The University of Maine Black Bears and senior assistant captain Mike Lundin, fresh off their road sweep of traditional powerhouse North Dakota, are now No.1 in both US College Hockey polls. Maine is 5-0 on the year and received 34 of 40 first place votes in the USCHO.com/CSTV Division I men's poll and 31 of 34 in the USA Today/America Hockey poll. The Bears moved up from No.4 in both polls last week. Lundin, a 2004 4th round pick, has 1 goal and 2 assists on the year. The defenseman is receiving quality ice time this year as you'd expect from a senior and is a fixture on the power play. He had 3 goals and 13 assists as a junior.
The Johnstown Tribune-Democrat reports the Springfield Falcons have recalled forward Andre Deveaux after he scored a goal Sunday for the Chiefs at Trenton, and defenseman Jay Rosehill was returned to the AHL after Saturdayâ€™s win. Chief forwards Randy Rowe and Adam Henrich are injured and doubtful for tonight's game, Chiefs coach Frank Anzalone said.
