STEALTH HEADED TO BANDITLAND
Vancouver, BC (Friday, January 12, 2017) - The Vancouver Stealth are set to go on a two-game road trip which first sees them visit the Buffalo Bandits inside the Keybank Center on Saturday night.
"A road game in a tough environment might be what the doctor ordered for Vancouver right now," said play-by-play commentator Jake Elliott. "There is a good chance we might see some line up changes which should give some new opportunities to some guys. It will also be fun to watch the dynamic between Tony Malcom and Jordan Durston especially since they both are coming off their best games of the season with their new teams."
This will be the first bout between the Stealth and Bandits since the NLL Draft Day trade that sent Tony Malcom and the 12th overall pick (Ryan Fournier) to Vancouver and Jordan Durston to Buffalo. Durston is coming off a 2 goal and 3 assist performance in Week 5, while Malcom had 1 goal and 2 assists last week.
"Having the opportunity to get this season turned around in the city where I started my career only adds to the excitement surrounding the game," said Tony Malcom. "We believe our team matches up extremely well with the Bandits and are confident with our preparation."
Jake Elliott will have the call on TSN and the game will be replayed at 9:00PM PST on TSN 1410. The game can also be seen on NLL TV, with face off at 4:30pm PST.
Vancouver will be off all next week with a bye. Heading into Week 8, the Stealth will play back-to-back games including another road game on Friday, January 26, 2018, against the Colorado Mammoth and then they return home on January 27, 2018, against the defending NLL Champions, the Georgia Swarm.
Tickets to the next home game are still available including single game tickets, 3 and 5 game Flex Packs and Boston Pizza Packs, which feature four tickets, one large pizza, four soft drinks and a cactus cut appetizer for $99 at all local Boston Pizzas. The Stealth are also offering Group Promotions for 10 or more tickets at a discounted rate. Stay up-to-date with all breaking news and ticketing information by visiting StealthLAX.com
