Interview Here

Pretty much a rehash of what is already known.  Nick did mention “big announcement” coming for NLLTV.

Halifax back in the mix.  From the interview

In Canada, we currently have four teams, will soon have five, and we think we can get that number up to seven or eight, which would make us the biggest professional sports league in the country.

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.

Press Release



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.”
