Ken Clausen Returns to Outlaws; Morrissey Selected

In surprise news out of the Major League Lacrosse supplemental draft, the Chesapeake Bayhawks drafted retired midfielder JJ Morrissey while the Outlaws selected oft-injured Ken Clausen.

Clausen was originally an Outlaw and a member of the Colorado Mammoth NLL team, but knee injuries derailed his career and he has not played in the past three seasons. Morrissey, meanwhile, had played with the Boston Cannons and announced his retirement before 2013 and did not play at all last season.

This is the second year in a row the Bayhawks have drafted a player out of retirement after selecting Casey Powell last season. They also selected Canadian defenseman Kyle Rubisch, who is the captain of the NLL’s Edmonton Rush.

Stay tuned for more throughout the draft as it happens.
