News Release

BOSTON, MA - The Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse, the premier outdoor professional lacrosse league, today announced the signing of All-Star midfielder Kyle Denhoff from the MLL Player Movement.

Denhoff played for the Rochester Rattlers his last five seasons before entering Player Movement in September. Denhoff was one of sixteen players who filed for Player Movement before September 22. As compensation, the Cannons will be sending a fifth-round collegiate draft pick to Rochester. The two-time MLL All-Star is currently a Boston resident who is excited to begin the second half of his career here with the Cannons.

"I'm very excited to be joining the Boston Cannons organization," said Denhoff. "I look forward to meeting my new teammates and coaching staff. After moving to Boston in 2015, I fell in love with the city and am excited to represent the Cannons on and off the field."

Denhoff played collegiately from 2009 to 2012 at St. John Fisher College, where he had 132 goals and 48 assists in 66 career games. He made his MLL debut in 2013 with Rochester and remained there for five seasons, scoring 47 goals, 3 two-point goals, and 12 assists for a total of 62 points. He is coming off a 15-point season with eleven goals, one two-pointer, and three assists.

The Cannons are hoping Denhoff, 6-0 and 190 pounds, will add some strength and offense to the midfield unit.

"We are thrilled to welcome Kyle Denhoff to the Cannons family," stated Cannons Head Coach Sean Quirk. "Kyle is a proven two-way midfielder in the league and has been an MLL All-Star twice already. His blue-collar work ethic, character, leadership and style of play is going to be of tremendous value to our culture and success on the field this coming season."

The Cannons will continue to fill out the roster in anticipation of the 23-man protective list due today. Season Tickets for the Cannons' 2018 season are available beginning on Monday, October 2nd by calling 617-746-9933, emailing tickets@bostoncannons.com or visiting BostonCannons.com.
