Count another high-profile Canadian star on Hofstra’s roster. Pride assistant coach Matt Rewkowski confirmed to Inside Lacrosse Monday that former Denver Pioneer Jamie Lincoln has transferred to Hofstra.
The Ontario native received honorable mention All-American, first-team All-GWLL and GWLL Newcomer of the Year honors as a freshman in 2007, when he finished ninth in the NCAA with 48 goals. Last year, he had five goals and two assists in DU’s first nine games before being dismissed from the team for violating team policies. (Canadians Brad Richardson (a senior) and Ilija Gajic (junior) were also dismissed at that time.)
A 6-0, 175-pound attackman, Lincoln comes in at the perfect time for Hofstra, which graduated finisher Tom Dooley this year and has Canadian junior Jay Card for two more seasons. Card led Hofstra with 44 points this spring, earning honorable mention All-American honors. Also back at attack for the 2010 season are senior Dan Stein (6G, 5A) and junior Kevin Ford (19G, 9A).
Lincoln, the 2007 BCLA top scorer and league MVP with Burnaby, was seen as a legitimate NLL prospect for this year’s Entry Draft should he have decided to go pro and forgo his remaining NCAA eligibility. In three games this season with the Western Lacrosse Association’s Langley Thunder, also home to former Virginia star Garrett Billings, Lincoln has nine points.
Rewkowski said the Hofstra coaching staff declines to comment on the transfer.
