Washington Bayhawks pull a big trade

February 6, 2010 Leave a comment
Press Release:
                             The Bayhawks made their first major move of 2010 on Thursday by acquiring attackman John Christmas, defenseman Ray Megill and goalkeeper Mike Levin from the Boston Cannons in exchange for midfielder Kevin Buchanan and three draft picks, according to Bayhawks General Manager Spencer Ford.
 
“We have been looking for a right handed attackman who can do it all – feed, dodge, score,” said General Manager Spencer Ford. “John Christmas is one of those players who is extremely complete and experienced, and will be a leader for this team. After losing Shawn Nadelen to what is believed to be a season ending injury, the addition of Ray Megill will add a defensive minded player who can contribute in all aspects of defense – a player who can play with a short stick, long stick, and control the entire defensive end of the field. Mike Levin is a proven leader who has won a championship as a starting goalie and his team-first attitude will pay dividends on the back end of the field.”
 
Christmas was the Cannons 1st round pick (5th overall) in the 2005 Collegiate Draft.  He scored 68 goals and recorded 55 assists for the Cannons over 5 seasons, including career high 24 goals and 19 assists in 2007.  Megill was the Cannons 1st round pick (9th overall) in the 2007 Collegiate Draft.  The defensemen appeared in 28 games over 3 seasons with the Cannons.  Levin spent one year with the Cannons and played 9 games in net in 2009 and recorded a 5-2 record.
 
The Bayhawks sent Kevin Buchanan and three draft picks to Boston. Buchanan, 23, played in 6 games last season for the Bayhawks, recording at least 1 point in each game.  He finished the 2009 Season with 7 goals and 6 assists.  Buchanan was the 5th overall pick in the 2008 MLL Collegiate Draft by Los Angeles.  He scored 8 goals and recorded 5 assists in the 2008 season.  Buchanan graduated from Ohio State University in 2008 and that season was named Great Western Lacrosse League Player of the Year.  He recorded 175 points for the Buckeyes over 4 seasons.
 
“I want to thank Kevin for his contributions to this team,” said Ford. “His personality alone will make him a great asset to any team he plays for.” 
 
The Bayhawks open their season on May 15th at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium when they take on the Long Island Lizards at 7 PM. Ticket information is available at www.washingtonbayhawks.com.

I am not afraid to tell it like it is, although Im a fan of DC sports teams I will be critical if they deserve it. DC sports talk covers the wide range of DC sports including the Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals, Washington Wizards, Washington Capitals, Washington Bayhawks, and the sports of local college teams (Virginia, Virginia Tech, George Mason, and Georgetown) We strive and are proud to update the blog several times a day with up to date postings of all the latest DC sports news so add us to your favorites.
