#14 - Mike Collins "Retirement"
After 10 years of shared success #14 - Mike Collins (Linesman) will be hanging up the skates at the end of this year.
Mike has experienced the inception period of the GMHL to the present state of growth we enjoy today. Mike joined the officiating staff in year one while his son played on one of the start-up teams. The father son relationship was typical of uniting on the ice with the sport they both loved. Although his son went on to NCAA opportunities, Mike remained on the lines at the GMHL.
Mike has achieved a remarkable history:
* 188 games and still climbing as we approach the post season.
* Mike has received our "Linesman of the Year" award
* He has set the standard for our Face-off proceedure.
* Selected Linesman All-Star Games
* Selected Linesman Showcase Tournaments
Mike is respected among players and his peers for his work. He is well liked for his personality, smile, and his offering of tangerines to each official at every game.
