San Jose Stealth Assistant Captain Curtis Hodgson was named the National Lacrosse League’s Transition Player of the Week today after his performance in the Stealth’s 16-6 win over the Edmonton Rush January 31. It was an important win for the Stealth, who improved to 2-3 on the year.
Hodgson finished with two goals and two assists against the Rush. He also picked up eight loose balls and won the only face-off he took. His first tally of the game came midway through the second quarter to put the Stealth up 5-0. His second came at the start of the fourth quarter with the Stealth short-handed to make the score 12-5. Both of his assists came late in the fourth as the Stealth put the finishing touches on the 16-6 victory.
