Lynx Get Munn From Atlantic City To Complete Deal For St. Jean

June 4, 2004 - ECHL (ECHL) - Augusta Lynx News Release

The Augusta Lynx announced today that the team has received defenseman Steve Munn from the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies to fulfill the future considerations owed for defenseman Marc St. Jean, who was traded from the Lynx during the 2003-04 Season.

Hailing from Maymont, Saskatchewan, Munn spent last season splitting time with Atlantic City and the American Hockey League’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers. With the Boardwalk Bullies, Munn led the team with a +30 rating in 63 games. The 6-2, 215 lb. defenseman scored one goal while adding 10 assists for 11 points to go with 136 PIMs. While in Bridgeport this season, Munn played six games, tallying one assist and 11 PIMs and a +1 rating. Munn also won a Kelly Cup with Atlantic City in his first full season of pro in 2002-03.

“He’s a solid presence on our blue line,” said Stan Drulia, Lynx Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations. “We like his size and his competence in his own zone. He’s not afraid to make guys pay the price in front of the net, and he’s a good leader in the locker room. Steve’s a stay-at-home guy who obviously has the ability to play at the next level.”

St. Jean never played a game in a Lynx uniform, coming to the team from Charlotte in the Gregg Naumenko trade. He did not report to Augusta and was subsequently dealt for future considerations to Atlantic City before the ECHL trade deadline. Munn was selected from a list of players provided to Drulia by the Boardwalk Bullies.
