Wolves throwing in the towel on the season.  Chugger should be arrested for robbery.  We cannot believe the Wolves gave away Evans for Crawford and one pick that might not even make the roster. How does Lisk not get a first for Evans?

The Buffalo Bandits today announced the team has acquired forward Shawn Evans and a fourth-round pick in the 2019 NLL Entry Draft from the New England Black Wolves in exchange for forward Callum Crawford and a second-round pick in the 2019 NLL Entry Draft.

Dawson will plug right into the Rush lineup. Forward Curtis Knight, who was placed on the team’s injured-reserve list after getting banged up during Saturday’s 10-6 win over the Calgary Roughnecks, will miss Saturday’s home game against the Vancouver Stealth.

Keenan said Knight’s injury isn’t expected to be long-term, and there may be another move down the road.

“There could be more coming,” Keenan said. “I don’t see any crazy blockbusters, but there could more coming, for sure.”
