Denver Outlaws midfielder Cam Holding was acquired by the Outlaws in a midseason trade with the Chesapeake Bayhawks.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Canadian was the second overall pick in the 2014 MLL Supplemental Draft. He spent the last three seasons with the Colorado Mammoth of the National Lacrosse League, and has appeared in 49 regular-season games. Holding recorded 42 points on 13 goals and 29 assists and also scooped up 245 ground balls during his time in the NLL.
Holding attended Grant Valley State University and Florida Southern University for college, playing at each school for two years. He led GVSU to the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Division II National Championship in 2011.
A native of Whitby, Ont., Canada, Holding moved to Michigan in 2005 where he attended DeWitt High School and helped his father start the lacrosse program at the school.
“Cam Holding is very good all-around lacrosse player that we have been interested in for quite some time,” Outlaws General Manager Tony Seaman said after Denver acquired him.
In just three games with the Outlaws, Holding has amassed three points on a goal and two assists.
Holding will be playing in his first World Championships, representing team Canada.
