Stealth make trade

Hoggarth exchanged for Saunders

The Langley-based Vancouver Stealth have traded for forward Pat Saunders, sending Thomas Hoggarth in exchange to the Buffalo Bandits.

The deal was announced Monday.

Saunders, a left-handed forward is a nine-year veteran in the National Lacrosse League, previously playing for the Buffalo Bandits, New England Black Wolves, Philadelphia Wings, Toronto Rock and Rochester Knighthawks.

He has appeared in 74 games scoring 138 goals, 102 assists and 240 points.

Saunders had his most prolific season as a member of the Black Wolves in 2016, where he scored 44 goals, 32 assists and 76 points in 18 games.

“I think this is going to be a big move and I am feeling great about the whole situation,” Saunder said.

“Pat is a veteran who has played in the league for a long time and knows how to score,” said assistant general manager and head coach Jamie Batley.

Saunders is expected to be in the line up for the Vancouver Stealth for their next game this coming Saturday at 7 p.m. against the Saskatchewan Rush at the Langley Events Centre.

Ahead of the game, the Stealth will host a ceremony to honor long-time captain Curtis Hodgson, marking the first time the Stealth will retire a player’s jersey.
