Even Without McNamara, Black Wolves Have Deep Defense

December 7, 2016

As soon as they traded for Shawn Evans before last season, it was clear the New England Black Wolves were going to be able to score. With the Buchanans, a vastly improved Pat Saunders, and newcomers Chad Culp and Reilly O’Connor, there’s no doubt New England is going to be able to find the back of the net early and often in 2017.

There have been two trends this NLL offseason, and the biggest one might be field lacrosse players signing with indoor teams. Josh Hawkins was the latest as the Boston Cannons midfielder signed a contract with the New England Black Wolves.

The New England Black Wolves have, for the second straight offseason, been the most active team in free agency and trades. With the signings of Jay Thorimbert and Chad Culp, and the contract of Shawn Evans on the books from a trade last fall, the team may have had to shed some off of their cap. If so, they did that move in the form of trading defender Andrew Suitor…

August 8, 2016

The New England Black Wolves are heading into just their third season of play since moving to Philadelphia. Already, the young team has seen a worst-to-first turnaround, the acquisition of a former league MVP, and a playoff run. In the brief history of the club, however, has also been an odd trend. While during their tenure as the Philadelphia Wings, the franchise was not one to sign big name free…
