NLL Trademark Tracker

Posted: June 29, 2019 in NLL

Well the NLL is back to filing new trademarks or should we say refiling old trademarks. The three new trademarks were filed with the USPTO on June 24.

  1. Boston Shamrocks –  Will the NLL try for the third time in Boston? Maybe the league is finally making real progress with TD Garden.  
  2. Re-Lax
  3. Chill-Lax

Keep in mind though the league previously filed all three trademarks a while back and let them die. Now the league decides its time to bring them back from the dead? Interesting very interesting.

Clark Abrams, 25, of Printup Road, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted first-degree reckless endangerment. Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. could send Abrams to prison for as long as four years when he returns to court Aug. 26.

The expansion Rochester Knighthawks  have found their head coach and they did not have to go far to find him.

Mike Hasen will lead the Hawks 2.0. Hasen compiled an 81-75 record as Head Coach of the Hawks 1.0 from 2011-2019.

Very underwhelming hire by Dan Carey in our opinion.  The more things change, in Rochester the more they stay the same it seems.

The Hawks have also filled out Hasen’s staff with two assistant coaches Pat O’ Toole and Matt Giles.

Good Luke Mike, you are going to need.

Press Release

With Regy Thorpe and Joe Smith behind the bench. One has to wonder if we will see the Riptide try to be Team USA.

While the Premier Lacrosse League continues to chirp about a its “Saturday Night Sellout” in Baltimore. All is not well with the PLL when it comes to both attendance and television.

The PLL on NBCSN failed again to crack the top 150 cable shows and a .03 rating. Meanwhile the Saturday afternoon and Sunday PLL contests combined to draw 8.201 fans.

Are these number good enough to sustain the PLL over the long haul? Only time will tell.

More than 20,000 subscribers for the NLL channel on B/R live this past season. At least that is the number the league is telling people.  So take it with a grain of salt.

Now we might know why the Wings did not bother to protect a goalie in the expansion draft. Doug Buchan to misss MSL summer season due to a knee injury.

What impact will this have on Philly’s goaltending situation heading into free agency and the draft? We will have to wait and see.

You can read more Here.


Teams will submit a list of 11 players they wish to protect ahead of the Expansion Draft.

Per the CBA, a maximum of five forwards and one goaltender can be put on a team’s protected player list.

Well the league has published the protected players lists. Some interesting names available to Rochester and New York.

Curious move by Philadelphia not protecting a goaltender.  Let the bitching by Philly faithful begin.

Anyway let the backroom deals begin in earnest. Check out the lists below.
