BUFFALO, NY (April 17, 2013) --- The National Lacrosse League today announced that Buffalo Bandits transition player Jordan Critch has been named NLL “Rookie of the Week” for Week 15 of the 2013 NLL season.
Critch, who entered the week with one goal and no assists in three career games, tallied two goals and two assists in Buffalo’s 15-10 win against the Washington Stealth on Saturday, April 13. The win kept Buffalo’s 2013 playoff hopes alive.
The 22-year-old Orangeville, Ontario native, was Buffalo’s second-round selection (16th overall) in the 2012 NLL Entry Draft. Critch becomes the Bandits’ fourth Player of the Week selection of the 2013 season, joining Anthony Cosmo (Defensive Player of the Week – Week 7), Jay Thorimbert (Transition Player of the Week – Week 9) and Alexander “Kedoh” Hill (Transition Player of the Week – Week 12).
The weekly player award winners are selected by a vote of the league’s general managers and head coaches.
