Brett Bucktooth is today’s featured player.
The 6’1”, 205 lbs. attack man is a member of the Oneida Nation and was acquired by the Vancouver Stealth in 2012. In 2006, he was selected third overall in the NLL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Bandits.
According to the Stealth’s web site, Bucktooth has appeared in 77 regular season games and 11 playoff games in his NLL career, scoring 180 points (77 g, 106a) and 35 playoff points (14g, 21a).
Bucktooth played for the Nationals in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship games, helping the team earn silver medals in 2007 and 2011.
He comes from a strong lacrosse family. His father, Freeman "Boss" Bucktooth, coached the 2012 U19 team in Finland.
Good luck, Brett!
