PHILADELPHIA WINGS SIGN KEVIN CROWLEY FOR 2013 SEASON
The Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League (NLL) have signed forward Kevin Crowley to a one-year contract for the 2013 season.
Crowley, the Wings’ number one pick in the 2012 NLL entry draft had a prolific rookie campaign, in which he was named to the league’s All-Rookie team and Rookie of the Week three times, the most in the league. The New Westminster, B.C. native scored a team high 36 goals, and tallied 35 assists for 71 points on the season. The forward led all offensive players, recovering 81 loose balls in his first season and scored four goals in Philadelphia’s single playoff game.
“Kevin is one of the top young players in the NLL and we expect him to continue where he left off last season,” said head coach Johnny Mouradian. “With the additions of Kevin Buchanan and Kevin Ross on our left side we have rounded out our offense, and should give Kevin even more room on the right side.”
Prior to joining the Wings last season, Crowley was a standout collegiate player at Stony Brook University. During his four years at Stony Brook, Crowley scored 131 goals and added 101 assists in 60 career games, finishing his career among the best players ever to play for the school. He is the only player in school history to record 100 or more goals and assists and one of just 40 players in NCAA Division I history to accomplish the feat.
The Philadelphia Wings will open the 2013 season at home against the Buffalo Bandits at Wells Fargo Center on Friday, January 11, 2013 at 7 p.m.
The Philadelphia Wings are owned and operated by Philadelphia Wings L.P., whose principal owners are Russ Cline, Chris Fritz and Michael French. Comcast-Spectacor serves as the marketing, promotional, advertising, sponsorship and publicity arm of the Wings
