"Mike has an excellent presence. He seems to stay within himself and make most plays easy. He has an uncanny ability to get the puck through traffic to the net from the point. His skating has improved, but still needs a little work. He is, however, a highly-conditioned athlete." -- UMass Head Coach Don Cahoon.
