Major Series Lacrosse Draft Live Blog

IL Indoor brings you live blogging coverage of the Major Series Lacrosse draft of graduating junior players. The draft will start at about 12:30 ET at the league meeting in Whitby. Come back this afternoon to follow the draft as it unfolds live.

For some background on some key players, see my preview of the draft published earlier.

The first big news of the day comes in a change to the protected list for the Brampton Excelsiors. They had formerly announced that they would be protecting Jake Weidner and Dan Keane. It has just been announced that they will not be protecting Weidner. In his place, they will protect Dylan Webster.

12:28 All teams are in place at the table and initial business has been taken care of. Draft to start any minute. Make the jump to see how the draft plays out.
