San Diego, California
The San Diego Seals news has been relatively quiet for sometime now, but with the expansion draft looming things are starting to pick up for San Diego’s newest professional team.
The Seals, via trade with the New England Black Wolves, filled roster spot number one with forward Kyle Buchanan.
The 30-year-old is a six-year veteran in the National Lacrosse League and has proven to be a consistent, reliable player.
In his six NLL seasons and 98 career games the right handed forward has posted 131 goals and 199 assists.
Not only is he a reliable player on the field, but a proven leader and excellent example for his team.
According to SealsLax.com, Buchanan played the 2014 and 2015 seasons without registering a single penalty minute which lead him to receiving the 2015 NLL Sportsmanship Award.
San Diego shipped away a 2018 second-round draft pick and a 2021 third-round pick in exchange for Buchanan and a 2018 third-round pick.
