Valley, PA – The Lehigh Valley Phantoms have announced they have recalled forward Alex Kile from the Maine Mariners of the ECHL.
Kile, 28, played in 27 games with the Phantoms after signing with the team on January 14, 2022. He scored his first goal as a Phantom just two days later on January 16, 2022 against the Toronto Marlies. Kile scored four goals and had three assists for seven points for the Phantoms in 2021-22. He also played in 11 games for the Maine Mariners of the ECHL where he scored 9-9-18.
Kile was used on the power play and proved to be a valuable depth option for Ian Laperrière’s contingent.
The Troy, Mich. native and former University of Michigan captain has played in 78 career games in the AHL with Lehigh Valley, Laval, Hartford, Utica and Rochester scoring a combined 12 goals with six assists for 18 points.
Kile has also played in 205 career games in the ECHL scoring 78 goals with 90 assists for 168 points. In 2018, he was the first player signed in the franchise history of the new Maine Mariners where he played for current Phantoms assistant coach Riley Armstrong. He has also seen ECHL stints with the Florida Everblades and Cincinnati Cyclones. Kile was second on the Florida Everblades in scoring in 2020-21 with a career-high 25 goals and 51 points helping the Everblades to the Brabham Cup regular season crown.
With the Michigan Wolverines from 2013-17, Kile played in 130 career NCAA games scoring 40-40-80 over his four seasons in Ann Arbor.
