Crowley to Bayhawks Headlines Quiet MLL Trade Deadline

from LaxMagazine.com Staff Reports | Twitter

On an otherwise relatively quiet Major League Lacrosse trade deadline, the Chesapeake Bayhawks landed reigning league MVP Kevin Crowley from the Florida Launch along with a 2015 4th Round draft pick in exchange for midfielders Steven Brooks, David Earl and Jon Hayes.

Crowley, who has 17 points so far this season, could provide an immediate spark for the Bayhawks, who are 3-7 and at the bottom of the league, but two games behind Boston (5-5) in the fourth spot to make the playoffs with four games remaining. The Team Canada member scored 38 goals last season, which could bode well for the anemic Bayhawks offense, which has scored fewer goals (108) than any other teams this summer.

Brooks is the high scorer this year out of the trio headed to Florida, with six goals and three assists (one goal being a 2-pointer). Earl (2G, 1A) and Hayes have appeared in a combined three games this summer. Florida (4-6) is a game out of a playoff spot.

Earlier in the week, New York sent defender Steven Waldeck and a 7th round draft pick in 2015 to Ohio in exchange for a second round pick in that same 2015 draft.
