Witkowski's vast improvement for WMU hockey team no fish story

The fact that Luke Witkowski finds time during hockey season for some regular ice fishing says something about his passion for the outdoors.

But Matt Tennyson says the more telling sign is the live bass his Western Michigan University hockey teammate keeps in his room.

“He has a fish tank in his room with a bass in it,” said Tennyson, who paused and shook his head with a smile. “I guess that’s pretty hardcore. I don’t know of anyone else who has that. He’s pretty outdoorsy.”
