Bandits sign Kevin Brownell, Dallas Bridle

The Buffalo Bandits signed transition player Kevin Brownell and forward Dallas Bridle to two-year contracts on Monday, pending league approval.

Brownell, a 6-foot-1-inch, 179-pounder, scored three goals with 11 assists in 17 regular-season games last season. He recovered 74 loose balls and caused 13 turnovers.

The Millgrove, Ont., native scored two points (one goal, one assist) in four playoff games.

One of two alternate captains, Brownell is the third-longest member of the Bandits, having played 108 games in Buffalo.

Brownell, who was taken by the Bandits in the third round of the 2012 National Lacrosse League Entry Draft, has 96 career regular-season points, with 32 goals.

In the postseason, Brownell has recorded seven points (two goals, five assists) in nine games.

He has recovered 514 loose balls in his career, and is one short of tying Kyle Couling for 10th in franchise history.

Brownell played college lacrosse at Robert Morris University.

Bridle, at 6 feet, 2 inches and 290 pounds, spent the majority of last season on the Bandits’ practice squad.

He recorded two assists and picked up three loose balls in his one game with the Bandits last season. He was drafted by Buffalo in the third round of the 2017 draft.

The Orangeville, Ont., native played college lacrosse at Denver University, where he was a member of the Pioneers’ 2015 National Championship team as a sophomore, before finishing his college career at High Point University in North Carolina.
