Black Wolves Announce 2017-18 Schedule

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (September 8, 2017) – The New England Black Wolves will open the 2017-18 National Lacrosse League season on December 8th against the defending champion Georgia Swarm.

That will be the first of three games in December for the Black Wolves, with a December 23rd stop in Saskatchewan before wrapping up the month at home against the Vancouver Stealth on December 29th.

We are very excited for the 2017-18 season to begin,” Black Wolves General Manager Rich Lisk said. “It has been a long offseason and we are ready to get going. The upcoming season will be a special one.”

The Black Wolves are coming off its second postseason appearance in 2017, advancing to the East Division Semifinal before falling to the Toronto Rock. The team returns a prolific scorer in veteran forward Shawn Evans, a two-time NLL MVP and the only player in league history to record 100 or more points in five consecutive seasons. Also returning in 2017-18 are forwards Kevin Crowley and Kevin Buchanan, both key contributors to the team’s success last season. The Black Wolves will look to add more talent on September 17th with three picks – 8, 10 and 17 – in the NLL Entry Draft in Toronto.

New England will host Friday night games against Buffalo on February 9th and March 23rd, and Toronto on March 16th. Sunday afternoon games at Mohegan Sun Arena include tilts against Rochester on January 21st, Colorado on February 18th and Calgary on April 18th before wrapping up the season at home against Georgia on April 29th. 

2018 season tickets are on sale now and start at just $17 per game. In addition, special on-field experiences are available for groups of 10 or more. Tickets can be purchased by calling 844-LAX-WOLF.
