The Buffalo Bandits signed four players to one-year contracts, including defenseman Ethan Schott, a second-round pick in the 2017 National Lacrosse League draft. Forward Zach Tomkinson and defensemen Justin Pychel and John Rae are the other signings, the club announced.
Tomkinson rejoins the Bandits after spending time on their practice squad last season. Pychel spent two seasons on the Rochester Knighthawks' practice squad after appearing in nine games for the Vancouver Stealth in 2014. Rae appeared in five games for the Knighthawks last season.
