The Minnesota Swarm have announced that the team has re-signed defenseman Greg Downing to a one-year contract for the 2015 National Lacrosse League season, pending league approval.

Downing, 29, appeared in all 18 games with the Swarm in 2014, and ranked second on the team with 28 forced turnovers. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound lefty defenseman also notched eight points (3g, 5a) and collected 69 loose balls in his third full season with the Swarm, sixth in the NLL. Downing has totaled 51 points (10g, 41a) and 446 loose balls in 87 career games. Despite missing half of the 2012 season due to a knee injury, Downing has yet to miss a game the past two seasons, and has been a regular fixture on Minnesota’s defensive unit.

“Greg is one of the most consistent performers on our roster,” said Swarm Owner and Governor John Arlotta. “While he may not always get the recognition that he deserves, Greg’s skills on the defensive side and his presence in the locker room are very valuable to our team. He’s well respected amongst his teammates and his work ethic sets a great example for our younger players."
