Outlaws Announce Blockbuster Trade

DENVERThe Outlaws have acquired attackman John Grant Jr., defenseman Michael Simon and the 16th pick in the 2014 Collegiate Draft from the Bayhawks in exchange for attackman Brendan Mundorf.

“It was an opportunity for us to fill a couple of the needs that we saw this year,” Outlaws Head Coach Jim Stagnitta said. “I think that we felt like we got two great players for one great player. We felt like it was a great opportunity for us. We’re going to miss Brendan, and he’s done so much for us and our program, but we’re pleased to add John Grant Jr., who lives in Denver and Mike Simon has a chance to be one of the most dominant defenders in the game moving forward.”

Grant Jr. has played in the league since its inaugural season in 2001 and ranks third in MLL history in goals (253), fifth in assists (131) and third in points (403).

He has scored 20 goals in each of the past two seasons with the Bayhawks, totaling 32 points in both campaigns as well. Denver will be the fifth MLL team that Grant Jr. has played for, having spent time with Rochester, Toronto/Hamilton, Long Island and Chesapeake.
