The NLL entry draft will take place on Saturday August 28th. For the first time ever, it will be in Buffalo, New York. The draft isn’t the only event going on that weekend. On Friday August 27th, eight former players and two referees will be inducted into the NLL hall of fame, which will include former Buffalo Bandits player Shawn Williams.

This is very exciting for the city of Buffalo. If you ever been to a lacrosse game and live in Buffalo, you know how ravid the fanbase is. The last time Buffalo held a draft for any sport was in 2016 when the NHL draft took place in KeyBank Center. Funny enough, this is where the 2021 NLL draft will be located. With the regular season not getting started until December, it will be nice to see some lacrosse action going on for the first time since March 2020 when Covid-19 shut everything down.
What Will Be Happening During the NLL Draft?
As I mentioned before, ten members will be inducted into the NLL hall of fame. NLL commissioner Nick Sakiewicz and Mike French, who is the chairman of the NLL will induct eight players and two referees. The players include Colin Doyle, Kevin Finneran, John Grant Jr., Casey Powell, Pat McCready, Regy Thorpe, Steve Toll and the aforementioned Shawn Williams. The two referees are Roy Condon and Bill Fox.
The draft itself will take place the following night. The hometown crowd won’t have to wait long to see who will be taken by the Bandits as Buffalo will pick third overall. I think it’s going to be good way to wrap up the Summer if you’re a lacrosse fan and as a fan who lives in Buffalo. I am very excited for this event.
