For the Mariners, Kile scored 13 goals and added seven assists in 22 games in 2018-19. He has previous ECHL experience with Cincinnati (2017-18) and has AHL time with the Rochester Americans, who signed him to his first pro deal in March 2017 after he finished at the University of Michigan. Kile was the Wolverines Captain in his senior season. He’s also a former USHL Clark Cup Champion with the Green Bay Gamblers in 2011-12.
