PHILADELPHIA WINGS DESIGNATE FRANCHISE TAG ON VETERANS BRODIE MERRILL AND BRANDON MILLER
The Philadelphia Wings, of the National Lacrosse League, have used their franchise player designations on Captain Brodie Merrill and goaltender Brandon Miller for the 2014 season which commences on Sunday, January 12, when the Wings host the Buffalo Bandits at Wells Fargo Center at 4 p.m. By placing the franchise tag on a player, the team retains the players’ rights for the 2014 season.
“Brandon is the cornerstone of the defense and the longest tenured member of the Wings. Brodie is arguably one of the best leaders in the sport of lacrosse,” said Team President Michael French. “Combined, they are the heart and soul of the Philadelphia Wings.”
Merrill and Miller collectively have over 21 seasons of experience in the NLL and represent the core of the Wings leadership.
Merrill, a transition player from Orangeville, Ontario, Canada, appeared in 14 games last season. Statistically he finished with 10 goals, 16 assists, and 123 loose balls recovered.
Miller was named to the NLL All-Pro Second Team last season. He appeared in 15 games and compiled 556 saves while only allowing 12.12 goals per game. Miller reached a career milestone by recording his 4,000th save in 2013.
