Posted at 5:44 PM, Jul 16, 2018

A number of transactions were made today by the Buffalo Bandits that have to do with the NLL Expansion Draft.

“We’re excited to be able to keep the core of our roster together, but it is always tough to lose individuals that have given a lot to our organization,” General Manager Steve Dietrich said in a press release. “I’d like to thank all four players for their hard work and I wish them the very best with their new teams.”

As part of the moves, the Bandits have traded defenseman Zac Reid to the Philadelphia Wings in exchange for Expansion Draft considerations. The Wings have also selected forward Vaughn Harris and goaltender Davide DiRuscio from the Bandits as part of the NLL Expansion Draft.

The team has also acquired defenseman Bryce Sweeting from the San Diego Seals in exchange for defenseman Ethan Schott and a second-round pick (No. 17 overall) in the 2018 NLL Draft.

Sweeting recently completed his third NLL season and grabbed career highs in games played, goals, assists, points and loose ball recoveries.
