The Buffalo Bandits and Calgary Roughnecks have announced a trade with the Bandits acquiring rookie defenseman Mitch de Snoo from the Roughnecks in exchange for transition player Brandon Goodwin.
“Trading Brandon Goodwin was very difficult,” said Bandits general manager Steve Dietrich. “But with the improvement of Tyler Ferreira and Jerome Thompson we felt that we could use our depth to acquire a very highly touted left handed defenseman in Mitch de Snoo.”
de Snoo was drafted in the second round (13th overall) of the 2015 NLL Entry Draft by Calgary. Before being drafted de Snoo played at Drexel University where he had eight points (7+1) in 15 games for the Dragons.
Goodwin appeared in 10 games for the Bandits and posted seven points (3+4) along with 17 loose balls in his rookie season in 2014. The former first-round draft pick was the ninth overall selection in the 2014 NLL Draft.
