On Friday, the Rochester Knighthawks signed Dan Lintner and Steve Fryer. Lintner has signed a two-year deal with the Knighthawks while Fryer’s just signed a one-year contract with the franchise. Both players were selected by the Knigthawks in the NLL Expansion Draft a few weeks ago.
Lintner comes to Rochester after spending his first four seasons in the NLL with the Toronto Rock. This past season, Lintner had a career year, tallying 37 points (20G/17A) while also chasing down 60 loose balls and causing eight turnovers.
The forward has a career total of 107 points (62G/45A). Lintner has been rising each season and is expected to be a big factor in Rochester’s offense, especially with the other offensive talent they have on the floor.
Fryer comes to Rochester after spending two seasons with the Colorado Mammoth. He has also spent time in Buffalo, Toronto, and Philadelphia during his career.
After payed his dues as a backup many believe that Fryer is ready to take over as a full time starter and thrive. He made 78 saves and had a save percentage of .857 while playing 119:52 minutes last season. In addition, he went 1-1 in starts during the 2019 season.
