The Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs silver anniversary season is beginning to take shape.
With the Major Series Lacrosse season set to begin in about a month, the defending league and Mann Cup champions are taking form with the confirmation of players and coaches.
In goal, the long-awaited return of Brandon Miller will take place.
After being sidelined for the entire 2016 MSL season and most of the 2017 National Lacrosse League season with the Toronto Rock, B-Mills has fully recovered from hip surgery and is champing at the bit to get back on the floor.
He has played in parts of four games with the Rock this season.

In the 2015 MSL season and playoffs, Miller split time with Dillon Ward between the pipes, with Ward taking the reigns last season in his place.
The Chiefs can also confirm the return of Ryan Benesch.
Beni had another great MSL season last year with 13 goals and 21 assists in the regular season and  11 goals and 18 assists in 13 games in the playoffs. In the Mann Cup championship, Benesch led all scorers with 12 goals to capture his first national championship.
With the Buffalo Bandits of the NLL, Benesch scored 29 goals and 31 assists in 13 games this season.
Behind the bench, John Tavares will return to the Chiefs coaching staff after helping guide the offence last season.
The Chiefs begin the season at the Iroquois lacrosse Arena on May 30 against the Coburg Kodiaks at 8 p.m. For season ticket information or if you'd like to be part of the Chiefs family in the form of sponsorship please contact Brennor Jacobs at 519-802-6527.
