Rhys Duch, Andrew Suitor: Lacrosse Classified, Ep. 22
Lacrosse All Stars Network
On this week's X-Treme Threads Lacrosse Classified, we remember the Humboldt Broncos tragedy of a year ago, recap all of week 17's action in the NLL and question who is in charge of the 3-star selection at some NLL games.Our first guest is righty forward Rhys Duch of the Calgary Roughnecks and Victoria Shamrocks. Duch was the longest serving member of the Vancouver Stealth before being released by the team before the start of this season and being picked up almost immediately by the Roughnecks, before leading the early season charge by the Roughnecks in the absence of Curtis Dickson and Wes Berg.Our second guest is Andrew Suitor of the New England Black Wolves and the Peterborough Lakers. The nine season veteran with prior stints in Minnesota, New England, Rochester and Vancouver, Suitor is a grinding defender that isn't afraid to drop the mitts, and is perhaps most famous for his two fights with Geoff Snider.We wrap things off with another edition of Stampede Tack #WhoYaGot, where Evan has expanded his lead to 6 games and Jake starts to take risks to try to catch up with just 3 weeks remaining in the regular season. We also discuss NLL division realignment and feedback on the expansion draft article, including one interesting situation in Philly.As always we thank our other sponsors, Pure Vita Labs and Associated Labels and Packaging.

It's the Final Countdown as we enter week 18 of the 2016 NLL season. Just as I had hoped, it'll all come down to the final games making for an thrilling finish as four teams battle for the last two spots and the three teams battle for first overall. Rhys Duch of the Vancouver Stealth stops by to talk about the team's must win game Friday night in Denver. It's do it die and as fans, we wouldn't want it any other way. Plus, we'll break down the NLL scoring race, rookie records and more on this week's OTCBPodcast.
