Victoria, BC – The Victoria Shamrocks are thrilled to announce that offensive powerhouse Dan Dawson will be returning to the club in 2015.

Dawson, a 6’ 5” 33-year-old originally from Oakville, ON, played for the Shamrocks in the 2005 – 2007 seasons, where he led the club to a Mann Cup victory in 2005, and had a productive 3 years with the club, racking up an impressive 284 points in 68 regular and post-season games. He has 4 additional Mann Cup rings with Brampton in 2002, 2008, 2009 and 2011, as well as 2 Champion’s Cups in the National Lacrosse League (2013, 2014), and is a 7-time NLL ALL-Pro selection.

“He’s a proven winner who one day will be remembered among the all-time greats in our sport,” said General Manager Chris Welch. “In addition to tremendous skill, he brings intelligence, experience and oustanding leadership qualities to our group.”

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to play for the green and white again,” Dawson said in a statement. “Victoria has the best fans in Canada, and I am honoured to be able to put on the Shamrocks jersey once again 2015.”

“Dan is definitely one of the most popular players to play for the Shamrocks in the modern era,” continued Welch, “and we’re thrilled that the great lacrosse fans of Victoria will get to enjoy watching him with us again this summer.”
