Lizards Make Moves on MLL Deadline

from press release

BOSTON -- Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, has announced two trades which took place prior to today's 4 PM ET trade deadline.

According to MLL Commissioner David Gross,  Chicago Machine rookie midfielder John Glynn was traded to the Long Island Lizards in exchange for fellow rookie midfielder Mark Kovler and a second round pick in the upcoming 2010 Supplemental Draft, which will be conducted this fall.

In the second trade of the afternoon, the Denver Outlaws traded midfielder Sean Lindsay and a 2010 third Round Collegiate Draft Pick to the Long Island Lizards in exchange for a 2010 second round Collegiate Draft Pick.

Selected first in the second round of the 2009 Collegiate Draft, Glynn has played in three games and recorded one assist for the Chicago Machine. At the face-off X, he has gone 5-for-12 this season. Glynn came to the MLL from Cornell University, where he was a three-time All-American. The face-off specialist was also ranked third on his team with 20 goals and 27 total points as he helped take the Big Red to the NCAA Division I Championship game.

Kovler of the Long Island Lizards made his MLL debut this past weekend against the Washington Bayhawks where he recorded one shot on goal. A 2009 graduate from Princeton University, he was selected 12th overall in the collegiate draft by the Lizards. Kovler was the third ever four-time All-American to come out of the Princeton lacrosse program. The first-team selection his senior year, Kovler helped lead the Tigers to the NCAA tournament finishing the season with 34 goals from the midfield.

  Lindsay, who played collegiately for Syracuse University, is currently in his sixth MLL season. He has 7 goals and an assist in 5 appearances for the Outlaws this year. Prior to joining the Outlaws, Lindsay had previously played for the Rochester Rattlers, Los Angeles Riptide, and San Francisco Dragons, making the postseason in 2004 and 2005 with the Rattlers and again in 2007 with the Riptide.

In 55 career regular season games, Lindsay has scored 83 goals, including 12 two-pointers, and added 35 assists for 130 points. He has also recorded 62 groundballs in that time.
The MLL season will continue on Thursday night when the Boston Cannons take on the Long Island Lizards in the two teams' third and final meeting of the season at Long Island's Shuart Stadium at 7:00 PM ET.
