The Denver Outlaws finalized their official roster for the 2018 regular season, it was announced on Tuesday.
The 25-man active roster features 16 returning players from last year’s team that clinched the No. 1 seed in the MLL playoffs and advanced to the championship game. Highlighted by MLL All-Star Josh Hawkins, University of Denver graduate Christian Burgdorf and Colorado native Wilkins Dismuke, nine newcomers made the active roster.
The Outlaws return six of their seven leading scorers from last season in Eric Law, Matt Kavanagh, Jeremy Sieverts, Zach Currier, Wes Berg and Drew Snider. Notable returners on the defensive side are MLL All-Stars Matt Bocklet and Michael Simon and the 2017 MLL Goalie of the Year Jack Kelly.
Six players, including Toma Tamura and Kaisuke Iwamoto of Team Tokyo and Metro State University graduate Forrest Lambert, were placed on the Outlaws’ practice squad.
Berg, Currier and goalie Dillon Ward will begin the season on the MLL Inactive List until the completion of their National Lacrosse League seasons, and midfielder Brent Adams was placed on the physically unable to perform list.
