The Ottawa Senators made headlines July 1 when they went out and signed Swedish Superstar Mats Sundin.... wait, no. That's not right. OOOH! Mike LUNDIN. Silly me.
Wait. Who is Mike Lundin?
Mike is a 28 year old defenceman from Apple Valley in the US of A. He went to the University of Maine before making it to the NHL after being selected in the 4th round by the Tampa Bay Lightning. His NHL resume is not shockingly impressive by any stretch of the imagination, but he is a veteran of 241 NHL games to go along with 18 playoff games and 80 games in the AHL.
From his numbers at the NHL level, you can tell he isn't a bruiser by any stretch of the imagination, racking up only 54 PIMs in his career. Nor is he the second coming of King Erik Karlsson, with just 4 career goals and 35 career points. His AHL numbers give an indication that he may have some offensive upside, but I wouldn't be expecting a hat-trick tonight.
