UMaine Hockey Defenseman Nears Return from Injury


Mahoney, Larry, Bangor Daily News (Bangor, ME)


ORONO, Maine -- University of Maine junior defenseman Rob Michel, who suffered a knee injury in the first period of a Dec. 8 win over Quinnipiac, could return to the lineup as soon as Saturday night for a Hockey East contest at Boston University.

Michel, an alternate captain, has missed the last three games but he has resumed practicing and is close to returning.

Michel was the team's leading point-getter among defensemen last season with nine goals and 10 assists in 34 games. He was tied for fifth in the country in goals among defensemen and his four power-play goals were third on the team. He also had two game-winning goals and a shorthanded score.

The smooth-skating 6-foot-2, 195-pound native of Camillus, New York, logs a lot of ice time and quarterbacks one of the power-play units.

UMaine received three goals from defensemen in Saturday's 5-2 win over Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute including one from junior Keith Muehlbauer, who hadn't scored since the 4-3 overtime loss to Northeastern in the first round of the Hockey East playoffs on March 5, 2016. …
