Reid then was sent to Calgary for a fourth-round pick in 2017 and a second-rounder in 2019. Self, 36, was acquired from Rochester just before the 2017 National Lacross…

Buffalo Bandits goalie Anthony Cosmo didn't need to be asked to speak to the media after Saturday's 11-10 loss to the Rochester Knighthawks.

It's funny how a single phone call can have an immediate and large impact on someone's day-to-day life. It happened to Pat Saunders on Monday, when he found out he had been traded from the New England Black Wolves to the Buffalo Bandits.
