Mike Lundin: Improving and Optimistic

After starting the season with an undefeated run through their non-conference schedule and being ranked as high as #1 in the country, the Maine Black Bears (21-12-2), now ranked #14, struggled through the Hockey East schedule. The Black Bears finished fifth in the conference and failed to get home-ice advantage in the first round of the conference tournament, which opens this weekend with Maine against #15 Massachusetts.

Despite their rough road this season, defenseman Mike Lundin has continued his consistent play on the blue-line for the Black Bears, becoming a leader in the locker room. This has him optimistic about his future in hockey and with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
