In the past few seasons, Aaron Wilson has played for National Lacrosse League teams in Minnesota and Edmonton. But today, he’s a member of the Buffalo Bandits and he’s stoked. “They are the big, bad Buffalo Bandits,” Wilson told The Record after Wednesday’s trade that sent him from Edmonton to Buffalo. “It’s surreal to think that I am one of them now.” Wilson helped lead the Rush to last year’s Champion’s Cup game and is eager to hopefully do the same in Buffalo all the while getting the chance to play with a legend. “It’s gonna be pretty cool to play with John Tavares. I look forward to getting to know those guys even better and making a run for the Champion’s Cup.” As for the Bandits, new GM Steve Dietrich has been a busy man, revamping a roster that was disappointing by Buffalo standards last winter. The latest deal gives the Bandits 5 players (Wilson, Jamie Rooney, David Brock, Jay Thorimbert and Glen Bryan) who play summer lacrosse for Kitchener-Waterloo, a team Dietrich knows well as GM.Chavez is an avid lacrosse player in Rochester and a journalist for the Democrat and Chronicle as well as a longtime Inside Lacrosse contributor.
