Marksmen sign Kyle Soper for the 2023-24 season

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – The Fayetteville Marksmen, proud members of the SPHL, have signed defenseman Kyle Soper for the 2023-24 season. 

Soper, 25, will be entering into his third SPHL season after spending the first two with the Macon Mayhem. The blueliner has had two ECHL call-ups, playing for the Greenville Swamp Rabbits and Tulsa Oilers. 

Kyle is an offensive defenseman that is consistent in all aspects of his game,” said Head Coach Ryan Cruthers. “He adds experience to our young team and will be a veteran presence in our locker room. 

The Waterloo, Ontario, native recorded 51 points (9G+42A) in 101 games with Macon and had one assist in three games for the Tulsa Oilers.
