BUFFALO, NY (July 30, 2013) --- Buffalo Bandits General Manager Steve Dietrich today announced that the team has acquired defenseman Rory Smith and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 NLL Entry Draft from the Colorado Mammoth in exchange for Carter Bender, the 18th overall pick in the 2013 draft and a second-round pick in the 2014 draft.

“Rory is a solid defensive defenseman who also brings a dominant physical presence,” Dietrich said. “At 26 years old, he is a player that will be able to help strengthen our defense both now and in the future.”

Smith (6’0”, 200 lbs., 2/1/87) recorded 51 penalty minutes and 37 loose balls in 15 games with the Mammoth last year, also forcing 17 turnovers. In 85 career NLL games with Colorado, New York/Orlando and Minnesota, Smith has totaled six points (0+6), 327 penalty minutes and 237 loose balls. The Mimico, Ontario native was selected as a starter for the West Division in the 2012 NLL All-Star Game in Buffalo.
