GORHAM, ME -- The Eastern Hockey League (EHL) would like to congratulate Jon Lounsbury, the Head Coach/GM of the Walpole Express, on his induction in the Husky Hall of Fame.
The 2005 recipient of the Athletic Department's Roland Wirths' Memorial Award, Lounsbury was a four-year member and four-time all-star defensemen for the Huskies, who after his playing days in Gorham came to an end, went on to skate in 250 professional hockey games with various organizations.
A member of Southern Maine's team from 2001 through 2005, Lounsbury made an immediate impact earning 2001-02 ECAC All-Rookie honors, and then went on to earn All-ECAC honors the next three seasons, including first team accolades in his final season (2004-2005). A two-year captain (2003-2004, 2004-2005), Lounsbury earned his most prestigious honors in his senior season, when he was named to the All-New England team, and earned American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) second-team All-American honors – just the second USM men's ice hockey player to earn the coveted distinction.
