The Maine Mariners have announced that they have sent the rights to forward Reid Stefanson to the Savannah Ghost Pirates to complete the deadline-day deal that sent forward Sebastian Vidmar to the Mariners. Vidmar found his game once, arriving in Maine, putting up three goals and five assists for eight points in 12 games before suffering a season-ending hand injury. The Swedish forward has played 210 games putting up 55 goals and 78 assists for 133 points as he’s spent time with the Norfolk Admirals, Adirondack Thunder, Savannah Ghost Pirates, and Maine Mariners. Stefanson has spent his entire three-year career in the ECHL, where he’s scored 34 goals and 39 assists in 100 regular-season games with the Mariners; he added one goal and two assists in 12 Kelly Cup Playoff Games. The 27-year-old forward left the Mariners to play in Austria, where he scored two goals and six assists for eight points in 13 games with Vienna.

Maine’s other future consideration deadline included the Mariners getting the rights to Felix Pare from the Wheeling Nailers, completing the trade that sent William Provost to the Nailers in March. The 24-year-old forward has spent the last three seasons in the ECHL, all with the Nailers putting up 12 goals and 23 assists for 35 points in 120 games before heading overseas to the UK to play with the Nottingham Panthers, where he put up four goals and four assists for eight points in 29 games. Provost has spent the last two seasons in the ECHL as he played for the Fort Wayne Komets, Allen Americans, Wheeling Nailers, and Maine Mariners during the 2023-24 season. He’s put up 11 goals and 20 assists for 31 points in 59 regular season games and added one goal in four games during the 2023 Kelly Cup Playoffs.
