2008-09: Kevin Lynch scored 36 points in 49 games with the USNTDP. Ranked as the 100th NA skater by Central Scouting for 2009. Had a good U18 tournament.
2009-10: Lynch skated in all 45 games as a freshman for Michigan, scoring 6 goals and 10 assists for 16 points.
2010-11: Lynch skated in all 44 games for CCHA regular season champion and NCAA runner-up Michigan as a sophomore. Lynch's 11 goals were tied for fourth on the Wolverines and he had 5 assists with a +3 plus/minus and 36 PMs. The Wolverines were upset by Western Michigan in the semifinals of the CCHA tournament but defeated Notre Dame in the third-place game and then won three straight games in the NCAA tournament; falling in overtime to Minnesota-Duluth in the championship game.
2011-12: In his junior year at the University of Michigan, Lynch had 13 points in 39 games. He scored three less goals than the year prior and his first minus rating in college doesn’t help his case.
Despite his goal totals dropping from his sophomore campaign, Lynch was able to turn some heads at the Blue Jackets’ developmental camp. He has decent hands to go with his solid puck control and prides himself on being strong along the boards.
Lynch will return to the Wolverines for his senior season, but if he wants to make a career playing hockey he needs to bounce back from a down year.
