The Quebec Senior Lacrosse League kicks off their season in a couple of months, and when they do there will be two new teams. Currently, the league has three teams with the Vermont Voyageurs, Capital Region Axemen and the Kahnawake Mohawks, and they play the Three Nations Lacrosse League teams during their schedule.
Capital Region is the former Montreal Phoenix and they started playing in Ottawa last season. This season, Kahnawake, who hosted last year’s tournament, will be getting another team, the Kahnawake Tomahawks.
The other team joining the league will be the Sherbrooke Extreme, a team who has played in Sr C lacrosse the past few seasons. Last season they went 9-6 for the third best record in their league behind Windsor and Longueuil.
It is still unclear as far as who their players will be and if other teams will have to leave their players unprotected, but it will be good for the league to add two more teams and have more competitive games. Vermont is the home of several of the best American players in lacrosse, while the league hosts a variation of current and former NLL players, and prospects, such as Callum Crawford, Ty Thompson, Dean Hill, Luke Wiles and Ethan Farrell.
