On Friday, the Boston Cannons traded attackman Shawn Evans to the Dallas Rattlers in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2020 MLL draft.
A Peterborough, Ontario native, Evans is a legend in the box game having won two Minto Cup’s, seven Mann Cup’s, and one NLL championship. Evans is a two-time NLL MVP and the only player in history to win a Minto Cup, Mann Cup, and NLL championship within 12 months.
Evans, a four-year MLL veteran, was acquired by Boston in the MLL dispersal draft back in the spring. He has only played in seven games during his MLL career due to the NLL and Box commitments, but has tallied a total of 25 points (14G/11A).
The attackman was drafted in the sixth round of the 2017 supplemental draft by the Chesapeake Bayhawks. He played three games for the Denver Outlaws in 2018 before being acquired by the Ohio Machine late in the season.
Evans has appeared in two games for the Boston Cannons this season after being picked in the MLL dispersal draft back in the spring. He has tallied three points (2G/1A) with the Cannons.
