Mike Kostka’s Reputation As Offensive-Defensemen Warranted

After appearing in nine games with the Chicago Blackhawks Mike Kostka was released. He was claimed by the Lightning on February 23rd and made his debut with the Bolts on March 1st.

While playing in the AHL he was considered a top-tier offensive-defensemen and he seems to be filling that role nicely with the Lightning.  In his seven games with the club he has registered five points (2 goals, 3 assists).
