The Boston Cannons have added former Michigan attackman, Kyle Jackson in this week’s College Waiver Draft.
Jackson had a breakout season for the Wolverines this past season scoring 29 goals in just the nine games he played in. He also notched seven assists bringing his points total for 2016 to 36. He missed four games during his senior season due to injury, disallowing him from being included in statistical categories. But, his 3.22 goals per game would’ve been best in the Big Ten and fifth overall in the nation.
Jackson leaves Michigan, but not before making a little more history for the team. He is already the team’s all time leading scorer and he now becomes the first ever Wolverine to play for an MLL team since Michigan’s move to the D1 level.
Jackson is yet another product of The Hill Academy in Ontario, Canada and he will try to help a Boston team that is currently 4-4 and dead center of the MLL standings. The Cannons have been getting most of their production this year from their midfielders and could use a spark on the attack.
The Cannons next game is against the defending champions and current league leading Lizards this Saturday June 18th at 7 p.m.
