The Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs have locked up their future.
With the Major Series Lacrosse draft this weekend, the Chiefs have protected Johnny and Quinn Powless.
Like every team in the league, the Chiefs are allowed to protect two local players from being drafted by another team. This year's decision was a no-brainer for general manager Duane Jacobs.
While Johnny is the future of the Chiefs, he's already part of the present, having helped the team capture two Mann Cups.
Although it was supposed to be his MSL and NLL draft years, the local product has already amassed one of the most impressive lacrosse resumes in recent time, having captured two Mann Cups with the Chiefs, three National Lacrosse League Champions Cups with the Rochester Knighthawks, and a Minto Cup with the Six Nations Arrows.
This season he captured all three, garnering national attention, and was a finalist for the Lou Marsh Award,  given to Canada's top athlete.

After the dream season, he was traded to the Vancouver Stealth, and has been a big contributor on and off the floor. This past weekend he had six assists in a 14-13 loss to the Buffalo Bandits.

Quinn is also no stranger to championships.
Having won a Founders Cup in his junior B days with the Six Nations Rebels, he was one of the players carrying the load during the Arrows Minto Cup run.
He scored 26 goals with 48 assists in the regular season butkicked it up to a different level in the  playoffs scoring 22 goals and 42 assists in 19 games.
Thanks to his efforts, Quinn was a first-round pick of the New England Black Wolves in this year's NLL Draft.
In his first two games as a pro,  he's scored one goal and five assists.
With the Powless cousins now in the Chiefs fold, the future looks even brighter for the two-time defending Mann Cup champs.
They join Randy Staats and Warren Hill, who were protected last year. Both of which are now playing for the University of Syracuse Orange.

The 2015 MSL schedule will be released soon. It will be posted as soon as it's available.
