• Tyson Roe was more excited about his first National Lacrosse League goal than it probably appeared.The 6-foot-10, 260-pound Duncan product has been a fixture in the Vancouver Stealth lineup since early January, and scored his first NLL goal against the Saskatchewan Rush on Saturday, burying the rebound off a shot by teammate Corey Small. His reaction, he admitted later, was rather subdued.

  • Where were the Vancouver Stealth hiding this guy? The question had to be asked after Eric Penney went from third string to first star overnight. Well, they weren’t hiding him anywhere as it turns out. He was always around, always hoping for another chance to play.

  • For the first time in franchise history, the Vancouver Stealth are going to retire a number from the lineup and into the rafters. Following his retirement announcement, Curtis Hodgson will be immediately honored during a pre-game ceremony on February 10th. Before a showdown with the Rush, the #6 will be hoisted for all in the Langley Events Centre to see. Fitting for a man who competed for 226 games in a Stealth uniform, over the 13 years he spent in the league, all with the same organization.

  • The Vancouver Stealth didn’t have many answers for Mark Matthews and the Saskatchewan Rush last night. (Photo: Josh Schaefer) The situation for the Buffalo Bandits is quite dire, to put it mildly. It’s not much better for the Vancouver Stealth. Both are working desperately to claw their way out from the basement of their respective National Lacrosse League division standings but the problem for both on Saturday was, they both lost.

  • Most NLL fans will know that Tye Belanger has paid his dues in full and will be happy to see him succeed during one of the best phases of his six-year career. The Vancouver goaltender has the second-best save percentage among all NLL goalies, .794, trailing only Colorado’s Dillon Ward, .804, heading into a game in Toronto on Saturday as the Stealth continue to pursue their first playoff berth in the four years they have played out of the Langley Events Centre.

  • You can never have enough of a good thing. It’s a logical conclusion, and one Vancouver Stealth netminder Tye Belanger would endorse – especially when it comes to playing time. The 26-year-old goalie is a big reason the Stealth are battling for a playoff spot in the National Lacrosse League, as he’s taken on the bulk of the crease work the past month. “I spent (what) seems like five, six years as a backup goalie, paying my dues and learning my way from guys I’m behind,” said Belanger

  • Cliff Smith’s return to the Vancouver Stealth roster for another year was a bit delayed, but he’s glad to still be in the mix with the National Lacrosse League squad.Smith, a Surrey native, re-signed with the local pro team on Jan. 25, four games into the current season, his sixth with the franchise.
