MLL: Bayhawks' Hubbard Sidelined for 2009

from press release

The Washington Bayhawks of Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, have learned that veteran attackman Jesse Hubbard (Princeton, ‘98) will miss the entire 2009 MLL season after suffering a herniated disc in his neck.
 
Hubbard, who has played in the League since its inception in 2001, was one of the New Jersey Pride's original three assigned players along with Jon Hess and Jay Jalbert. Appearing in 95 regular season games, Hubbard trails only Scott Urick (97), Chris Schiller (98), and Tim Goettlemann (98) in total regular season games played.
 
Hubbard spent seven seasons with the Pride before being traded to the Los Angeles Riptide prior to the start of the 2008 season. His best season for New Jersey came in 2002 when he scored an MLL single-season record 54 goals, including 4 two-pointers, and 9 assists for a total of 67 points.  Hubbard led the League in goals scored in 2001, 2002, and 2003.
 
Last season, with a four-goal performance versus the Philadelphia Barrage at L.A.'s Home Depot Center on July 26, Hubbard eclipsed Mark Millon's all-time record of 239 career goals to become the League's all-time goals leader.

Scoring 26 goals with Los Angeles in 2008, Hubbard has scored a total of 247 goals. In addition to being the League leader in goals scored, Hubbard is fifth all-time in points scored with 352, sixth all-time in game-winning goals with 7, seventh in two-point goals with 16, and is also tied for eighth all-time in assists with 89.
 
A five-time MLL All-Star, Hubbard was assigned to the Washington Bayhawks this past offseason.
 
While playing at Princeton University, Hubbard won three NCAA Championships in 1996, 1997, and 1998. With 163 goals, he is Princeton's all-time leader in goals scored.
