Undefeated Mammoth Battle Stealth Saturday Night

January 23, 2016

The Colorado Mammoth (3-0) put their undefeated record on the line tonight as they travel to Vancouver to take on the Stealth (1-1). Both teams are coming off big wins last weekend—Colorado bested the Buffalo Bandits 15-14 in overtime while Vancouver took out the defending champion Saskatchewan Rush 13-11 as a result of a 4-0 fourth quarter outburst. The Mammoth have simply been outgunning opponents so far this year, scoring…


Solving the Stealth’s Crease Conundrum

July 5, 2015

Goaltending is often one of the most misunderstood positions in lacrosse, given that it takes a pretty strong skillset to be a top-flight player at that position. But beyond that, the traits that differ amongst each goalie’s skillset are magnified in lacrosse because it creates easily distinguishable styles of goaltending. That’s why the lack of games played in the short winter box season makes it hard to get reliable data…

  The Edmonton Rush won the Champion’s Cup this weekend, their first title in their 10-year history. And so ends the 2015 NLL season. So let’s now have a look back at the season that was, and some of the highlights along the way.

Stealth and Rush Prepare in Pre Season

December 6, 2014

The Vancouver Stealth will host the Edmonton Rush Saturday night at the Langley Events Centre in a pre-season scrimmage that will pit the best regular-season team in the NLL last year against the worst. The Rush compiled a 16-2 record in the 2014 season, including a record-setting 14-game winning streak to start the year, before getting stopped in their tracks by the Calgary Roughnecks in the West Division Finals. The…


NLL Prospect Profile: Dan Keane

November 1, 2014

The Vancouver Stealth had three picks in the third round of the 2014 NLL Draft and with the 23rd overall selection took forward Dan Keane. Keane has just wrapped up playing attack for the Delaware Blue Hens in college field lacrosse.

Stealth Will Miss Presence From Sorensen

October 27, 2014

Entering his ninth season in the NLL Kyle Sorenson will not even step foot on the field, at least not competitively. It was announced by Vancouver’s front office that the team Captain would miss the entire 2015 season due to rehabilitation from knee surgery. Sorenson, who has spent his entire career with the Stealth since being drafted in 2006, is no stranger to spending time on the injury list. Where…


Wenster Green Newest Breakout Player for Stealth

Free agent Wenster Green was signed by the Vancouver Stealth on October 3, adding depth to their transition unit. Green was drafted by the Buffalo Bandits in 2012 but failed to make the team. The 21-year-old transition spent last year on the practice roster for the Rochester Knighthawks and, during the offseason, played for the Iroquois Ironmen in CLax and was a member of the Minto Cup winning Six Nations…


Rory Smith Brings Toughness to Stealth

October 9, 2014

Time to take a closer look on the draft day trade that sent Nick Weiss, and the 9th overall selection from the Vancouver Stealth to the Buffalo Bandits. In return the Stealth received lefty shooter Rory Smith, and goaltender Eric Penney. With the left side of the offense being somewhat of an issue for Vancouver, it came as no surprise that GM Doug Locker was looking to rebuild their offense…

NLL Draft Needs: Vancouver Stealth

September 16, 2014

The Vancouver Stealth finished the 2014 NLL season tied for the worst record in the league, a disappointing 4-14. They were second-worst in goals for (181) and second-worst in goals against (223). Quite the fall for a team that came a goal shy of winning the Champion’s Cup just a year earlier. Over the summer the Stealth suffered another blow when head coach Chris Hall stepped down due to health…
