The National Lacrosse League today announced that Buffalo Bandits forward Mike Accursi has been named the Offensive Player of the Week.
Accursi had his highest offensive output of the season last week against Edmonton as he registered seven points (5+2). Accursi scored the first two goals of the game and added three in the fourth quarter on the way to a game high seven points. He is now third on the Bandits with 17 points (10+7). Accursi was acquired from Edmonton last season for Dan Teat, Buffalo’s second round pick in the 2008 NLL Entry Draft and Buffalo's first round pick in the 2009 NLL Entry Draft.
