League To Hold Dispersal Draft Of Montreal Express Players

By National Lacrosse League

The National Lacrosse League will hold a Dispersal Draft of the Montreal Express players on the morning of Saturday, September 21st in Toronto. The Dispersal Draft will be conducted prior to the 2002 Entry Draft, which is scheduled for 12pm on September 21st at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

The Dispersal Draft will allow the League's twelve member clubs to select players from the Montreal Express team roster. Earlier this month, the League's Board of Governors granted a one-year suspension to the Montreal Express franchise, as requested by team ownership.

The Dispersal Draft will consist of two rounds. Pursuant to League By-Laws, teams that did not make the playoffs shall have priority of selection in reverse order of the previous year's League standing. In the case of similar won-loss records, tiebreakers are used to determine the order. The League Champion goes last in the selection process, the runner-up team goes next to last.

The order is as follows:


Selection (Overall) Team

1 (1) Calgary

2 (2) Ottawa

3 (3) Columbus

4 (4) Ottawa (from New Jersey)

5 (5) New York

6 (6) Buffalo

7 (7) Philadelphia

8 (8) Denver

9 (9) Vancouver

10 (10) Rochester

11 (11) Albany

12 (12) Toronto


1 (13) Calgary

2 (14) Ottawa

3 (15) Columbus

4 (16) Ottawa (from New Jersey)

5 (17) New York

6 (18) Buffalo

7 (19) Philadelphia

8 (20) Denver

9(21) Vancouver

10 (22) Rochester

11 (23) Albany

12 (24) Toronto

Any team selecting a Montreal Express player in the Dispersal Draft must immediately release a player from their own 23-man final regular season roster. Teams have the option to pass on making a selection.
