Archers LC awarded second selection in PLL Entry Draft

The Archers Lacrosse Club will select second in the Premier Lacrosse League’s upcoming Entry Draft after winning Wednesday evening’s draft lottery.

It was announced prior to the Draft Lottery that the PLL’s newest franchise, Cannons LC, will select first in each of the draft’s three rounds set to take place on March 25.

With the condensed 2020 season, the PLL gave all seven returning clubs equal odds coming into the draft lottery. With the Entry Draft order set, the league’s offseason has officially begun.

2021 PLL Entry Draft Order

The ping pong balls did not fall in Coach Andy Towers’ favor as his Chaos squad will select last in each round of the Entry Draft for the second year in a row. While he may have the last pick, Coach Towers doesn’t seem too concerned.

Towers did select Dillon Ward and Jason Noble in last year’s Entry Draft, so Chaos need not worry about their squad.

PLL Offseason Dates

  • All eight franchises now have the ability to make moves with the waiver wire and trade window now open.
  • Coaches will have until February 28 to select the 14 players they plan to protect in advance of the Cannon’s Expansion Draft set to take place on March 11.
  • Two weeks later, the league will hold the Entry Draft on March 25, followed by the College Draft on April 6.

[…] There weren’t too many surprises with the Archers roster. Neither of us thought Coach Chris Bates would protect Stephen Kelly, but we weren’t shocked when he did either. Faceoff talent is hard to come by and only Max Adler and Alex Woodall would really be seen as an upgrade at the stripe if the Archers opted to select a faceoff specialist in the entry draft. As we expected, Coach Bates also left several of his poles unprotected, with the ability to bring a few of them back due to the three-player maximum or even upgrade on defense with the second pick in the PLL Entry Draft.
