His 10 assists and 103 loose balls were also career highs in his 2011 All-Star season.
"Mike is without question one of the top defenders in the NLL and is an anchor on our back end," said Stealth General Manager Doug Locker. "Having him back in 2013 was a very important priority for our organization."
