Press Release

Standard piece from the league office, touting accomplishments heading into the season. However, the league did mention expansion targets.

  • Washington / Baltimore
  • Dallas
  • New York
  • San Fransisco / San Jose

Washington, Baltimore, New York, and San Jose have all failed before in the NLL. Dallas has not been tried yet. Interesting that the press release makes no mention of Canadian markets specifically Halifax and Edmonton.

What the league fails to address in the rush for expansion money, is the lack of talent available. Eleven teams will stretch the talent pool and the American players will suffer growing pains as they adjust to the NLL.

It will be interesting to see how the US developmental team (Philadelphia) fares when the Wings begin play in 2018-2019 season.

News Release

Vancouver, BC – The Vancouver Stealth have announced today that their partnership with TSN Radio Vancouver has been extended for the 2017/18 National Lacrosse League season.

As part of the deal, all 18 home and road games will be on TSN 1410 online and 14 of their games will be broadcast live on TSN 1410.

“TSN Radio Vancouver has helped grow the game since the minute the Stealth arrived in town,” said Stealth Classified Host Brad Challoner. “After making the playoffs last year, we are expecting even more excitement this season. Lacrosse is the most powerful and creative sport on Earth and we can’t wait to present it on local radio for another season.”

The deal marks the fifth year in a row that the Stealth and TSN Vancouver have aired Stealth lacrosse on the Vancouver station. The duo of Jake Elliott and Brad Challoner will pair together for all home games inside Langley Events Centre. On the road, Elliott will travel with the team while Challoner will be giving insights from TSN headquarters. The pair will continue to host Stealth Classified, Vancouver’s only lacrosse radio show Friday nights at 11:00PM on TSN 1410.

“It is an honor to be able to call the Vancouver Stealth and to do it on the home of lacrosse in BC is amazing,” said Stealth play-by-play host Jake Elliott. “This will mark the fifth year that Brad and I have worked together and with Corey Small taking his game to another level, the Matt Beers era beginning, and new additions like Andrew Suitor, this is going to be the most exciting year we have had yet.”

All Stealth games will broadcast live on TSN1410 online and the iHeartRadio app.
