Rochester Knighthawks General Manager and Vice President of Lacrosse Operations Dan Carey announced today that the team has acquired transition man player Jordan Stouros from the Buffalo Bandits in exchange for Rochester’s fifth-round pick in the 2024 NLL Entry Draft.
Stouros, 26, appeared in 10 games with the Bandits as a rookie in 2021-22, recording 24 loose ball recoveries and seven penalty minutes while helping Buffalo to a league-best 14-4 record as regular season champions and an appearance in the NLL Finals.
Prior to turning pro, the Ottawa, Ontario, native played 64 games and recorded 11 points (6+5) during a four-year collegiate career for the Limestone University Saints. He led the team to the 2017 NCAA Division II National Championship and another appearance in the finals in 2019.
He was named the USILA-Warrior Division II Long Pole Midfielder of the Year and was named a USILA All-American after his junior season in 2019 and 2020.

Stouros is also a four-time Mann Cup champion, having won four consecutive titles with the Peterborough Lakers, with whom he also led to four straight of Major Series Lacrosse championships from 2017 to 2022 (2020 and 2021 seasons cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic).
The 5-foot-11, 200-pound transition man was originally selected by the Bandits in the second round (23rd overall) of the 2020 NLL Entry Draft.
