(Hamilton, March 9)… Hamilton Nationals midfielder Jordan Hall was named the National Lacrosse League’s Transition Player of the Week today for his efforts Saturday with the Rochester Knighthawks. Hall led Rochester with a season-high six points (3+3) and added six loose balls in game at Buffalo. His second goal tied the game at six and capped a three-goal comeback at the end of the third quarter.
It was the second straight week, and third time this season, that Hall received the league honor. On February 26th, he notched four points (0+4) in the home win over the Edmonton Rush. “Guys are getting more comfortable with me in the lineup and vice versa, and I am getting more comfortable with them,” said the Delaware grad. “Hopefully, we’ll keep gelling and building on it.”
The 26 year old now has six goals and 12 assists in six games as a Knighthawk. Hall was acquired third overall in the dispersal draft of Orlando Titans players this offseason. Last season, he was named a Second Team All-Pro and led all transition players in assists with 58, finishing fourth overall in the league in the category.
Hall enters his fifth season in the MLL in 2011 and third with the Nationals. Last season, he was tied for second on the team in points with 19 in 12 games. The Vancouver, BC, product won back-to-back MLL titles, winning in 2008 with the Rochester Rattlers and 2009 with the Toronto Nationals.
