The Maine Mariners have announced their playoff roster since very recently clinching their playoff spot. This came during their last regular season game on Sunday, the 15th, against the Adirondack Thunder. Following an overtime win with a goal from Alex Kile, the Mariners were able to solidify their playoff spot, coming in 4th after a close race with the Worcester Railers (who inevitably did not make playoffs) and the Trois-Rivières Lions

#40 Shne Starrett

Roster Eligible

#22 Jimmy Lambert (Forward)

#35 Kyle Keyser (Goalie)

Starting with goaltending, Maine will have Brad Arvanitis and Shane Starrett between the posts. Additionally, Kyle Keyser is eligible for the Mariners’ playoff roster, but he is currently recalled to Providence and is still recovering from an injury. Cam Askew is on the roster, but he is also currently on injured reserve. He has an injury to his arm, and it’s unknown when he’ll be able to play actively again. It’s been questioned why he has been given a playoff spot as opposed to someone who didn’t make it since it may be likely he won’t play again this season. 

Of course, since there can only be a total of 24 players for a team’s playoff roster, that being 20 active and four reserve, some players have not made this roster. Defenseman Nathan Noel is notably missing from the roster. The forward has only one goal and four assists in 24 games, but Noel’s physical on-ice play is notable. The other Mariners who will not be playing in the playoffs are Alex Sheey, Jason Horvath, Garrett Ness, Gave Guertler, and Francois Brassard.

The Mariners will face the Adirondack Thunder, who are first in the division as well as conference, for the first round of playoffs. Their first game will be this Friday, the 19th, in Adirondack at 7:00pm.
