The Fort McMurray Oil Barons are excited to announce the signing of defenseman Kyle Marsden for the 2023-2024 season.
Marsden, originally from Stephenville, NL, grew up playing hockey in Fort McMurray. The 6’3″ right shot defenseman played in 28 games for the Northern Alberta Xtreme Prep Program last season contributing 8 points (5 goals and 3 assists) while shutting down the competition. Marsden also suited up in two games for the MOB as an affiliate player last season.
“We are thrilled to have Kyle signed for next season. He is an absolute rig when he steps on the ice. He is an intimidating presence standing at 6’3, 210 lbs who plays mean, finishes checks, is hard to play against, and makes the oppositions life difficult. He is a player that has wanted to throw on the MOB colors since he was a young kid and by dedicating himself to his craft and working hard every day he has turned into a terrific defenseman. On top of that, we can’t say enough good things about Kyle as a person. He is always personable, polite, and is willing to put in the extra to make an impression. We are excited to see him at Summer Camp in June before he jets off in the fall with Wenatchee in the WHL. We fully expect him to make the jump, but if for whatever reason it doesn’t go that way, he will have a great landing spot at home here in Fort McMurray.”
The Oil Barons would like to welcome Kyle and his family to the organization.
