The Buffalo Bandits today announced the team has acquired goaltender Doug Buchan, a second-round pick in the 2020 NLL Entry Draft and a conditional second-round pick from the Philadelphia Wings in exchange for goaltender Zach Higgins, a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NLL Entry Draft and a conditional third-round pick.
Buchan (6’3”, 225 lbs., 9/20/1994) made his NLL debut for Philadelphia last season and appeared in 17 games, posting a .749 save percentage and a 13.17 goals-against average. Drafted by the Saskatchewan Rush in the second round (18th overall) of the 2015 NLL Entry Draft, Buchan also added five assists in just over 810 minutes of game action in 2018-19.
The St. Catharines, Ontario native led all Major Series Lacrosse goaltenders in save percentage (.844) and goals-against average (6.27) in nine games for the Peterborough Lakers during the 2018 campaign. His 8-1 record ranked second in the league and Buchan won in his only playoff appearance that year.
