The thought of Dallas doesn't inspire positive feelings in the city of Philadelphia. As the team prepares for Saturday's home opener, today the Philadelphia Wings acquired their second Dallas - Dallas Squire, a five-year veteran from the New Jersey Storm in exchange for holdout Greg Traynor.
Squire will join All-Pro Goalie Dallas Eliuk and the Wings for the team's home opener this Saturday, January 25, when the team hosts the Colorado Mammoth at the First Union Center at 8 p.m.
"We're very pleased to acquire a player with the experience level of Dallas," said Wings General Manager Marty O'Neill. "Along with his playing skills he will also provide veteran leadership to this inexperienced team."
Squire recorded two assists in three games for the Storm this season. He played five seasons in the National Lacrosse League, including two years with the Albany Attack. The 5'10", 175 pound forward has also seen playing time with the Buffalo Bandits and Rochester Knighthawks. Squire was a second round pick of the Rochester Knighthawks in 1994.
Traynor played five seasons for the Wings (1997-01) and was a member of the 2001 Championship Team. He has been a holdout the last two seasons and has not appeared on the Wings roster.
