Mike Kostka Continues Solid Two-Way Play For Lightning

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).



I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
