Ryan Lee (Redwoods) and Graeme Hossack (Archers) are unanimous All-Star level players in the NLL. However, except for Hossack’s All-World selection in 2018, they have not received the notoriety that their talent warrants in the American field environment. Having sidestepped the Division I limelight, Lee filled the net at RIT, while Hossack played at Lindenwood. These two have been Canada’s best-kept lacrosse secret for a few years. However, after one weekend of PLL game action, that will no longer be the case.
After patiently backing up Blaze Riorden in the bubble, fan favourite Dillon Ward is finally penciled in as the starting goalie for a PLL squad. Ward getting a PLL opportunity is a win for both Colorado fans and lacrosse fans alike.
