As a member of the Thunder, Mike was always a leader on the defensive side of the puck and was the best defensive defenseman we’ve had within the organization. I am personally excited to work and learn from a close friend and believe that Mike’s patience, guidance, and knowledge will be extremely valuable for the entire ADK organization.”Bergin, 34, a former RPI graduate and Thunder Captain joins the Thunder behind the bench after coaching at Skidmore College the past four seasons.  Prior to that, the Ottawa, Ont. native played 6 years professionally.  Three of those seasons with Adirondack where he tallied 20 points and 231 penalty minutes.

I would like to thank the Coalition and Pete for such an incredible opportunity.  Pete has been a great mentor and friend since we played for the Thunder back in the inaugural season. His passion and love for the game is contagious and I can't wait to learn from him daily.  I'm excited to get back to the top of the north division and be Kelly Cup contenders for years to come.” Bergin currently resides in Saratoga Springs, NY with his wife Jennie, and kids Abe (3) and Zac (2).
