The only new member of the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame in 2012 will be Steve Dietrich, former goalie in the NLL.
Dietrich, who was recently named the general manager of the Buffalo Bandits, played with the Baltimore Thunder, Detroit Turbos, Rochester Knighthawks, Bandits, Calgary Roughnecks, Edmonton Rush and Toronto Rock.
He was the 2006 NLL MVP and is the only goaltender in NLL history to win the award. In 1997, he won a league championship with Rochester and was the game MVP.
He was the Toronto Rock’s goaltending coach the last two seasons before being named the Buffalo GM a couple of weeks ago.
The Hall of Fame ceremony for Dietrich will be on October 3rd in Toronto at the Western Harbour Castle and tickets will be on sale in the near future.
The next closest on the ballot to the 75% needed to be elected was the 1993 Buffalo Bandits undefeated team.
