(Rochester, NY) - Rochester Knighthawks General Manager and Vice President of Lacrosse Operations Dan Carey announced today that the team has signed forward Kyle Dawson to a two-year contract, pending league approval.

Dawson completed his Junior career during the 2019 season with the Nanaimo Timbermen, where he was named the British Columbia Junior A Lacrosse League's most sportsmanlike player while scoring 25 goals and 47 points in 25 games. The Florence, Ontario, native also played six seasons (2013-18) of Junior B lacrosse with the Wallaceburg Red Devils, totaling 267 points (143+124) over 92 career games and adding 41 points (22+19) in 17 playoff appearances.
