Declared Early for the 2023 NLL Entry Draft
2023 Langley Thunder WLA
 
IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
13. San Diego Seals Matt Abbott, RD, Langley Thunder WLA & Queen's (NC)
San Diego was the top-scoring team in the league last year with 240 goals. Especially with their plethora of lefty forwards, it seems likely the Seals could opt for defense rather than taking Justin Sykes, the brother of Seals' defender Matt. Abbott was a core member of the Langley Jr A defense the last couple of years then got a chance to play up with the Sr A team in the postseason. He played six games each in the WLA playoffs and the Mann Cup and did not look out of place jumping into senior lacrosse at the most critical time of the season. Abbott scored 12 points, including 3 goals, during that dozen games and fit in well with a Thunder squad that was adept at clearing the defensive zone quickly and smoothly.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
13 Matt Abbott, RD, Langley Thunder WLA & Queen’s (NC)
Abbott has shown steady improvement from Jr B to Jr A and into playing solidly for Langley in the WLA. He has renounced his final year of NCAA eligibility and is ready to start playing in the NLL.

16 Matt Abbott, RD, Langley Thunder Sr A & Queen's (N.C.)
Abbott got a taste of Sr A action when he was called up from the Jr Thunder to play a handful of games in the regular season then player fairly regularly in the playoffs and Mann Cup. This year, he was one of six Langley defenders to play in every postseason game. He is steady defensively, reliable when clearing the D zone, makes good decisions about when to push transition and skilled enough produce some scoring when he does.

20 Saskatchewan Rush
Matt Abbott, RD, Langley Thunder Sr A & Queen's (N.C.)
You can never have too many solid D guys, and Abbott could relieve the responsibility for taking face-offs from Mike Messenger, freeing the Rush's two-way star to expend more of his energy on flattening opponents in the D zone and driving through them for scoring chances at the other end. Abbott played well as a callup from the Jr A Thunder in the '22 playoffs and Mann Cup then was a regular in Langley's playoff run this year as a full-time member of the senior side.

Drafted in the 5th Round 76th overall by the Albany FireWolves in the 2022 NLL Entry Draft. The pick was voided due to only completed between one and three seasons of NCAA lacrosse and did not renounce their NCAA eligibility. They are not eligible to be signed by any club.

IL Indoor 09/14/23 - 10 Intriguing American Prospects For the NLL Draft: Gash, Handley, Ammann, Maher and More
Grant Ammann, Atlas PLL & High Point
Ammann is in the same boat as Gash and Handley; he is a defender who played in the PLL this summer after being picked in the NLL draft last year but turning out not to have been eligible. He is also an impressive athlete of similar size to the other pair, at 6-3 and 200 pounds. The Purcellville, Va., native will be looking to follow in the footsteps of former Panthers teammate Asher Nolting, who was selected in the second round back in 2021.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
11. Calgary Roughnecks Levi Anderson, LF, Coquitlam Adanacs Sr A & Saint Joseph's [Returning to Saint Joseph's]
Anderson was the MVP of the Rocky Mountain Jr A league in 2019 after his third straight season of averaging over 4 points per game for the Okotoks Raiders. He is big, strong, skilled and has showed solid leadership skills while playing smart lacrosse with a bit of an edge. In his debut WLA season last summer, Anderson put up a line of 11g/12a/23pts/20PIM in 17 games with Coquitlam. Like many players going back for an extra year, he'll be an older rookie in the NLL; he is 24 now and will be 26 by the time the 2024/25 season opens. That could be a deterrent to some teams if there are prospects they have similar grades on who are younger, but Anderson appears to have the makeup to step into the league and be a solid contributor.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
3 Levi Anderson, LF/T, St. Albert Miners Sr B & St. Joseph’s
After a year in the WLA, Anderson returned to his native Alberta and posted the highest points per game average in the RMLL, scoring an average of 6.14 points in each of his seven regular season games. He then tied for the playoff scoring lead with teammate Mike Triolo, putting up 35 points each, as the Miners followed up a second-place regular season with a perfect 6-0 romp through the playoffs to earn a spot at the Presidents Cup. Now he has been the best player at the Prezzy, engendering a substantial rise up the rankings. His athleticism leads some observers to project Anderson playing transition in the NLL. His stats say he may just earn a shot playing up front, either right away (after he spends a grad year at St. Joe’s) or eventually.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
5 Levi Anderson, LF/T, Edmonton Miners Sr B & Saint Joseph's
Anderson was already a first rounder before the Presidents Cup. Putting up a performance like he did in Oakville can only help his stock. The way he played was reminiscent of a former Miners star who shone with the Sr B team before making his mark in the NLL. Keegan Bal has a similar tall, lean but wiry strong build, similar quick feet and similar ability to drive to open space or create it with lateral or step-back movement for off-schedule shots. It took a while before Bal found a regular home in the pros, but now the Vancouver Warriors ace is one of the top offensive players in the game. There are a couple of key differences with Anderson, though. For one, his game seems well suited to playing transition, which may be a role he is asked to take on in the NLL, although it seems likely he could make the move to forward eventually (on a similar trajectory as players like Jeff Shattler, Dhane Smith and Mitch Jones followed). Secondly, given that he will be a high draft pick, Anderson will probably find himself playing in the NLL sooner rather than later.
 
IL Indoor 09/15/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 2.0: Williams, Poitras, Then Anyone's Guess
4 Vancouver Warriors
Levi Anderson, LF/T, Edmonton Miners Sr B & Saint Joseph's
This is where the predictions get infinitely harder. There is copious logic and hints pointing towards the first three selections; you never know until you hear the names announced, but I would be surprised if 1, 2, 3 didn't go the way I've laid them out here. From No. 4 on, it becomes more possible—if not, indeed probable—that we'll get thrown for one loop after another, tossing everyone's mocks into chaos.

Why Anderson instead of Sheridan? Great question. Sheridan just doesn't feel like a good fit for this team.

Why Anderson (who may be more comfortable playing forward although there's a good chance he'll at least start going out the back door) instead of a bona fide defender? That one is a bit easier to answer, even though the Warriors definitely need to add some high-caliber defenders to their roster. There are not many forwards to pick from who project to be fairly sure-fire difference-makers. There is a large group of strong defenders to be taken as the first round progresses (and into the second round). That means that with their original pick at 7 plus the 9 they got from Las Vegas, the Warriors will be in great position to address the D just a little bit further down the draft.

Mann Cup Shot is a Dream Come True for Lifelong Salmonbellie Noah Armitage
 
IL Indoor 07/20/23 - 10 Intriguing Prospects For 2026: Spallina, Thomson, Richmond and More
Noah Armitage, LF, New West WLA & Stony Brook
It isn't always easy for rookies to earn floor time and touches when they hit senior lacrosse. New West is loaded with talent up front; Armitage must grab his opportunities when he can with NLL vets Mitch Jones, Will Malcom and Ryan Martel populating the left side. Across the floor, Haiden Dickson is on fire, and he's joined on the right side by Keegan Bal, Kevin Crowley and Jordan McBride. Even with all that talent, Armitage has found his way into 13 games by always being ready to play when called upon. And he has produced, using his big body and athleticism to score 14 goals and add 25 assists in 13 games, good for an average of 2.7 points per contest. That ability and willingness to be a complementary player is a huge asset on the resume of a forward trying to earn a regular spot in the NLL.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
17 Noah Armitage, LF, New Westminster Salmonbellies Sr A & Stony Brook
I don't think there is a team in the NLL who wouldn't be happy if they had a rookie who could score 18 goals and 43 points as a depth lefty and generally the seventh or eighth option on offense. That's exactly what Armitage did as a WLA rookie this year, helping the Salmonbellies to finish first then continuing to contribute as they advanced to the Mann Cup with a thrilling seven-game WLA finals win over Langley. The 6-4, 210 pound Armitage, who is back at Stony Brook this year, doesn't mind at all opening up space for his teammates, but he's also skilled and athletic enough to score when he gets the chance and sometimes do so in spectacular fashion.

Noah Armitage, LF, New Westminster Salmonbellies Sr A & Stony Brook
The defending champions don't exactly have a lot of holes in their lineup and they recently added a pair of second-round picks plus goalie Steven Orleman while giving up only a player who had barely dressed for them. They're playing with house money. Setting up the athletic and skilled Armitage to come to camp next year would be a bet with low risk and potentially high payoff.

IL Indoor 07/26/23 - 10 Intriguing Prospects for 2025 NLL Draft: Kulas, Wilson, Marinier & More
Mitch Armstrong, LD, St. Cath. Jr A & Brock
Armstrong is a sturdy, smart defender who served as an alternate captain for St. Catharines this year as a 19-year-old. Last summer he was a key member of Canada's D as they won the gold medal at the World Juniors and was named to the All-World second team. Armstrong continued to accumulate honours last fall in field lacrosse, being named All-Canadian defensive midfielder then earning the SSDM nod on the All-Baggataway Cup team. His skill set includes speed, stick skills and grit, and they should translate well to the pro game.

Armstrong entered the draft quite recently, and it was a bit of a surprise. I included him in my 10 Intriguing Prospects for the 2025 Draft story this summer. Entering as a 19-year-old, Armstrong may still need some development time before he is ready for regular shifts in the NLL. On the other hand, he has been excelling everywhere he has played. Armstrong made All-World Team at the 2022 IIJL World Juniors, was on the All-Baggataway Cup team last year and was honored as CUFLA's rookie of the year and the CUFLA West outstanding D-middie. His athleticism leaps off the floor or field and his maturity was recognized by the Athletics, who made him an alternate captain this summer.

Mitch Armstrong, LD, St. Catharines Athletics Jr A, Canada WJLC & Brock
This is the Wings' only pick until No. 45, and they don't have a first next year, so that puts some pressure on GM Paul Day to make it count. You would think their preference would be someone who is available to play this year. Armstrong is a dynamic athlete and strong character player.

If Philly would rather grab a righty defender, candidates could include Andrew Vradenburg and Sam Marshall.

Benedict was considering heading to college until quite recently, but now he is ready to head to the NLL. He tended to get overlooked because the Northmen this season were so full of high-calibre talent. In the playoffs, he led the Northmen and was second in the league in assists, and he was third in the league in scoring behind Burlington stars Braedon Saris and Alex Marinier.

He can be a leading threat, but he showed maturity when he said that with all the firepower on Orangeville's roster, “If I just get the ball to them in good spots, good things will happen and I'll get some chances, too.” Benedict is quick and agile, with good floor vision and passing touch. He's also got sick enough moves that he was one of the main penalty shot takers for the Spark in the PBLA, the startup pro league this year that allowed teams to opt for a penalty shot instead of a minor power play twice per half. Benedict has no problem playing a supporting role but is deadly when he gets his own chances, an excellent combination of traits for a young forward trying to earn playing time in the NLL.

31 Georgia Swarm (from Calgary)
Kaleb Benedict, RF, Orangeville Northmen Jr A, Syracuse Spark PBLA, Armory UCBLL
Mock drafts, like real drafts, can be strange animals. I would not have guessed as I started constructing this mock that Benedict would fall over a dozen spots from his Top 50 ranking in my list. Each pick that is made has its own logic, though. At 31, having already had four selections (unless they trade away one or more, which is quite likely), the Swarm would be in a position to just grab a highly talented player with a high lacrosse IQ like Benedict and let him come to camp and try to prove that he belongs.

17. Albany FireWolves [compensatory pick] Jake Bowen, LF, Langley Thunder WLA & Queen's (NC)
Bowen garnered attention helping the Edmonton Miners to the Minto Cup final last year and took advantage of the opportunity, raising his profile substantially. Would the FireWolves use both of their first round picks on lefties? Well, with Dyson Williams returning to school for a year and Albany scoring 12 fewer goals than anyone else in the league last year, pumping up the offense doesn't seem like a bad idea. And they took a pair of righties — Alex Simmons and Tye Kurtz — in the first round last year, so why not a pair of lefties this time?

27 Jake Bowen, LF, Langley Thunder Sr A & Queen's (N.C.)
After scoring 76 points in his final year of Jr A and using his combination of size and skill to help the Edmonton Miners reach the Minto Cup final in 2022, Bowen spent this summer as the third lefty option behind Dane Dobbie and Connor Robinson (with Curtis Dickson and Robert Church across the floor) with Langley in the WLA. Bowen did fine, putting up a 9G, 18A stat line and generally handling himself well in his first season playing with men.

Jake Bowen, LF, Langley Thunder Sr A & Queen's (N.C.)
Ryan Keenan is the only lefty forward on the roster who played more than 10 games for the team last season. Zach Manns, coming over in the trade for Mark Matthews, is a lock for a regular spot as well. Other than that pair, is anyone a sure thing entering this season? Bowen has the size that Saskatchewan could use to help generate scoring chances for other forwards and showed he can be effective in a supporting role with the Thunder this summer.

Bukta took on a bigger role with Mimico in 2022, where he scored 18 goals and 58 points while playing all 20 games. He is comfortable playing to create space for his teammates and has the skill to contribute with his own scoring and facilitating.

Carte flies under the radar because he spent his junior career playing Jr C and Jr B, but he has a nice combination of size, strength, skill, athleticism, infectious energy and a touch of a nasty streak. In other words, just about everything you want from an NLL defender. Carte capitalized on his chance to play at the World Juniors with Poland by earning a spot on the All-World Team. He also joined Poland at the LAXNAI tournament and was a shining light and vocal leader for the young development squad. Carte has attacked his recovery from an injury and reports that he is now 100% healthy and prepared to make the leap to pro lacrosse. He probably isn't ready to step in and play regularly for an NLL team, but a path to continued development and eventually an important role for a club is easy to see.

Callum Jones, whom I have the Riptide taking third overall, was a great pick because he is an excellent player who perfectly fits their need of a defender who is ready to play immediately. Carte is like the thrift shop version of Jones. That is not meant as a slight to Carte at all; he is just not as well-known because he hasn't played in as high-profile situations as Jones. While he is not the player that Jones is (not many are—that's why he's a top of the draft selection), Carte has similar attributes. He is ornery, athletic and energetic, with a bit of a lingering need to learn to manage his tendency towards pugnacity to maximum effect. He is also big, standing 6-3 and weighing a solid 215 pounds. Sometimes thrift shop finds turn out to be unplucked gems.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
10. Halifax Thunderbirds Payton Cormier, LF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club MSL & Virginia [Returning to Virginia]
Cormier seems to get a lot of attention among Canadian observers for his outstanding play at Virginia being overlooked by NCAA all-star and awards voters. He certainly ripped it up for the Cavaliers. In his debut Sr A season last summer, I thought that Cormier's junior success did not immediately translate to playing well against men. He has the potential, though, to suggest that success will come. Given his size and stick skills, I've heard talk of him being a top five pick. I would want to see more from him this summer before slotting him that near the top of the round, but it isn't out of the question. He is returning to Virginia to complete his Masters degree, which means he will have another summer next year to prepare for the NLL.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
12 Payton Cormier, LF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club MSL & Virginia
Cormier is viewed as a much higher prospect than this by many people. An elite goal scorer in field lacrosse, Cormier has absolutely shone at Virginia, where he will return for a fifth year. He is the sixth of the first 11 players on this list who is property of BLC. Imagine if at some point they can manage to get all that talent on the floor alongside the already burgeoning young squad. As for Cormier, staying healthy has been an issue and not being able to has impacted his development. If he can do so, he could turn out to be a steal if he lasts into the second half of the first round. If someone takes a shot at him in the top five and he has continuing injury issues, they could second guess the pick.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
20 Payton Cormier, LF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A & Virginia
Cormier is a big-body forward with great hands, which has made him an absolute star in field lacrosse. He hasn't had the chance to play a full summer season since 2018, when his 26 goals and 25 assists as an 18-year-old Mimico Mountaineers fueled plenty of excitement for his future in the box game. He excelled in the OJLL's 2021 short-season return to play from the pandemic, scoring 33 points in seven games over two weekends. Things didn't go as well in his rookie MSL season of 2022, when he scored just seven points in five games. His struggles were largely impacted by injuries, which have been an ongoing problem for Cormier. If he can get and stay healthy, he has the size and skill set to be a formidable power forward at the pro level.

19 Georgia Swarm (compensatory selection)
Payton Cormier, LF Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A & Virginia
Cormier has the potential to substantially outplay his prospect ranking and draft slot if he can stay healthy and find the right environment. Georgia is set with Andrew Kew and Shayne Jackson but no one else really locked into a spot on the left side. Cormier might work well as a space-creator with excellent hands to finish when he gets chances.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
16. Calgary Roughnecks [compensatory pick] Caleb Creasor, LD/T, Peterborough Lakers MSL & Lehigh [Grad transfer to Marquette]
Could Creasor be the Blaze Riorden of 2023? He was a goalie in field lacrosse for Lehigh, and next year he will be at Marquette. When he enters the box, he takes advantage of the ability to move more by using his blazing speed to get up the floor in transition, which suits the Roughnecks' style with Christian Del Bianco ripping outlet passes.

Creasor is reminiscent of a former Laker who started his senior and pro career earning plaudits for his transition game but put in a lot of work to develop the defensive side of his craft: Brad Self. The key element to that evolution was focusing on defense first and trusting his speed to keep creating chances to run rather than tending to leak out early looking for breakaways. Creasor needs to make the same investment in fundamentals if he wants to earn the confidence of coaches/GMs to be reliable enough to put out on D in key situations.

12. Owen Dew, Limestone & Mimico (OJLL)
Keep eyes on Jackson Hainer and Owen Dew. The former is a solid goalie, but took over the net when Peterborough had punted its season at the deadline, and Dew played in a timeshare last year with Saskatchewan goalie Laine Hruska. He’s another late rounder that could pay dividends for a team in need of a depth option.

Doolittle made the most of his junior career, getting into three games as a 16-year-old call-up for the Barrie Lakeshores in 2018 then playing all but one of Whitby's regular season games between '19, the abbreviated '21 season, '22 and '23. A year ago, of course, the Warriors won the Minto Cup and Doolittle was a solid contributor to the championship. He is a big guy (6-1, 220 pounds) who plays a physical game but doesn't take too many needless penalties, he has played with and against elite junior competition, and he has been coached by Shawn Williams. He should develop into a solid depth defender at the pro level.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
14. Colorado Mammoth Toron Eccleston, LF, Burnaby Lakers WLA & Lenoir-Rhyne [Grad transfer to Saint Joseph's]
Eccleston had a strong rookie season with Burnaby last summer, scoring 28 goals and 28 assists for 56 points in 18 games. He's off to a strong start after joining the Lakers a few games into the season, scoring 3 goals and 4 assists through his first two games. On top of his skill, Eccleston is listed at 6-4, 230 lbs. He has the size and strength to play the physical game that teams value to support their stars.
 
Lacrosse Flash 08/25/23 - 2023 NLL BIG BOARD 2.0
Toron Eccleston could not have had a better summer heading into the draft. The big-bodied lefty finished fourth in scoring in the WLA, pacing the Burnaby Lakers with 70 points in 15 games — with 29 of those being goals. He finished behind only Zach Manns, Haiden Dickson, and Robert Church, and he finished with one more point than Dane Dobbie for the summer.

Pretty decent company to be included alongside. Eccleston also had 28 goals and 56 points in his rookie WLA campaign in 2022. Burnaby was a spot for young talent to develop the last few years, and it’s paid dividends for the Calgary, AB native.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder is headed to St. Joseph’s for his grad year, which will give him a third WLA season to refine his game before debuting in the NLL next season. He’ll be a guy to keep an eye on at the back of the top 10 of this draft
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
11 Toron Eccleston, LF, Burnaby Lakers WLA & Lenoir-Rhyne
Eccleston has the size to play a grinding role combined with the skill that allowed him to score 29 goals and 70 points in 15 games with the Lakers this summer. He is returning to school for a grad transfer year at St. Joseph’s.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
9 Toron Eccleston, LF, Burnaby Lakers Sr A & Lenoir-Rhyne/Saint Joseph's
What a summer Eccleston had. He was already on the radar as a potential first round pick, but the 6-4, 220-pound lefty climbed draft boards with his 29-goal, 41-assist season, good for fourth in the league. The three players ahead of him were co-MVPs Zach Manns and Haiden Dickson plus NLL star Connor Robinson. Eccleston's 4.7 points per game was actually higher than both Dickson and Robinson. In fact, while Eccleston's was sixth in points per game, the players ahead of him are a who's who of lacrosse excellence—besides Manns, the other four were Keegan Bal, Mitch Jones, Curtis Dickson and Kevin Crowley. Eccleston's combination of size and skill, plus the fact that he has already played two strong seasons in Sr A, will make him highly sought after.

10 Halifax Thunderbirds
Toron Eccleston, LF, Burnaby Lakers Sr A & Lenoir-Rhyne
Eccleston really climbed the charts this year with a great summer after already having had a good WLA rookie season in 2022. The Thunderbirds two primary lefty forwards, meanwhile, are 36-year-old Cody Jamieson and 38-year-old Ryan Benesch. Now, if you watched Jamieson play this summer you might think he'll just keep going forever, but Father Time is the only undefeated opponent in sports; you have to keep reseeding the fields with talent. Eccleston is heading to St. Joe's for a grad year; it would be a pretty nice succession plan to have him coming to camp next fall.

44 Hayden Fox, LD, Six Nations Arrows Jr A, Haudenosaunee WJLC & Johns Hopkins
I gave Fox a hard time for some of the decisions he made on the way to accumulating 18 penalty minutes in four games at the 2019 IIJL World Juniors, including the rare solo fighting major he took in a shootout of a game against the US. Funnily enough, that penalty may just have sparked his teammates, as Bo Bowhunter and Sam Gowland scored shorthanded goals while Fox was in the penalty box to pull the Nationals from a goal behind to a goal ahead (they eventually won 20-19 in overtime). Like so many players who walk the edge between toeing the line of physical play and crossing it, Fox has done the latter more times than you might like. He has also, however, matured and developed as a player while continuing to be someone who will do what he believes he needs to do for his team and teammates. He is passionate and tough, and he can play lacrosse.

What a blast to watch Kainen play with his father Brandon, the former NLLer, at the LAXNAI in Onondaga this fall. The younger Francis is an electrifying talent with all the physical tools to be outstanding at either end of the floor. Kainen scored 34 goals and 35 assists for 69 points in 15 playoff games as the Indians got within a game of winning the OLA Jr B championship.

IL Indoor 09/14/23 - 10 Intriguing American Prospects For the NLL Draft: Gash, Handley, Ammann, Maher and More
Elijah Gash, Whipsnakes PLL & UAlbany
Gash is a big, physical defender who inherits his love of contact from his father. Sam Gash was such a tough blocker as a National Football League fullback that one season he made the Pro Bowl without carrying the ball once all year. Elijah, from West Lyon, Mich., was selected in the fourth round of last year's draft but the pick was one of several that was voided because the player had only used up three years of eligibility. There is no question about eligibility any longer, and some team is going to take a chance on the physical specimen (6-4, 210 pounds) to see if he can make the successful adjustment to the indoor game.

Goalies
11. Jackson Hainer, Trent & Peterborough (OJLL)
Keep eyes on Jackson Hainer and Owen Dew. The former is a solid goalie, but took over the net when Peterborough had punted its season at the deadline, and Dew played in a timeshare last year with Saskatchewan goalie Laine Hruska. He’s another late rounder that could pay dividends for a team in need of a depth option.

Hainer is a gamer. He stepped in and played well for the Lakers while Knott missed the beginning of the 2022 season with an injury and was impressive again after taking the reins in net this summer after the team had traded away three of its best players, including Knott and OJLL transition player of the year Ben Trumble, at the deadline.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
5. Saskatchewan Rush Brock Haley, RF, Whitby Warriors Jr A & Vermont [Returning to Vermont]
Poitras' teammate in Whitby, Haley also came a bit out of nowhere. In his only previous Jr A season—the abbreviated bubble season of 2021—Haley scored 10 goals in nine games. Last summer, he sniped at an historical pace, scoring almost 10 gaols every two games as he put up 74 for the season while playing just 16 games. Missing the full 2020 season and playing just the two compressed weekends plus playoffs in 2021 obviously accounts for the sudden explosion of players like Poitras and Haley.

While there is nothing they could do about that, both players opting not to take part in senior lacrosse this summer (Poitras and Haley were both protected from the MSL draft by Brooklin Lacrosse Club) limits their opportunity to show what they can do playing against men. Working in Haley's favour is that he was dynamite last year, showing off the kind of natural scoring talent that suggests he will still go high in the draft. The lack of sample size may cause some teams to balk, though.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
7 Brock Haley, RF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club MSL/Whitby Warriors Jr A & Vermont
BLC was a competitive club in MSL this summer. Can you imagine how explosive they might have been had Williams, Poitras and Haley all suited up for them, as they were eligible to do? Poitras and Haley were two of BLC’s four players protected from the MSL draft this year as graduating juniors from the affiliated Whitby Warriors Jr A team (Williams was protected the year before). Haley is a natural goal scorer: he scored 74 in the regular season alone last summer, then added another 45 between the OJLL playoffs and the Minto Cup as Whitby won that title. Like Poitras, Haley opted not to play in MSL this summer. Given that his 2020 and ’21 box seasons were curtailed to nine games combined by the pandemic, this summer would have been a huge chance for Haley to continue to develop and to showcase his talent against the highest level of competition available. Not having done so makes it harder for teams to know what they will have on their hands if they draft Haley, who is heading back to Vermont for another school year, but they will know that his pure goal-scoring ability will give him a chance to make a large impact.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
6 Brock Haley, RF, Whitby Warriors Jr A and Vermont
Haley is an elite goal-scorer. He will need to prove he can produce as effectively against men as he did in junior, since he did not play box with Brooklin Lacrosse Club this summer and did not look particularly comfortable the year before when he was called up to play with BLC against the Peterborough Lakers for a game. You can teach a lot of things in lacrosse, though, but one thing you can't teach is natural goal-scoring ability, which Haley has in spades. Since he is going back to Vermont for one more year of eligibility, Haley will have next summer to hone his craft at the senior level before heading to the NLL.
 
IL Indoor 09/15/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 2.0: Williams, Poitras, Then Anyone's Guess
9 Vancouver Warriors (from Rochester via Las Vegas Desert Dogs)
Brock Haley, RF, Whitby Warriors Jr A & Vermont
Walk and think with me for a minute here. Bennett Smith seems like a good fit for the Warriors. Then I looked at the lefty defenders Vancouver has on their roster. If they do pick Laity at 7, as predicted in this mock, that means they have coming in this year him, Owen Grant from last year's draft, John Lintz in free agency and Jackson Suboch in the trade with Vegas. Those four join stalwarts Reid Bowering, Owen Barker and Steph Charbonneau. That is a lot of depth.

Four leading righty defenders, meanwhile, will be 33 (Dilks), 34 (Beers), 35 (Mydske) and 37 (Codron) by the time the season starts. That strongly suggests adding a young righthander instead; Matt Abbott played for Malawsky in Langley and would be a nice addition as a D/faceoff guy.

But then look at the righty forwards. By the end of this calendar year, Keegan Bal will be 32, Kevin Crowley 35 and Shawn Evans 37. In the summer of 2022, Brock Haley scored the most goals by an OJLL player since...John Grant Jr. in 1994. Curt Malawsky knows a lot more than I do about the sport and assessing talent, but it seems to me that if Haley is there, Vancouver should take him.

12/27/19 - Best in Box: National Collegiate Box Series Top 40 - 5. TK HAMMOND
Looking up and down this countdown, you’ve seen a ton of ultra-talented American forwards that are providing the country with their most proficient & polished box-specific players at this level than ever before. That’s a fact. Another fact: TK Hammond produced more points than almost any of them (stop us if you’ve heard this one… outside of Jack Hannah). Hammond led Colorado in points (67) and sat in a three-way tie for most helpers in the nation too (25). He is a gifted goal scorer that served multiple needs for the Bison’s booming offensive cast. If a shot is misfired or there’s rebound off a save, it’s usually Hammond collecting the loosie and looking to dish or finish, and man can he ever throw serious fire at the net. Plus, with his size and smarts, when Hammond decides he’s gonna cut to the crease, good luck!

Sam Handley, Chrome PLL & Penn
Speaking of specimens and players whose selection last year was voided, meet Sam Handley. He is 6-5 and 215 pounds and projects to be a transition player if he can find his footing in the NLL. Handley made the long trek across the country from his hometown of Portland, Ore., to Philadelphia to study and play at Penn. He was taken in the fifth round last year but the pick was voided for the same reason as with Gash. It's safe to say that someone will have to put Handley's name on a selection slip earlier than the fifth round this year to get the opportunity to bring him to camp.

16 Jacob Hickey, LT, Toronto Beaches Jr A & Western
The Beaches are becoming a factory for developing NLL talent and Hickey is their latest product. He is 6’4” and adding strength to his already sturdy frame. Hickey can play effectively at either end of the floor, having scored 35 goals and 86 points over the last two seasons with Toronto.
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
12 Jacob Hickey, LD, Toronto Beaches Jr A
Versatility is prized in today's pro game; Hickey demonstrated versatility to an exceptional degree this summer. For the first six games of the Beaches' season, he played offense and scored 16 points in that stretch. Then Matt Collison returned from school and Hickey shifted back to his usual role going out the back door. He provided strong defense and kept chipping in, scoring another 25 points in the final 14 games between transition and staying up for a handful of offensive shifts each game. Hickey will be a high pick based on his defense, but knowing his ability to play up front effectively if needed on occasion certainly won't hurt his draft standing.

6 Georgia Swarm
Jacob Hickey, LD, Toronto Beaches Jr A
Pick No. 4 was where things started to get tricky, but this is where predicting selections becomes downright diabolical. I could readily make a case for about seven different players as being a sensible pick for the Swarm here. I'm going with Hickey because I believe they want to add some size and strength to the back end, it helps that he is available to play right away, and he provides valuable versatility with is ability to play offence if needed. Not that he'll likely make a career of going out the front door, but Hickey can give you decent minutes anywhere on the floor in a pinch, and that has value.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
19. Georgia Swarm [compensatory pick] Quinn Ingalls, RT, Coquitlam Adanacs WLA & Lander [Returning to school]
Ingalls is among the many players whose chances both to develop and to showcase their growth were significantly impacted by the pandemic. In this spot I looked at players like lefty forward Luke Pilcher and righty forward Sam English. In the end, I settled on Ingalls because at #19 it seems worth taking a shot on a guy who looked so promising pre-pandemic and still has time to get back on the trajectory he was following. Ingalls is a tremendous athlete who scored 113 points in 42 games over the three full Jr A seasons he was able to play with the Saskatchewan SWAT.

His points actually dipped in the third of those years, when he was 19, but the growth in his all-around game was marked. Ingalls was a spare for the 2018 World Juniors Canadian team for the tournament in Saskatoon, the base for the SWAT and just a couple of hours south of his hometown of Moose Jaw. The following summer, Ingalls was a key member of the defensive corps that held the fort after the Iroquois jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the World Juniors gold medal game, providing the platform for a comeback that led to a 13-10 championship victory for Canada. This far ahead of the draft, if I were running an NLL team I would be investing the effort to determine if the player Ingalls looked like he was on target to becoming is still waiting to manifest on pro floors.

And while it may seem unlikely that a team would take three defenders in the first round, you don't have to look far for a precedent. Buffalo took D/T guys at 13, 14 and 19 last year; now they are celebrating an NLL Cup championship.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
20 Quinn Ingalls, RT, Coquitlam Adanacs WLA & Lander
Ingalls has a nice combination of toughness, speed and skill, making him effective in his own end and dangerous when he takes off with the ball.

21 Quinn Ingalls, RD/T, Coquitlam Adanacs WLA, Canada WJLC & Lander
Ingalls scored 113 points in his 17- through 19-year-old seasons with the Saskatchewan SWAT in the RMLL Jr A league. That is outstanding production for a young player with a largely defensive role. He added four goals in four games as he helped Canada win the IIJL World Juniors in the third of those summers, 2019. Ingalls is rugged, fast and smart. He will know to focus on defense at the pro level and take his opportunities to transition when they arise naturally, which will help him to earn more floor time.

Quinn Ingalls, RD, Coquitlam Adanacs WLA, Canada WJLC & Lander
There isn't really the same Sask kids to the Rush pipeline that there used to be, partly because selecting a Saskatchewan player is no longer a novelty, it's about adding quality players who can help your team. Ingalls is a serious contender regardless of where he's from, though, with his mix of ruggedness and skill. With the depth they have on D, Ingalls could be worth the wait while he returns to school for the extra year of eligibility.

IL Indoor 09/14/23 - 10 Intriguing American Prospects For the NLL Draft: Gash, Handley, Ammann, Maher and More
Luke Jaber, Coquitlam Adanacs Sr A & Bentley
One of the biggest commitments an American player can make to his future in box lacrosse is to head north of the border for the summer. Luke Jaber has made that trek the last two summers and in return got the experience of playing for Hall of Fame player and professional coach Pat Coyle, who is the head coach of the Colorado Mammoth in the NLL and of the Coquitlam Adanacs in the WLA.

The lefty forward from Milton, Mass., posted identical 1.8 points per game scoring averages in his two seasons with the Adanacs (so far), scoring 13 goals and 15 assists in 16 games in 2022 then eight goals and 15 assists in 13 games this summer. That put him in the top six in team scoring both seasons; he clearly is no token American but is steadily becoming a legitimate box lacrosse player. He is committed to doing whatever he can to continue developing in the game with the goal of making it in the professional ranks.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
6. Georgia Swarm Callum Jones, RD, Oakville Rock Sr B & Norwich
Georgia needs to bulk up its defense and Jones could be the perfect way to do it. Jones first came to my attention when he played four games for the Arena Lacrosse League's Paris RiverWolves while he was just 18 years old. Jones was easy to notice in that stint both for his rugged play and his tendency to fly around the floor like a madman, often taking himself out of position. By the following summer, he was emphasizing the former while minimizing the latter enough that he was named the OJALL's top defensive player. Jones still tends to play on the edge, which is where he is most effective, but his penalty time the last two summers with Oakville (MSL in '21, Sr B in '22) were just 18 minutes total over 13 games. You don't mind that time in the sin bin for a player who disrupts opposing offenses as frequently as Jones does.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
5 Callum Jones, RD, Oakville Rock Sr B & Norwich
Jones was the OJLL defender of the year in 2018 and had another excellent year with the Burlington Chiefs (now Blaze) in ’19. In 2020, he headed to Northfield, Vermont to attend Division III Norwich University, a military college where he would suit up for both the hockey and lacrosse teams. Over the last few summers with Oakville, first in MSL then in the Ontario Sr B league, Jones continued to show the blend of physicality, athleticism and lacrosse IQ that made him one of the best young defenders in the game. He will immediately make playing a little less comfortable for forwards around the NLL. It helps Jones’ case that he had a solid summer with Oakville and is looking formidable at the President’s Cup.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
4 Callum Jones, RD, Oakville Rock Sr B & Norwich
Jones appeared on the prospect radar when he played four games for the Arena Lacrosse League's Paris RiverWolves in 2017. He already had two full seasons of Jr A under his belt, but his frenetic and gritty play was impossible not to notice with Paris. It took him a couple more years to really harness his athleticism and grit to where he was playing smart tough rather than just pinballing around the rink. In the summer of 2018, Jones was the OJLL defender of the year with the Burlington Chiefs (now Blaze). He hasn't gotten any easier for opposing forwards to play against, as he demonstrated in his unfortunately brief run in this summer's Presidents Cup. The minor injury he suffered there will be well healed, and he'll be at 100% and ready to make life miserable for other teams by the time NLL training camp rolls around.

3 New York Riptide
Callum Jones, RD, Oakville Rock Sr B & Norwich
Gimme a D! D! What do the Riptide need? Defence! When do they need it? Now!

Cheerleading fun aside, New York made positive strides on the defensive side of the ball in the offseason, signing free agents Mitch Wilde and John Lafontaine. That pair, though, are 32 and 33 this year, respectively, while three other Riptide defenders are between 32 and 37. That means that New York needs some young D to augment cornerstones Zack Deaken and Ron John. Jones, ironically, is one of the oldest players in the draft, but at 25 he still has plenty of good years left in him, is clearly the best defensive player available and is ready to join the lineup immediately. He is also a righty, so he can balance out the core with lefties Deaken, John and Brent Noseworthy. One other factor is that Jones is a safe bet, having already shown he can play well against men and is ready to step right into the lineup, which is important since the Riptide don't pick again until 33.

This pick, by the way, surely would have had to be Ryan Sheridan until the Riptide were able to acquire some other righty forwards—they brought in Kiel Matisz, Austin Madronic and Matt Anderson in trades—to alleviate the pressure to supplement that side of the offence. With that trio on board alongside the re-signed Connor Kearnan, New York can address their glaring need to add to the D.

40 Zack Kearney, LF, Oakville Rock Sr B & UMass
Kearney had limited opportunity to play at the Jr A level thanks to Covid. He did have seasons of 67, 75 and 56 points in Jr B with the Halton Hills Bulldogs. The only Jr A season he got to be a regular in was the shortened 2021 campaign, in which he scored eight points in eight games with the Oakville Buzz. This summer, Kearney played with the loaded Sr B Rock as they went 15-1 in the regular season and won a bronze medal at the Presidents Cup. He was third on the team with 62 points in the regular season and looked comfortable playing with pro players or draft picks Andrew Kew, Ryan Lanchbury, Josh Dawick, Jason Knox, Cam Milligan, Marley Angus and Dylan Watson on the Oakville offense.

With 62 points for Oakville, Kearney was third in regular season scoring for a team loaded with pros, so he is familiar with the level of play necessary to succeed at the NLL level. He is athletic and shows a nice feel for finding open space on the floor.

HIGH ACHIEVERS: Repeat provincial & national-champion goalie Thomas Kiazyk declares for National Lacrosse League draft
 
IL Indoor 07/26/23 - 10 Intriguing Prospects for 2025 NLL Draft: Kulas, Wilson, Marinier & More
Thomas Kiazyk, G, Nepean Jr B & Carleton
It is generally difficult to project how an 18-year-old goalie will turn out. Some of the goalies of recent vintage who started to really show what they could become, though, include the likes of Dillon Ward and Christian Del Bianco. They were both playing Jr A for storied programs, though. A better comp for Kiazyk would be Landon Kells, who led the Elora Mohawks to the Founders Cup when he was 18. Kiazyk matched that feat with Nepean last year then had another strong season in 2023. Can he follow Kells footsteps to an impressive step up to the Jr A level, NLL draft pick and eventually starting job in the pros and MSL? He might. And it will be intriguing to see how things play out for the talented goalkeeper.
 
IL Indoor 09/12/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: 50-26
28 Thomas Kiazyk, G, Nepean Knights Jr B & Carleton
To really know how good a goalie is, you need to look beyond the statistics, of course. But the stats do speak volumes for this young keeper. Consider this: In 2022, Kiazyk put up save percentages in the regular season and playoffs of .871 and .887, respectively, as he led the Knights to the Founders Cup championship. Those are phenomenal numbers. He came back this year with a Nepean team that had lost several players to graduation and posted better numbers in both the regular season and playoffs. He joined the Burlington Blaze to play a pair of games in the regular season and was their backup throughout the playoffs, including playing one first-round game against Mimico. His save percentage in those three games was .848. While he didn't play much for the Blaze, it is significant that the team trusted him to back up Deacan Knott (who as a finalist for the OJLL's goalie of the year and was on the Philadelphia Wings' practice squad last year) on the road to the Minto Cup and that there was not a notable drop-off from Knott when Kiazyk played. He still has a year of junior eligibility, which he will probably spend full time with Burlington next summer as they try to repeat; it will be interesting to see him play a full season of Jr A.

26 Georgia Swarm
Thomas Kiazyk, G, Nepean Knights Jr B
Kiazyk has tons of potential and with Brett Dobson firmly established as the starter, Georgia could take the time to bring Kiazyk along slowly as a backup or practice squadder. He has another year of junior eligibility, where he should get a chance to show what he can do with a full season of Jr A lacrosse.

30 Andrew Kidd, G, Toronto Beaches Jr A
Kidd showed that he is a quality goalie in his two seasons with the Beaches, including helping them reach the Minto Cup in 2022. This summer, he played a ton of lacrosse (almost 1,600 minutes, or 26.5 games' worth) for Toronto and displayed not only skill but grit as he battled through an obviously uncomfortable minor injury to play all but a few minutes of their OJLL semifinals against Orangeville. He won the only game he started for the Arena Lacrosse League's Toronto Monarchs this year, as well, although that was as much thanks to the 17 goals his teammates scored as to the 53 saves he made in a 17-13 win over the Peterborough Timbermen in February. Kidd will likely need an extended development phase to become an NLL goalie, but he has talent and loads of potential.

Andrew Kidd, G, Toronto Beaches Jr A
The Warriors have two goalies back from last year's roster and they posted save percentages of .777 (38-year-old Aaron Bold) and .704 (22-year-old Aden Walsh). Getting another option into camp seems advisable. Kidd is probably more ready to play right away if needed than Thomas Kiazyk; the latter, while an excellent prospect, has yet to play above the Jr B level. If Vancouver wants to go with someone closer to the coast, there are several BC and Alberta goalies they could consider, such as Jace Lesanko, Trace Stewart, Tommy Wood, Ryder Bremner, Thomas Ungaro or Brayden Wandler, but they could probably wait till their fourth- or sixth-round pick to take one of that group.

Kriwokon is a steady, D-first defender with a little jump in transition. He played his junior career with the Raiders but got some Minto Cup experience when he was picked up by the Edmonton Miners, the hosts of this year championship tournament. He plays with a bit of an edge, although I'd like to see him put his 6-4, 220-pound frame to use to be a bit meaner on the floor. Kriwokon is returning to Burnaby's Simon Fraser University this year for school but is not playing lacrosse, so he is ready to suit up in the NLL if he can crack a roster. That may be a stretch this season, but Kriwokon looks like a project who could pay dividends on the investment of some time to develop him as a pro.

PCLC's director of player personnel Jordan Cornfield will be thoroughly familiar with Kriwokon from the big Airdrie native's years with the Raiders and his stint with the Edmonton Miners at the 2022 Minto Cup, during which the tournament addition was one of the team's best defenders. This is several slots above where Kriwokon falls in my Top 50 prospects, but the large group of defenders in the middle of the rankings will very much have different orders based on specific team preference, geography and direct knowledge.

32 Albany FireWolves (from Toronto)
Reed Kurtz, LT, Brampton Excelsiors Sr A, KW/Mimico Jr A & Delaware
Like Georgia with the previous pick, Albany had three first rounders. After Dyson Williams at the top, I have them taking a pair of defenders (Young and Volkov) who are available to come and play this year. They might not mind having to wait a year for this pick to come to camp, especially given that there might be some strong internal lobbying by Reed's brother Tye, whom the Firewolves took last year. I feel like most prognosticators have Kurtz going substantially higher than this, so if he is available it would seem like a good deal to get him.

IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
11 Brayden Laity, LD, Port Coquitlam Saints Jr A, Grizzlies ALL
Laity is ready to play in the NLL despite having a year of junior lacrosse left after renouncing his NCAA eligibility. He may be a little busy these days, though, building shelves or cases to house his burgeoning collection of hardware. Laity won his second straight BCJALL defender of the year award this year; in the winter between those honors he won the same award for the ALL West. On top of being the captain and leader by example of the Saints, Laity played four regular season and nine playoff games with the WLA's Langley Thunder, showing virtually zero signs that he was anything other than a legit Sr A player. The leap to the NLL should not be a daunting one for Laity.

7 Vancouver Warriors (from Philadelphia)
Brayden Laity, LD, Port Coquitlam Saints Jr A, Grizzlies ALL
Laity is a stud prospect, he can practically see Vancouver's home rink from his back yard, and GM/Head Coach Curt Malawsky is familiar with him from coaching Laity with the Langley Thunder as a callup from junior in over a dozen games this summer. That all adds up to an outstanding addition to the new-look Warriors that Malawsky is building.

IL Indoor 09/12/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: 50-26
45 Jace Lesanko, G, Edmonton Miners Jr A
Lesanko backed up Keegan Melenychuk for the Miners a year ago and performed the role well enough in his limited playing time both during the regular season and at the Minto Cup. This year he stepped into the starting spot and looked good as the Miners allowed the fewest goals in the RMLL during the regular season, won the league playoff title, then held his own at the Minto while facing star netminders like Deacan Knott and Jack Kask. Lesanko moves well for a tall goalie and is quick at getting the ball into and out of his stick to help facilitate transition.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
9. Las Vegas (from Rochester) Ben MacDonnell, LD, Brooklin Lacrosse Club, Oshawa Outlaws
MacDonnell was one of several defenders who stood out for the Whitby Warriors as they won the Minto Cup last summer. He is big, strong and athletic with a high lacrosse IQ. He also demonstrated his transition skills with the ALL's Outlaws this year, putting up 7 goals and 18 points while playing in all 14 games for Oshawa. MacDonnell will need to declare for the draft because he spent some time at Robert Morris; he has indicated that he will be entering the draft. While Matthew Wright would be another excellent option here, Williams has direct experience with how good MacDonnell can be from coaching him with the Warriors. That, combined with MacDonnell being available immediately, could be the tipping point in this pick.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
8 Ben MacDonnell, LD, Brooklin Lacrosse Club MSL
MacDonnell is big, athletic and skilled. He played a leading role in defence and transition as one of the Whitby Warriors’ veterans last year, helping them win the Minto Cup. He then stepped up to the Arena Lacrosse League and earned All-Rookie First team defender honours with the Oshawa Outlaws this year before being one of the best rookies in MSL as a regular with BLC. The way he has adapted quickly and effectively at every level suggests he is ready to make the leap to the NLL and step into a regular role, as well.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
13 Ben MacDonnell, LD, Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A & Trent
It may look as though McDonnell has fallen on the draft board, since he was eighth on the list I produced for NLL.com a couple of weeks ago. That isn't really the case. I'm still high on him and he really could be a few spots higher in this list, as well. As mentioned above, think of this stretch as more a group of defenders than a hard and fast order. A team from out west would be more likely to take Smith, Laity or Abbott, while a team based in the east would likely lean toward Hickey, McDonnell or one of the others to follow in this column.

But enough about the Top 50 list as a whole, let's talk Ben McDonnell. He's big, he's talented and he loves the game. McDonnell made the ALL East all-rookie team this year, and he was terrific for the Whitby Warriors last summer as they won the Minto. This summer, he played the second-most games for BLC, appearing in 13 of 14 regular season contests and all four playoff games. McDonnell was consistently one of the better defenders on the team, and his ability to raise his game to the level required as he steps up to a higher level of lacrosse bodes well for his adaptation to the pro game.

One final note: there is widespread confusion about how to pronounce his last name. I checked with him in Prague this spring, and he told me that it is pronounced like McDonald without the d at the end. Because I had so many people tell me that it's actually MAC-dun-el in the interim, I felt compelled to double check last week at the Trent Excalibur's home opener. It's mick-DON-el.
 
IL Indoor 09/15/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 2.0: Williams, Poitras, Then Anyone's Guess
13 San Diego Seals
Ben MacDonnell, LD, Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A & Trent
Oddly enough, since the Seals don't have many righty forwards on the roster, another strong option here might be the Brooklin defender's virtual homophone. Ben McDonald (the only difference in pronunciation is the “d” at the end of McDonald's name) finished fifth in BCJALL scoring even though he was traded to the RMLL's Okotoks Raiders with a quarter of the season still to be played.

As for McDonnell, I am not about to suggest that any young player could replace surefire Hall of Famer Brodie Merrill, who announced his retirement this week. Still, that announcement was coming eventually with Merrill turning 42 six weeks after the draft, so getting a big, strong solid defender to step into the breach is a good idea.

Before Ryan Colsey wowed observers with his performance at the 2023 World Juniors as the US won their first gold medal, Maher was the breakout lefty from the US. Maher showed off athleticism and stick skills galore as he put up 12 goals and 26 points in five games en route to a bronze for the Americans in Winnipeg in 2022. He is quick and opportunistic and his passion for the box game is evident.

33 Caelan Mander, LD, Port Coquitlam Saints Jr A
Mander is still just 18. He needs to do the work you'd expect from a young player on the defensive side of the game, which will come. But when he takes off in transition, it is a sight to see. Mander is 6-3, accelerates shockingly quickly and just runs past and away from people with long, smooth strides that help him to shoot accurately even when he is traveling fast. And he travels fast. Because of his size, Mander may not look like he's blazing, but you simply don't see anyone catch him. He scored 14 goals in 19 games with the Jr A Saints, then joined the Jr B Saints for the Founders Cup and put up six goals and seven assists in six games to help host PoCo win a bronze medal. He has the tools to be a standout NLL transition force, he just needs to refine his game to make sure he earns the opportunity to play defense regularly.

34 Colorado Mammoth
Caelan Mander, LT, Port Coquitlam Saints Jr A
Colorado is in an interesting position. They don't have a first rounder, which they traded to Albany for Connor Kelly. That makes this 34th pick their first of the draft. With their well-constructed roster, though, the Mammoth are probably in a reasonable position to take a swing here. They could play safer and add a goalie like Jace Lesanko. They could grab a steady defender like Evan Soucy or Jake Doolittle. Or they could wait a year for a lefty forward like Mike Robinson or Justin Sykes. None of those are bad ideas.

But they could also bring in 18-year-old bolt of lightning Caelan Mander, who needs to hone his defensive play but is blazing fast and deadly in transition. With Hall of Fame defender Pat Coyle as head coach and former NLL Transition Player of the Year Brad Self as GM, Mander would have some excellent resources and role models to aid his development as an NLL player.

After tying for first in the league in 2018 and being competitive in '19, they returned from the pandemic to win just two games on the floor over the next three seasons while being outscored by over 300 goals combined. That can make it tough to stay positive, but Marshall has kept grinding to play tough, smart lacrosse while working on improving his stick skills to be better on the clear. A highlight of his 2022 season was playing a key role for Canada at the IIJL World Juniors to help them win a gold medal. Marshall makes good use of his 6-3, 220-pound frame to be a physical presence while managing to avoid racking up excessive penalty minute totals.

Sam Marshall, RD, Saskatchewan SWAT Jr A, Canada WJLC & Franciscan
Any team in its second year of existence is going to need players all over the floor, but a particular position where the Desert Dogs could use some added depth is righty defense. One of Marshall's coaches, Dyland Chand, nicely summed up on Twitter what Marshall brings to the table. “Sam is the ultimate team guy, never stops grinding and is an absolute man on the floor. I wish we had 20 of him.” Marshall would be a good fit with the young Vegas squad.

26 Ben McDonald, RF, Okotoks Raiders/Delta Islanders Jr A
McDonald finished fifth in the BCJALL in scoring even though he was traded out of the league with a quarter of the season remaining, and two of the players ahead of him have already played in the NLL (Marcus Klarich and Thomas Vela). McDonald then added 18 points in four RMLL games to give him a total of 91 (44G, 47A) in 19 regular season games. He is a talented scorer who will need —like so many young players who are stars coming up through minor and junior— to learn to be effective in a supporting rather than leading role.

In what could prove to be the most confusing pair of selections from any NLL draft, the Seals could address their need for depth on the right side with McDonald, who scored 44 goals and 91 points between Delta and Okotoks in the regular season and added 23 points in seven playoff games with the Raiders. Whoever is in charge of making name tags for San Diego will need to be careful to distinguish between McDonald and Ben MacDonnell, who I've got the Seals picking at No. 13.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
18. Saskatchewan Rush [compensatory pick] Liam McGrath, LD/T, Coquitlam Adanacs WLA & Lenoir-Rhyne
Eccleston's four-year teammate at Lenoir-Rhyne, McGrath (pronounced mcgraw) is an interesting case. He moved from the East Coast of Canada to play a summer of Jr B then two seasons of Jr A with the Orangeville Northmen. He is primarily a defender, but he has been known to move up to forward with some success. In particular, he shone in a pair of games for Canada East at the 2021 World Junior Lacrosse Championship, scoring 8 points (5g/3a) in one game and 5 points (3g/2a) in another. Sandwiched between those games of the best-of-three series against Canada West, though, McGrath was shut out in Game 2.

Most teams will be looking at him as a defender (he is going out the back door for the Adanacs this summer) but the 6'4”, 210-pound native of Hatchet Lake has shown the skill to step in up front in a pinch. McGrath has a chance to be the highest selected Nova Scotia native in NLL draft history. As far as I can determine, it appears that Dan Finck holds that honour after the Haligonian was taken 14th overall by the Philadelphia Wings in 2004. I don't think McGrath will top Finck's mark, but a summer being coached by Pat Coyle in Coquitlam definitely bodes well for him to make big strides and possibly push him into the first round.

IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
23 Liam McGrath, LD, Coquitlam Adanacs Sr A, Canada WJLC & Lenoir-Rhyne
A native of Hatchet Lake, Nova Scotia, McGrath (pronounced like McGraw) headed out west to play for Pat Coyle and the Adanacs in the WLA this year after having concluded his Jr A career with the Orangeville Northmen in 2022. Things went a little sideways for the team and McGrath, but both took lots of positives from the summer. Coquitlam lost 14 of their 16 games, but players on the roster point out that Coyle and his staff remained focused and intense, and they felt the team was making strides. Speaking of making strides, McGrath says he felt his play was up and down early in the season, but he really thought that he was finding his stride in the last few games he wound up playing. In particular, he thought the July 14 game against Burnaby was the best he had played and that he felt like he had gotten the feel of the league and was fitting in at that level. Unfortunately, a couple of shifts into a game against Victoria the next day, McGrath's shoulder popped out in a collision, and he was done for the season.

Now he is awaiting surgery, expected to occur in October or November. The good news is that he expects to be back to 100% in six or seven months, which should have him ready to play next summer and prepare for an NLL training camp in the fall. Given the players going back to school for an extra year of eligibility, that basically puts McGrath in the same boat as 17 other players on this Top 50 list. The injury and recovery time may cause him to drop a bit in the draft, but he is still a strong prospect for the NLL in the long term.

Liam McGrath, LT, Coquitlam Adanacs Sr A, Canada WJLC Lenoir-Rhyne
McGrath is done at school and is in the draft, but he is not available to play this year because of a shoulder injury that requires surgery he expects to have in the next month or two. The Nova Scotian and Orangeville Northmen Jr A alumnus is a strong pro prospect but will likely fall down the draft some because of his injury. He anticipates being back to full strength and ready to play next summer, which should have him raring to go by the opening of NLL training camp. Picking a talented local lad in the draft is a win-win for the Thunderbirds.

Orangeville connections run deep. It would not be surprising to see Roughnecks' head coach Josh Sanderson take a Northman here. Shooter knows the kind of player that the town tends to produce and Millsap fits into the hard-working, team-first, sound fundamentals approach that epitomizes players from the program.

Carson Moyer, LF, Cobourg & Utah
Some players land on the radar really early; Moyer is not one of those players. He scored 37 points in 30 games between Barrie and Brampton in his first three years of Jr A. Then he landed with the Mimico Mountaineers and exploded for 46 goals and 89 points in the summer of 2022. But it was a pair of games as a callup with the Sr A Peterborough Lakers that caught my eye. It is hard to say what it is about Moyer that stands out, but there was something in that pair of games against men that made me want to see him play more. Now, with Cobourg, every time I see him play he does something that leaps to the eye. He has an odd shot but it works, and he has a first step that is quick and startlingly effective at eluding defenders.

Connor O'Toole, G, Brampton Jr A & Brock
Brampton probably did not have a playoff-caliber lineup this year and they traded their points-per-game leader out west at the deadline. Still, the Excelsiors flirted with a playoff spot, actually being tied with Six Nations for eighth but losing out on the tiebreaker. Much of that competitiveness can be attributed to O'Toole, who got better and better as the season went on. He allowed eight or fewer goals in five of his last six games, which included a home and home with unbeaten Orangeville. While the Northmen averaged 13.5 goals per game this season, O'Toole led Brampton in holding them to just 15 in the two games, losses of 8-5 and 7-5 during which he combined to make 101 saves.
 
Lacrosse Flash 08/25/23 - 2023 NLL BIG BOARD 2.0
O’Toole also recently declared for the draft after a standout summer backstopping Brampton in the OJLL. The son of NLL great Pat O’Toole, Connor still has junior eligibility, which will make him a strong draft and stash player for the future. He could serve as a team’s third goalie for a year before returning for a massive 2024 campaign with the Jr Excelsiors.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
17 Connor O’Toole, G, Brampton Excelsiors Jr A & Brock
O’Toole had an excellent year with Brampton, leading a team that didn’t match up well with playoff squads on paper to the brink of a postseason berth. He also has a great pedigree; his father Paddy is a Hall of Famer.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
22 Connor O'Toole, G, Brampton Excelsiors Jr A & Brock
O'Toole had an excellent season for the Excelsiors, carrying the second-lowest scoring team in the OJLL to within a whisker of the playoffs. He plays a composed game, unflustered by the pressure of being the goalie son of Hall of Fame goaltender Pat O'Toole. Connor got his first taste of Sr A action when he entered a Brampton game at Cobourg with his team trailing the Kodiaks 4-1 early in the second period and played well, stopping 29 of the 35 shots to keep them in the game to the final buzzer. Like most young netminders, Connor will probably take a few years to really hit his stride in the NLL, but he has a ton of potential to grow into a franchise goalie.

Eight years ago, the Roughnecks picked a promising young goalie with the 15th overall selection in the draft. That worked out pretty well. I'm not saying that O'Toole will be another Christian Del Bianco, because CDB is a rare athlete, but O'Toole has the potential to solidify the Calgary crease for a long time as backup and eventual air to Del Bianco.

IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
19 Luke Pilcher, LF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A, Israel WJLC & RIT
Pilcher had a mostly sensational year in 2019, when he was 18 until his birthday in the middle of October. He started the calendar year by playing for the Whitby Steelhawks in the Arena Lacrosse League and scoring 49 points (29G, 20A) while playing much of his 12 games in a D/transition role. That performance earned him rookie of the year honors. Pilcher then went to Prague to play for a CLL Canada development team in the E-Box event. He stayed on and was one of the best players in the Ales Hrebesky Memorial while playing for Gold Star Tel Aviv. He then scored 41 points as an OJLL rookie with the Burlington Chiefs (now Blaze). Pilcher wrapped up his summer playing for Israel at the World Juniors, where he had 10- and 12-point games. He looked like a no-doubt future star.

Then a combination of injuries and the pandemic limited his opportunities and output for a few of years. He did have flashes where he shone, like dominating for the Armory in the Upstate Collegiate Box League in 2021. For the most part, though, it has looked like Pilcher has been trying to find the form that he had back in '19. This summer, he had 14 goals and 24 assists for BLC while being the only player on the roster to play all 14 games in the MSL regular season. That is good production, but still left you with the feeling that there was still more available. Since he is returning to RIT for one more year, Pilcher will have next summer to fully get his groove back before he heads to the NLL. He certainly has the talent and potential to be a productive professional.

Luke Pilcher, LF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A, Israel WJLC, Armory UCBLL & RIT
Pilcher is very talented, with a high ceiling. He is also well known locally as part of the RIT national champions and from lighting it up with the Armory in the Upstate box league. It doesn't hurt that he is going back to school for another year because the Knighthawks already have a gaggle of lefties to sort through this season. He can come in and compete for a job next year after the pecking order is more settled.

IL Indoor 09/14/23 - 10 Intriguing American Prospects For the NLL Draft: Gash, Handley, Ammann, Maher and More
Cam Pilon, Cranbrook Blackwolves BCJrB Tier 2, US World Juniors, CTBLL
We've had a bunch of defenders and a few forwards, but we'll wrap up with a goalie. Like Luke Jaber, near the top of the story, Pilon made the commitment to head way across the continent and across the border to follow his box lacrosse passion. Pilon played near his Deep River, Conn., home in the Connecticut Collegiate Box League and earned a berth on three US teams for the IIJL World Juniors. In 2018, as a 16-year-old, he was largely a spectator, playing just 16 minutes. The following year his apprenticeship continued for another bronze medal team. When international competition was finally able to resume in 2022, it was the then 20-year-old Pilon's turn to carry the mail. He won a pair of games including the bronze medal match against Israel and was named to the All-World Second Team.

The head coach of that club was Oliver Marti, who also happens to be in the ownership group of the Albany FireWolves (then the New England Black Wolves) with Russ Sheppard. The story of Sheppard launching a lacrosse program at a school in Kugluktuk, Nunavut was the basis for the wrenching but uplifting movie The Grizzlies. He now lives in Cranbrook, B.C., and is the head coach for the city's Black Wolves.

Pilon made his way to the town in the British Columbia interior to play in the province's Jr B Tier 2 system. It turned out to be quite an experience. Pilon and the Black Wolves went undefeated, ultimately winning the championship of the MacDonald Cup, the Western Canadian Jr B invitational. Pilon won three games at the tournament, including backstopping the Wolves in the gold medal tilt (the tournament was broadcast on BCSportsTV; the link to the gold medal match is here).

IL Indoor 09/12/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: 50-26
37 Jake Piseno, RD, Hawkeyes UCBLL & UAlbany, Haudenosaunee
Piseno turned heads with his all-star performance at the World Lacrosse championship in San Diego this summer for the Haudenosaunee. He is listed at 5-8 and 180 pounds but plays like a much bigger man. Piseno stood out among the best field players in the world in San Diego; digging into his story suggests that the performance there was no anomaly. While not flush with box experience, Piseno impressed observers with his play for the Hawkeyes in the Upstate Collegiate league. Transition is his forte for now. He will take time to develop the box instincts required to be a pro defender, but he has next summer to work on that and possesses the physical and intellectual tools to figure it out quickly.

Jake Piseno, Armory UCBLL & UAlbany
Piseno has not generally been a box player. He came to the attention of the lacrosse world at the worlds; the World Lacrosse field championship this summer in San Diego, that is. You can read more about the defender in Part 1 of my Stamper's Top 50 Prospects story for this year's draft. He cracked the list at No. 37.

Jake Piseno, RD, Hawkeyes UCBLL & UAlbany, Haudenosaunee
The Seals have a strong relationship with the National Collegiate Box Series and haven't been shy about drafting the league's products over the past few years. Piseno is talented and athletic, and he made some good plays in the collegiate league this year. He was a teammate of Austin Staats and Kyle Jackson at the field worlds right in the Seals' backyard. With another season to prepare for the NLL, the game that he put on display for the Haudenosaunee should translate even better to the box game by the time he gets to an NLL training camp.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
4. Las Vegas Desert Dogs Adam Poitras, LF, Whitby Warriors Jr A & Loyola [Returning to school]
Poitras really only had one standout season of Jr A lacrosse, but it came as the captain and heartbeat of the Minto Cup champion Warriors, who were coached by Las Vegas HC/GM Shawn Williams. There is more than a little of Willy in Poitras, although there is less of him, of course, than in the other top lefty in this draft. Williams' edge as Poitras' former coach is even more pronounced than usual because Poitras is not playing this summer. It is an unusual choice for a top prospect to not play in his draft year; it will be interesting to see if it has an impact on when Poitras is selected.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
2 Adam Poitras, LF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club MSL/Whitby Warriors Jr A & Loyola
There are several very good players who could appear second in this list. Poitras gets the nod because on top of his skill and leadership, he shows a knack for making players around him better. He is a strong finisher, as shown by the fact that he scored 77 goals between the regular season, playoffs and Minto Cup last year; he may be a better facilitator (Poitras produced 110 assists to go with those 77 goals). He is the kind of player who can run your offence, helping to draw contributions from everyone on the floor, while also having the ability to create chances for himself and make things happen without any help when necessary. It is a shame for teams trying to gauge his readiness to play at the highest levels that Poitras did not play with Brooklin in MSL this summer. Since he is returning to school, he could still have a chance to play a full summer of senior lacrosse in 2024 before he heads to an NLL camp.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
2 Adam Poitras, LF, Whitby Warriors Jr A & Loyola
The last we saw of Poitras on the box lacrosse floor was when he accepted both the Minto Cup MVP and the Minto trophy itself as captain of the Warriors in August of 2022. He is very good at scoring and setting up his teammates, showing a knack for making players around him better. He plays a solid team game but can also put the team on his back when needed. He looks like a solid bet to be a key member of his pro team's offense early on in what should be a long and productive NLL career.
 
IL Indoor 09/15/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 2.0: Williams, Poitras, Then Anyone's Guess
2 Las Vegas Desert Dogs
Adam Poitras, LF, Whitby Warriors & Loyola
With the trade between Vegas and Vancouver, the remaining mystery around this pick has probably evaporated. Anyone you talk to will say that—other than his son, Dyson—Poitras is the one player that Vegas GM/head coach Shawn Williams really covets in this draft. The deal to give up the fourth and ninth picks was a pricey one to ensure getting Poitras, so Williams must really believe he can build the team around his former Whitby star.

The big boys keep rolling in this column, with the 6-2, 210-pound Kulera next on the list. His background in the game is a bit different than the previous three, though. Pulera hails from Buffalo, so he made the fairly common pilgrimage across the Niagara River to play Jr B lacrosse. The lefty transition player spent two seasons with the Thunderhawks, scoring 10 goals and 22 points in eight games in 2019, the summer he turned 19. He played with the Rapids in the Upstate Collegiate Box league last year and joined the Hawkeyes for the NCBS championship tournament in Utica this summer.

It is impossible to miss that Reed is one of the smallest players on the floor, so there is no point dancing around it. He is listed at 5-9, apparently by my high school basketball coach, who added a couple of inches to every player on our roster for a tournament in Montreal. The more you watch Reed play, though, the less you notice what he doesn't have and the more you notice what he does. Reed is quick, solid and possesses a non-stop motor. He played six games with BLC and a dozen with the Sr B Brooklin Merchants and at neither level was he getting pushed around or bumped out of position. It will be a stretch for Reed to establish himself at the NLL level, but he has shown he is up to the challenge of playing at the highest levels so far.

39 Mike Robinson, LF, Peterborough Lakers Sr A & Delaware
Robinson has had a stellar field lacrosse career (he still has a season to go with Delaware), following in the footsteps of fellow Peterborough native John Grant Jr. to light it up with the Blue Hens, including a 53-goal junior season. Robinson didn't get the chance to play a lot of box lacrosse at the junior level, though, and was good but not a standout when he suited up at the Jr A level. He split this summer between the Sr A Lakers and Sr B Ennismore James Gang, scoring the exact same total of seven goals, eight assists, 15 points for each (he even had exactly one minor penalty with each team), although he played eight games with Peterborough and just four with Ennismore. Robinson seems to garner more draft prospect attention than his box performance warrants, as I have seen him listed as high as a potential first-rounder in some circles. That may be a carryover effect from his field excellence. Robinson has flashed in the box as well. He played in two playoff games with the Lakers this summer. While he scored just two goals and three points, Robinson made a few really nice plays that made you think, “hmmm, I'd like to see what he can do with more game experience and a bigger role.”

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
2. Vancouver Warriors Ryan Sheridan, RF, Nanaimo Timbermen WLA & Hofstra
Sheridan needs to develop some elements of his game this summer. Putting him at #2 means I'm guessing he'll do so. If Sheridan can consistently make wise decisions and play sound fundamental lacrosse, his ethereal athleticism and talent gives him the potential to be a long-term star that a team can build around. Since righty forward seems like a position of need for the Warriors, Sheridan or Brock Haley are likely the strongest candidates for this pick, but there really isn't a strong leader for this spot if Sheridan shows continued need to evolve.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
4 Ryan Sheridan, RF, Nanaimo Timbermen WLA & Hofstra
As athletic and talented as anyone in this draft, Sheridan is also the first player in this list who is done at college and ready to enter the NLL upon being drafted. That could make him rise very high in the draft. What could make him slide a bit is the rawness of his game. Sheridan can make plays others could only dream about making; his effectiveness will really be maximized as he gradually develops the instincts to attempt the spectacular play only when it is necessary while employing more traditional skill sets in the majority of situations.

Sheridan put up huge numbers in 2019, when as an 18-year-old he scored 47 goals and 99 points with the Nanaimo Jr A Timbermen. He hasn’t played more than a baker’s dozen games in a season since and posted just 17 goals and 7 assists in his 13 games with the Sr A Timbermen this summer. He was a bit snake-bitten early in the summer, getting chances but just not having them drop; in the playoffs he was second on the team in scoring to WLA scoring champion and co-MVP Zach Manns.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
3 Ryan Sheridan, RF, Nanaimo Timbermen Sr A & Hofstra
There is no one more ethereally talented in this draft than Sheridan. He makes plays that other players can only dream of. The challenge for Sheridan is learning what Josh Byrne shared in an excellent video put out by the Bandits: that you should save the fancy plays for when you have no other options and focus on fundamentals when you're able to. Sheridan should be a good one, and it's handy that he is available to play right away.

5 Panther City Lacrosse Club (from Saskatchewan)
Ryan Sheridan, RF, Nanaimo Timbermen Sr A & Hofstra
You might look at PCLC's right side and say they don't need another player there. But look a bit closer. Yes, Jonathan Donville is a franchise centerpiece. Callum Crawford turns 39 before the season starts. Phil Caputo is a free agent after the season. Tyler Digby is 32 and not likely a long-term solution in Fort Worth. They need to start preparing a succession plan to address the likelihood that at least one and potentially all three of those righties won't be back next year.

Sheridan is raw, but he is exceptionally athletic and talented. Crawford has evolved into a mentor as he has become a more experienced player; he could be a good resource for a young player with vast potential but needing to learn the nuances of playing the game and maximizing the talent around him.

7. Vancouver (from Philadelphia) Bennett Smith, LD, Victoria Shamrocks WLA & Queen's (NC)
For folks who weren't overly familiar with the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League, the performance of the Edmonton Miners at the 2022 Minto Cup came as a surprise. The Miners reaching the final and entering the third period of the deciding Game 3 against Whitby tied was no fluke, though. They were a solid lacrosse club in all phases of the game. Bennett Smith was the leader of the defense, a big, strong, agile and skilled player who set the tone for a group that believed, and proved to the world, that they belonged on the Minto Stage. Now Smith is ready to join the burgeoning list of Alberta players making their mark in the NLL.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
10 Bennett Smith, LD, Victoria Shamrocks WLA & Queen’s (NC)
Smith transitioned pretty seamlessly from the Rocky Mountain League, where he helped lead the Edmonton Miners so close to the 2022 Minto Cup, to Sr A in BC. He scored almost a point per game for the Shamrocks while using his size and strength to handle the increased pressure facing a defender at the senior level. Adding to his appeal for many teams will be the fact that he is done college and ready to play in the NLL.

10 Bennett Smith, LD/T, Victoria Shamrocks Sr A & Queen's (N.C.)
This spot begins a string of seven straight defenders, all of whom are available to play pro right away, and who would probably fall in a different order on every NLL team's draft board; they are all very good and who prefers whom will depend on familiarity, stylistic preference and geography. Smith, like Eccleston above, made the transition to senior lacrosse look fairly seamless, stepping right into Victoria's lineup and continuing to play with the poise and tenacity that made him so effective as he led the Edmonton Miners to within a one-goal final game loss of winning Alberta's first Minto Cup championship. Smith showed some transition jump with 14 points in 18 games for the Shamrocks this summer.

Bennett Smith, LD, Victoria Shamrocks Sr A & Queen's (N.C.)
The Roughnecks may have been looking at a lefty forward a month ago. The apparently improved fitness of Zach Herreweyers at the Presidents Cup and the signing of Logan Schuss, though, mitigate that need. If Smith is available here, he is a natural pick for Calgary. He was a great captain and player for the Miners last summer, leading them to the Minto Cup finals, then had a smooth transition to senior lacrosse with the Shamrocks this summer. Adding a talented, athletic, smart defender with character who is from Alberta may make this a relatively easy choice.

IL Indoor 09/14/23 - 10 Intriguing American Prospects For the NLL Draft: Gash, Handley, Ammann, Maher and More
Camden Smith, US World Juniors, Paper City Oaks NABLL & Saint Rose
Smith has travelled north to play box as well. In fact, the righty forward has done a lot of travelling to facilitate his growth in the sport. Smith played on back to US teams for the IIJL World Juniors in 2018 and 2019, scoring five goals in the second tournament in Mississauga, Ont. Between those he joined the Mohawk Medicine Men of the Jr B First Nations Lacrosse League, where he scored 23 goals and 42 points in seven games.

The Medicine Men play out of the fantastic Turtle Dome, or A'nowara'ko:wa Arena, in Akwesasne. Post-pandemic, Smith returned to the Turtle Dome to suit up with the Sr B Snake Island Muskies for a few games in 2022.

This summer, he was able to stay closer to his West Springfield, Mass., home to play in the North American Box Lacrosse League with the Paper City Oaks, located in Holyoke, MA. Smith lit it up with the Oaks, scoring 41 goals and 61 points in 13 games as he helped them reached the national championship tournament in Chicago.

Smith is no slouch in the field version of the sport, either, having set the team record with 50 goals this spring for the Golden Knights of the College of Saint Rose in Albany, N.Y. Now Smith is hoping to bring his athleticism and finishing ability an NLL team near you.

3. New York Riptide Jake Stevens, RT, Brooklin Lacrosse Club MSL & Princeton [Grad transfer to Syracuse]
Callum Jones is probably the best pure defender in this draft class and he's available to start playing immediately, which could be highly appealing to a Riptide club that gave up a staggering 243 goals last, just 4 away from the most in the NLL. Stevens, though, is such a strong and smart two-way talent that he may be worth waiting till next season for after his grad year at Syracuse.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
6 Jake Stevens, RT, Brooklin Lacrosse Club MSL & Princeton
Landing on this list right in the wake of the OJLL’s top defender in 2018 is the player voted the league’s best transition player that same summer. Stevens is quick, skilled, tenacious and smart, the latter quality supported by his degree from Princeton. He is transferring to Syracuse for a grad year so won’t be available to an NLL team this season. Stevens has played a total of 20 regular season and playoff games over three summers with BLC, producing 12 goals and 31 points while playing reliable and opportunistic and defence.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
8 Jake Stevens, RT, Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A & Princeton/Syracuse
Stevens was generally considered likely to be the first defender taken in this draft for years leading up to it. He had a great junior career, including being named the OJLL transition player of the year, then carried his strong performance over to Sr A in his rookie season of 2022, albeit in limited game action. This summer was a bit of a tough one for the righty out of Guelph, who played his Jr A with Kitchener-Waterloo. There is no huge cause for concern, though. Stevens is smart, skilled and athletic; he is well built for the fast-paced game the NLL emphasizes, similar to someone like Jake Boudreau, to name a recent comparable. Stevens is also at Syracuse for a grad year.

12 Saskatchewan Rush (from Toronto)
Jake Stevens, RT, Brooklin Lacrosse Club & Princeton
The former OJLL transition player of the year suits the Rush's up-tempo style of play. While he is a bit smaller, Stevens is tenacious, and Saskatchewan supplemented their size on the back end with Adam Jay. And before having a bit of an off summer, Stevens was easily a Top 5 prospect in this draft. He will find his A game again and he should be ready to be an instant contributor in the NLL. He is at Syracuse this spring. The Rush should be thrilled if he falls to them.

InsideHalton.com - Sykes' strong debut has Oakville juniors buzzing
 
IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
15. Buffalo Bandits Justin Sykes, LF, Mimico Mountaineers Jr A & Hofstra [Returning to Hofstra]
Sykes is among the cohort of players whose junior careers really got a rough ride from the pandemic. After an excellent season of Jr B with his hometown Oakville Buzz, Sykes was the OJALL Rookie of the Year in 2019. Missing the huge developmental years of your third and fourth seasons in junior during the pandemic can have an impact on your final season; still, Sykes scored 59 points in 16 games in 2022, helping lead Mimico to first overall in the regular season standings with a 16-4 record and a +72 goal differential.

Buffalo already has lefty forwards like Brandon Robinson and Brad McCulley in the pipeline. The defending champs, though, have depth up and down the roster, so whatever position they choose to supplement will be a caviar selection. Having lefty forward depth to start maneuvering for depth in net should Matt Vinc retire seems like it would be a wise investment for Buffalo.

IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
24 Justin Sykes, LF, Mimico Mountaineers Jr A & Hofstra
Sykes scored 82 points in Jr B as a 17-year-old with his hometown Oakville Buzz in 2018 then put up 62 in his first season of Jr A the next year. When he returned to the Mountaineers for his final season of junior in 2022, Sykes had 25 goals and 34 assists for 59 in 16 games, a solid OJLL average of 3.7 points per game. His older brother Matt was taken 25th overall by the San Diego Seals in 2019, so it will be interesting to see who wins the Sykes family draft derby by being the earlier selection in his respective draft.

35 Calgary Roughnecks (from Buffalo)
Justin Sykes, LF, Mimico Mountaineers Jr A & Hofstra
While I mentioned earlier that signing Logan Schuss and seeing Zach Herreweyers' improved fitness as the Presidents Cup could give Calgary a bit more confidence in their depth on the left side, there are usually two sides to a story. Schuss is a 32-year-old coming off a major injury that limited him to seven games in which he scored just 15 points last season, and he hasn't hit the 20-goal mark for a season since 2019. Herreweyers is 29 and has played more than eight games and scored more than 18 points in a season just once. Competition at the position is a good idea.

Sykes was the OJLL rookie of the year in 2019. If he is ready for the challenges of the pro game after his extra year of eligibility at Hofstra, Sykes could be a value pick last in the second round.

2022 Fighting Bison CCBLL
Won 2023 NCAA Division I Championship with Notre Dame
 
12/27/19 - Best in Box: National Collegiate Box Series Top 40 - 8. JAKE TAYLOR
Fighting Bison coach and current NLLer, Jeremy Noble, described Taylor as a “special player that only comes around so often” and “as natural a goal scorer as I’ve ever seen”. Taylor is a tremendously talented player, who had he completed a full season for the Bison in 2019, would likely have challenged for the scoring crown, MVP accolades, and #1 on this list. His six-goal performance in Game 1 of the NCBS National Championship was one of the best single game highlight-reel worthy runs we saw in 2019. He dunked it from behind, ripped one from range straight down the middle, cranked one over the shoulder, went top cheddar on the PP, scooped and sniped on the crease, and maybe the most spectacular of them all… got crunched by two defenders in tight only to toss in a filthy little low flicker that left everyone’s jaws on the floor. If Taylor is not a high pick in the 2023 NLL Draft, memo to franchise owners, can you scouts ASAP before they do any further damage to your future rosters.

29 Nicholas Volkov, LD, Burlington Blaze Jr A
Volkov is an athletic marvel. He looks like a college football linebacker when his 6-2, 235-pound body is blasting down the floor faster than you would think a man that size could move. He was a key component to Burlington's Minto victory, particularly in helping the stout Blaze defense manage the historically good Orangeville offense in the Ontario finals. Volkov is ready physically to face NLL competition; he will need to show in camp that he has the necessary lacrosse IQ for the pro league if he is going to get floor time, but with a year of Jr eligibility remaining, he has time to develop and round out his game.

15 Andrew Vradenburg, RD, Burlington Blaze Jr A, Canada WJLC, Six Nations Snipers ALL
Fresh off captaining the Blaze to the team’s first Minto Cup title, Vradenburg leads by example with steady, resolute defending. He also won a gold medal with Canada at the 2022 IIJL World Juniors and scored 14 points in 13 games with the Six Nations Snipers in the Arena Lacrosse League this year.
 
IL Indoor 09/12/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: 50-26

Vradenburg was the captain of the Minto Cup champion Blaze. It is no coincidence that the team has plenty of players in this top prospect list—they were a veteran club with a ton of talent. Vradenburg was a steadying influence and solid defender for Burlington. He also showed some transition pop with seven goals and 14 points in 13 games with the Snipers in the ALL this year.

Andrew Vradenburg, RD, Burlington Blaze Jr A, Canada WJLC
Bringing in the Minto champions' captain to compete for a spot always has the potential to go well. Halifax is one of the most difficult teams to predict at the draft; perhaps they could with the reliable leader of the reigning junior champs.

After spending his pre-pandemic seasons with Whitby's Jr C club, Wheller jumped to the Jr As in 2022 and played 13 regular season games but was not a regular for the Minto Cup. He took another big step in 2023 when he became an every-game defender for the reigning champs. His confidence heading into the OJLL season undoubtedly got a boost from playing 11 games with the Steelhawks in ALL, in which he displayed an unexpected scoring touch by putting up 14 points.

IL Indoor 09/14/23 - 10 Intriguing American Prospects For the NLL Draft: Gash, Handley, Ammann, Maher and More
Brian Wiles, US World Juniors & UMass Lowell
Wiles played for the US at back-to-back IIJL World Juniors. His first was as a transition player at the 2018 even in Saskatoon, where the then 19-year-old played a pair of games. A year later, he was a forward for the American side in Mississauga and took on a much bigger role. Wiles used his darting quickness and stick skills to score 25 points in five games, including exploding for three goals and seven assists in an absolute firecracker of a round robin game against the Iroquois that the US wound up losing 20-19 in overtime.

The Longmeadow, Mass., native stayed fairly close to home for college, making the trip an hour and a half northeast up I90 to Lowell, but is ready to travel for a chance to play with an NLL team. He can play out either door but is more likely to take on a defensive role in professional box lacrosse.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
1. Albany FireWolves Dyson Williams, LF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club MSL & Duke [Returning to Duke]
Everyone seems to assume that Las Vegas HC/GM Shawn Williams will make a deal with Albany to be able to draft his son. There is sense to that. But remember two things: Albany would have to want to make the deal, as well, and Las Vegas is a team entering its second season of existence that needs to add a lot of pieces to the puzzle. Would they be well served to trade, say, the following package for the first overall pick: 4th and 10th overall picks in 2023 plus 2022 first rounders Dylan Watson (2nd overall) and Jacob Saunders (16th overall)?

Albany has Alex Simons, Will Johansen and Tye Kurtz coming from last year's first round, so they feel pretty good about the way their future is looking. Adding Dyson Williams could be a huge step in helping their offense that floundered this season continue to grow another year down the road.

On the other hand, Albany could add Watson and Saunders this year along with their own trio of 2022 draftees, plus get a couple more good players this fall. With the 4th pick they could grab one of the next three forwards coming up in this mock draft. And there is a handful of solid defenders in the next tier of the draft, one of whom should be available at 10 and most of whom are ready to play this year rather than returning to school.

So the big question becomes, does Albany prefer to add lots of good players to their roster or one potentially franchise-defining forward? I'm inclined to think Albany sits tight and drafts Dyson Williams, but time will tell if Las Vegas or someone else is able to blow the FireWolves away with an offer they can't refuse.

If you happen to be wondering if someone else might just be the pick here instead of Williams, that is highly unlikely. He led Major Series Lacrosse in goals and points as a rookie last summer. He is not Jeff Teat, but Williams is ready to make a huge impact starting the day he steps onto an NLL floor to play.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
1 Dyson Williams, LF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club MSL & Duke
Williams is a good bet to be the best player to have come out of this draft when it is viewed 10 years from now. Whether or not that turns out to be the case, he certainly appears to be the most ready to make an impact immediately upon joining the NLL. That could be a while, since he is returning to Duke. It may also have been a while since he has played box lacrosse when he gets to the NLL; Williams did not play for BLC in Major Series Lacrosse this summer and is likely to play in the PLL next summer, after returning to Duke for the extra year of eligibility still available to players whose college careers were impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

But Williams showed in his rookie MSL season of 2022 that he was ready not just to play, but to excel, against men. Williams led the league in both goals (26) and points (45) in the 12-game regular season. In a league stocked with NLL talent, that is no mean feat. It will be a challenge for Williams, as it would be for anyone, to match the career that his father (Shawn Williams will be inducted into the NLL Hall of Fame on September 15) produced, but Dyson appears ready to make his own name.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
1 Dyson Williams, LF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A & Duke
Williams won't be heading to the NLL for another year as he is returning to Duke for the extra year of eligibility, but he is already the most NLL-ready player in this draft. As an MSL rookie in 2022, all Williams did was lead the league in goals and points. The five players directly following him on the points list were Holden Cattoni, Ryan Lanchbury, Shawn Evans, Brendan Bomberry and Cody Jamieson. He has NLL size, skill and lacrosse IQ. He will be a difference-maker the day he sets foot on a pro lacrosse floor.
 
IL Indoor 09/15/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 2.0: Williams, Poitras, Then Anyone's Guess
1 Albany FireWolves
Dyson Williams, LF, Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A & Duke
Nothing changes at the top from Mock Draft 1.0. Williams is an easy pick, so unless someone can put together an offer the FireWolves simply can't refuse, Albany takes Williams to add to the left side in 2024 and looks to fuel an offensive resurgence this year with their 2022 first-round righties, Alex Simmons and Tye Kurtz.

12. Toronto Rock Matthew Wright, RD, Peterborough Lakers MSL & North Carolina [Grand transfer to Syracuse]
Wright is part of a group of defenders whose placements on draft boards could vary dramatically from team to team, based on what they see and what they want for their roster. Wright has an edge on Callum Jones, for instance, because Wright is 21 right now while Jones is 25. That means extra years of contractual control over a talented and athletic player before potential free agency, which could sway the decision for a team that has the pair rated as a toss up. Zach Young, Bennett Smith and Ben MacDonnell are all available right away while Wright is returning to school for another year, which could push that trio ahead of him for many evaluators.

Wright is big and strong, he is a very smart player and he has the skill to contribute in transition. Some injury issues have contributed to him not playing a ton of box lacrosse for several years, so a big season with the Lakers as they try to pull off a Mann Cup five-peat would go a long way toward solidifying his highly rated potential and perhaps securing him a spot in the top half of the first round.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
9 Matthew Wright, Peterborough Lakers MSL & North Carolina
Wright has not played a ton of box lacrosse over the last five years, but he has done enough to show that he uses his size (6'1", 210 pounds) effectively, has the speed to excel in today’s NLL, and has the skill to contribute in transition as well as on defence. Wright won a gold medal with Canada at the IIJL World Juniors in 2018, just a few days after his 17th birthday. Three years later he was named to the All-World Team as he helped Canada East win another gold medal. Wright, now 22, has already graduated from North Carolina and is headed to Syracuse for a grad year. He won’t join an NLL team for another year, but he should be worth waiting for.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
7 Matthew Wright, RD/T, Peterborough Lakers Sr A & North Carolina/Syracuse
For certain players, the game just seems to move at a slower pace. Wright is one of those players; he always seems to have the time to assess a situation and take the best course of action, even when the game looks chaotic around him. His size, strength and lacrosse IQ make him a strong defender; that sense of composure under duress contributes to his effectiveness in clearing and pushing transition. He was limited to three games in MSL this summer, so it is good that Wright should have next summer to play a full senior box season before heading to the NLL after spending a grad year going to school and playing at Syracuse.

8 Georgia Swarm (from Panther City)
Matthew Wright, RD/T, Peterborough Lakers Sr A, Canada WJLC & North Carolina
Having taken the immediately available Hickey two picks ago in this mock, Georgia can afford to wait a year to add a righty counterpart. Wright is a compelling prospect who would be well served getting to play more than just the few games he did this summer before starting his pro career. Spending a grad year at Syracuse with a host of other transfers should be an interesting experience, and it gives Wright a chance to suit up with Peterborough more in 2024 to prep for the NLL.

IL Indoor 06/14/23 - Stamper's 2023 NLL Mock Draft 1.0: After Dyson, Who's Next?
8. Georgia (from Panther City) Zach Young, RD, Brooklin Lacrosse Club & North Carolina
Young was the first overall pick in the Ontario Jr A draft of graduating midget players back in 2017. All he's done since then is reinforce his reputation as a solid defensive player with good size and reasonable stick skills to clear the defensive zone. He won't make a lot of wow plays, but the more you watch him the more you realize how reliable and effective he is. His crouched defensive stance reminds me of Robert Hope and the way he plays incorporates many of the factors that have made Hope such a standout in his career. Young's style should translate well to the pro game.
 
NLL.com 08/29/23 - NLL ENTRY DRAFT: TOP 50 PROSPECTS 2023
14 Zack Young, RD, Brooklin Lacrosse Club MSL & North Carolina
Young is a former first overall selection from the OJLL draft of graduating midget players. Yet another BLC player, Young is not flashy but plays consistently strong, reliable defence.
 
IL Indoor 09/13/23 - Stamper's Top 50 NLL Draft Prospects: Williams, Poitras Lead Best Players Available to be Picked
15 Zack Young, RD, Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A & North Carolina
First overall picks are very often offensive or at least high-scoring transition players. Young was taken by the Jr A Peterborough Lakers first overall in the 2017 OJLL draft of graduating midgets because of his solid defensive game and he has continued to thrive in that element of the game. His style is reminiscent of another Jr Lakers grad who has gone on to a solid pro career. The 6-3 Young plays with a similar bent-over posture and widely spread feet as Colorado Mammoth captain Robert Hope. Also like Hope, Young does not look particularly fast when he runs but he gets where he needs to be. I am not saying Young will play at the same level as Hope, who was taken seventh in the 2014 draft and would probably go in the top three if that draft were being re-picked today. Young does, however, project to be a solid long-term defender in the NLL.

Zack Young, RD, Brooklin Lacrosse Club Sr A & North Carolina
Abbott could be a consideration here, but geography is a consideration and the FireWolves already have Joe Nardella, so they don't need a face-off guy. With 2022 first-rounder Will Johansen gone for the year with a knee injury, a big and reliable defender like Young is just what the doctor ordered.
