Two of the Rochester Knighthawks picks during last week’s entry draft have been voided by the National Lacrosse League, both Holdon Vyse and Brendan Doran deemed ineligible selections.
Vyse, although no longer attending or playing for Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, New York, was deemed to have two remaining possible years of collegiate eligibility left by the league. The recent Six Nations Arrows grad and OLA Jr. A All-Star member is intending to begin classes at Brock University in January, where he will also play for the school’s lacrosse team.
The draft’s 28th overall pick, Doran, who the Toronto Rock signed and released prior to the start of the ‘09 season, had been deemed an unrestricted free agent by the the league, making him ineligible in this year’s draft. Although no official signings have been released by the NLL, it’s expected that Doran will once again sign with the Rock, last week winning a Mann Cup under current Rock head coach and GM, Troy Cordingley and Terry Sanderson.
The other pick some felt may be up for discussion was the Rock’s selection of speedy defender Damon Edwards, who’d previously been linked to both Denver University and Onondaga CC, last year playing for Brock University. As it stands now, it appears Edwards will remain in the Rock fold heading into 2010.The foremost boxla writer, Tutka is a former NLL scout and a longtime Inside Lacrosse contributor.
