“Muffler” Mike Kostiuk was formally introduced to box lacrosse when he attended a New England Black Wolves game on a whim in 2016. Instantly hooked with the game, he has since become an avid follower of the National Lacrosse League. Following the postponement of the 2019-2020 NLL season, Lax Philly founders Kevin Neibauer and Gary Groob offered Muffler the chance to share his wealth of statistical knowledge and unique insights with the lacrosse community at large. He cheerfully accepted, and currently serves as Lax Philly’s correspondent for both the Albany FireWolves and New York Riptide.
