"With his feet still moving, he shifts the puck onto its side, slips his stick underneath it, and cradles it on his blade until he spots a window in the top of the net."

How two kids from London, Ontario birthed the most unique goal in hockey’s history.

A well deserved honor!

Late Rusty Doxtdator honoured by CLA

It’s an honour the late Rusty Doxtdator would have accepted with his kind-hearted smile.
This week, the Canadian Lacrosse Association named Doxtdator the 2020 ricient of the Lester B. Pearson Award. The award in annually given to a member of the Canadian lacrosse community in recognition of outstanding contributions of sportsmanship and leadership in the game of lacrosse and to the physical and mental development of young Canadians through unselfish dedication as a volunteer.
Doxtdator had a long-term involvement in the lacrosse community, serving at the national level for six years. He served as the Indigenous director on the CLA board of directors from 2014-2019. Doxtdator passed away three months after handing this position on to the new Indigenous director in November 2019.
The CLA and the lacrosse community lost a positive figure who championed the sport and its Indigenous roots.
“Rusty is a deserving recipient of the Lester B. Pearson Award,” CLA director of marketing Terry Rowland said. “He dedicated many years to lacrosse and now is the perfect time to recognize his accomplishments and show gratitude for all that he did for the sport of lacrosse in Canada.”
In his role as Indigenous director, Doxtdator chaired the CLA Indigenous Development Committee meetings, helped the CLA adopt more culturally appropriate language and terminology, and nurtured relationships between the CLA and Indigenous organizations. He also helped with the 150th anniversary of lacrosse that was celebrated in 2017, which included two re-enactments of Indigenous lacrosse games played in the past. Additionally, Doxtdator served as the CLA convenor for the 2017 Presidents’ Cup held in Six Nations.
“Rusty was an integral member of the CLA’s board of directors for many years. This award will be presented to Rusty’s family later this year in his honour. His contributions to lacrosse and to celebrating our sport’s Indigenous roots lives on,” said Shawn Williams, CLA president.
One of the initiatives Doxtdator spearheaded was a positive image campaign. This involved the creation and distribution of stickers with the slogan “Honour Our Game,” which was intended to help provide a positive image for the sport of lacrosse.
Doxtdator will be remembered as an active participant in the Canada Games Committee leading to the inclusion of lacrosse in the 2021 Canada Summer Games.

https://www.insidelacrosse.com/article/what-the-greats-are-saying-about-pat-spencer/54609 spencer's lacrosse eligibility ends and it looks like he is going to stay in school for a season of basketball. box lacrosse is much more like basketball than hockey. has anyone from the NLL reached out to him to see if he is interested. i don't think he has ever played box but his basketball pedigree would lend me to think that he would be a quick learner.
