Possible Bandits Rookies to Watch out for

There are a couple of new faces to look for with the 2008 Bandits. Here is a few that Steve Kojima from NLL Insider thinks will make an impact:

13/ Kyle Schmelzle – Buffalo… Schmelze is a Six Nations’ product who played this past summer in the MSL with St. Regis. The defender was taken by Buffalo in the 2005 NLL Entry Draft, and the club is now looking for him to contribute in a regular role. “He’s a big, physical guy, very athletic,” added Bandits’ Head Coach and GM Darris Kilgour. (No. 53 overall, 2005)

14/ Brandon Francis - Buffalo… Francis won close to 80% of his draws in an exhibition against Toronto and should also see a lot of floor time with Buffalo at the face-off circle. “He’s doing a great job on the draws, which is something we haven’t had in a long time. I’m very pleased with him as well,” said Kilgour.

Here is the rest of the list from Kojima: Link
