In some rather unfortunate news for both the Peterborough Lakers and Buffalo Bandits, Mark Sttenhuis has torn his ACL and will be out for the rest of the Major Series Lacrosse season.
Training camp in the National Lacrosse League typically is around November and December, so there’s no chance Steenhuis would be ready for that and there’s a good chance he misses the entire season with Buffalo.
The report on the Peterborough Examiner, which says Steenhuis also tore his MCL, states that the recovery time will be at least six months for the transition player.
According to the report, Steenhuis is not yet sure if he will have surgery. For now the plan is to rest and allow the injury to heal itself.
Last season with the Lakers, Steenhuis scored 83 points in 17 regular season games.
