Chesapeake Bayhawks acquire UMBC alum Peet Poillon from Charlotte

Midfielder Peet Poillon (UMBC, Howard Community College) has been acquired by the Chesapeake Bayhawks in a trade with the Charlotte Hounds announced Tuesday.

In exchange for Poillon, Charlotte will receive Chesapeake’s second-round pick (9th overall) in the 2014 Major League Lacrosse collegiate draft. The trade occurred just prior to the MLL's deadline for teams to submit their 23-man protected list; Poillon was then named to the list.

“Peet was a former Bayhawk and has been a consistent scorer in the league,” Bayhawks coach Dave Cottle said. “He has been on two teams in championship contention and won one with the Bayhawks, so Peet has been around a lot of winning. We are excited to add his quickness to the team and get him back as a player.”

Poillon was picked 20th overall in the 2009 collegiate draft (3rd round) by the Boston Cannons and then claimed by Chesapeake on waivers; he played two games in his rookie season.

In his second season with the Bayhawks, Poillon appeared in all 12 regular-season games, recording 24 goals (including two 2-pointers) and 15 assists for a total of 41 points. Poillon spent 2011 and 2012 with the Denver Outlaws and was then moved to the Hounds during the expansion year in 2012. The Pennsylvania native has 98 goals and 37 assists for 146 points in his six-year career.  

"Charlotte was a fantastic experience -- a first-class organization and group of guys,” Poillon said. “However, this trade is special for me. Returning to the team that gave me my first shot in this league and again playing with a group of teammates and coaches I once won a championship with is an opportunity I am thrilled about."

Bayhawks announced protected roster

The Bayhawks have announced their 23-man protected roster for 2014.  All players left unprotected will be entered in the player pool.

Chesapeake will have the opportunity to fill its 40-man roster in the supplemental draft, which will be held on Dec. 4, and the collegiate draft which will take place on Jan. 10at the US Lacrosse convention in Philadelphia, PA.

Here is the 23-man protected roster:
