Black Wolves Acquire Petkoff In Trade

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (March 25, 2015) – The New England Black Wolves have acquired Drew Petkoff and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 NLL Entry Draft from the Buffalo Bandits in exchange for New England’s second round pick in the 2016 NLL Entry Draft, pending league approval.

“We are looking forward to Drew joining our team,” New England head coach Blane Harrison said. “He gives us some grit, toughness and sandpaper as we begin the second half of our season.”

Petkoff saw action in three games for Buffalo in 2013, picking up two assists and nine loose balls. Prior to joining the Bandits as a free agent, the defenseman spent three seasons in Toronto. As a rookie in 2010, he dished out five assists and picked up 74 loose balls in 12 games.

The Black Wolves return to action on Sunday, March 29th, hosting the Minnesota Swarm at 1 p.m. at Mohegan Sun Arena. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call 1-844-LAX-WOLF (529.9653) or e-mail tickets@blackwolves.com.
