VANCOUVER, BC – The Vancouver Stealth selected Chris Wardle 54th overall in the 2013 NLL Entry Draft.
Wardle was a standout player for the Junior “A” Victoria Shamrocks where he scored 90 points in 21 games this past season. The Victoria native has made huge strides since last year where he scored 41 points in 21 games.
The 6 foot 170 pound forward has shown he can play at the next level, as he even experienced a call up to the Victoria Shamrocks of the WLA, during the playoffs. Wardle stepped into a heated series between Victoria and Langley in the WLA Finals and he never appeared out of place. Wardle added 2 shots on goal, as the Shamrocks won the game 4-3 and went on to win the WLA Final.
