Rock Acquire Mitch de Snoo

ROCK ACQUIRE MITCH DE SNOO FROM BUFFALO

Toronto Sends Brock Sorensen, Alec Tulett And First Round Pick To Bandits

Oakville, ON – Toronto Rock General Manager Jamie Dawick continued to improve his top-end defensive talent with the acquisition of gritty defender Mitch de Snoo from the Buffalo Bandits.  Heading down the QEW to Western New York are Brock Sorensen, Alec Tulett and a 2022 conditional 1st round NLL Draft pick.  The pick becomes a 2020 first round pick if Georgia opts to take Toronto’s 2022 pick instead of the 2020 first round pick as part of the Jason Noble trade completed earlier today.

“Mitch is another guy we have pursued for a long time,” said Dawick.  “When the opportunity presented itself to add another top end defender, we were ready to come to an agreement.  I couldn’t be more excited to add him to our roster.  Our staff is very familiar with Mitch having played for the Oakville Rock (MSL) in the summer.  I want to thank Brock Sorensen and Alec Tulett for their contributions to the Rock and wish them success in their next chapter in the NLL.”

The 27-year old de Snoo, like the recently acquired Jason Noble, is a left-handed defender.  The Oshawa, ON native adds an element of nasty to the Rock’s back end and is also one of the league’s best when it comes to scooping up loose balls.  His 86 loose balls in 2020 tied him for the Bandits’ team lead.

“It was definitely a bit of a shock when I found out,” said de Snoo.  “It’s not something I was expecting, but it’s very exciting, especially with the other move today that makes the team very competitive, very quickly.  I have a lot of familiarity with the coaching staff and players from my time in the summer league with Oakville.

“I’m just going to go out there and play the game hard.  I’m more of a defender than a goal scorer, and I’ll be out there to do my best and help the team win.”

de Snoo was originally drafted by the Calgary Roughnecks in the 2nd round, 13th overall in the 2015 NLL Draft.  However, he never played a game for Calgary and was dealt to the Bandits prior to the 2016 season where he was played each of his five NLL seasons.

His Junior A Lacrosse career was spent with the Whitby Warriors, where he was a part of their 2013 Minto Cup Canadian Jr. A championship squad.  His NCAA collegiate lacrosse career took him to Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.

Away from the game, de Snoo studied at the University of Toronto where he earned a master’s degree in laboratory medicine and pathobiology having done research into genetic inheritable forms of Parkinson’s disease.  Currently, he is pursuing a medical degree at U of T, where he just finished his first year of medical school.

The next major date on the NLL’s summer calendar is the opening of the free agent signing period on Aug. 1.
