Two Bandits will be calling HSBC Arena home for at least one more National Lacrosse League season as the team named Pat McCready a Franchise Player and re-signed Dan Teat to a one-year deal on Thursday.
McCready will enter his seventh season with Buffalo after the team designated the unrestricted free agent as a Franchise Player. The St. Catharines, Ont. native has scored 167 points (59 goals, 108 assists) in 88 games with the Bandits since being acquired in a trade with the Rochester Knighthawks in 2001.
The Bandits also re-signed forward Dan Teat to a one-year contract. Teat was the third leading scorer for Buffalo last season, recording 20 goals and 30 assists in 16 games. The 2008 season will mark Teat's 12th season in the NLL, and his fourth with the Bandits.
