(Vancouver, BC – Wednesday, October 30, 2013) – The Vancouver Stealth announced that they have re-signed Captain Kyle Sorensen to a 2 year deal as he enters his 8th season with the organization. Sorensen has played in 91 career NLL games, all with the Stealth, he has 61 points (25g, 36a) and 400 loose balls in his regular season career. He also has a goal, 5 assists and 75 loose balls in 14 career postseason games. When it came time to re-sign the former 2nd overall pick in the 2006 NLL Entry Draft it was a no brainer,
“Kyle is the heart and soul of the Stealth and we could not be happier today to know that he will be in a Vancouver Stealth jersey for the next two seasons,” said President and General Manager Doug Locker.
“He is a great leader, teammate and one of the top players in the National Lacrosse League. His two year agreement recognizes his efforts on our behalf.”
The extension was a mutual feeling as Sorensen was very excited about re-signing for another two years,
“Being a part of this organization is something I have been proud of since day one,” said Sorensen.
“With the team coming up to Canada to play in our home country, it’s a pretty special feeling and to be offered a two year contract is very humbling.”
Sorensen didn’t have to think about his decision for very long when it came time to sign the contract,
“I couldn’t wait to put my name on that sheet of paper,” Sorensen said with excitement.
Sorensen has been a proven winner throughout his career having led the Stealth to a Champions Cup win in 2010 and two trips to the Champions Cup final in the last three years. He has also won 4 Mann Cup titles all with the Peterborough Lakers of the Major Series Lacrosse league. Sorensen would like to see his team competing for the Champions Cup again this year after falling just one win short of the title in the previous year.
“Our ultimate goal is to get back to the Championship game and win the Champions Cup,” said Sorensen about his team.
With the contract negotiations out of the way Sorensen can focus on the team as training camp is set to go at the end of November. The Stealth will begin the 2014 season on the road in Colorado on January 4th followed by their home opener at the Langley Events Centre on January 11th against the Minnesota Swarm.
