Calling defenseman Bill O'Brien a fan favorite in New England might be an understatement. The recently-signed Buffalo Bandit spent the previous three National Lacrosse League seasons with the Black Wolves, endearing himself to the local fanbase through his work in the community and rough play on the floor. So, there was a heavy backlash when New England cut the former S…

The Stealth stormed back, and Joel McCready beat Alex Buque in overtime to clinch an 11-10 Vancouver victory. Vancouver's Corey Small, who had a natural hat trick in the second, finished with four goals and four assists, while L…

The Buffalo Bandits had been eyeing forward Jordan Durston for a while before they acquired him hours before the National Lacrosse League Draft in September. Buffalo General Manager Steve Dietrich said the Bandits had been inquiring about the young forward for a year before a trade was finally completed. After months of back and forth negotiation, he finally found a ret…

Buffalo Bandits goalie Alex Buque and the entire defensive unit entered Saturday's game against the Calgary Roughnecks with plenty of uncertainty after a pair of disastrous performances the past two weeks. Buffalo was blown out twice on the road, falling 21-11 to the Rochester Knighthawks on Dec. 23 and 20-13 to the Toronto Rock on Dec. 30. Buque was pulled in the fi…

Just two weeks ago, Buffalo Bandits goalie Zach Higgins wasn't thinking about a return to the National Lacrosse League at all. The six-year NLL veteran, who played only one game last season, was out of a job in the league. He was preparing to play for the Oshawa Outlaws of the Arena Lacrosse League, a pay-to-play Ontario-based developmental box league. It's a decent …

TORONTO -- The Buffalo Bandits may have a defensive problem. Last week's 21-11 loss to the Rochester Knighthawks could be written off. The K-Hawks are one of the hottest offenses in the league, burying both the Bandits and Calgary Roughnecks in their first two games. But after allowing 20 goals again, this time in a 20-13 loss to the Toronto Rock Saturday, there's so…
