Quinn Powless returns in deal for Dawson brothers

Quinn Powless is returning home.
After being traded to the Brampton Excelsiors before last season began, the forward from Six Nations returns to the Pro-Fit Chiefs after the two teams swung a deal this week.
Powless and Reid Acton both return to the Chiefs in exchange for Paul and Dan Dawson.
The Dawson brothers were an immediate impact on the Chiefs during their run for the Mann Cup in 2016, and continued to do so last season.
Powless, still with the Rochester Knighthawks, has had one of his best seasons in the National Lacrosse League with four goals and four assists in nine games.
Acton, a coach at The Hill Academy, has an extensive lacrosse resume - two-time All-American, All-ECAC and team captain at Loyola University in Maryland. During his junior year, he  led the defence to their first ever Division I national championship.
Chiefs president Duane Jacobs is looking forward to seeing both players back in the Chiefs fold.

While Powless and Acton return, the Chiefs welcome goalie Angus Goodleaf to the Chiefs this summer.
Goodleaf is in his ninth NLL season and sixth with the Knighthawks as they try to capture that league's title. The starting goalie for the Iroquois Nationals at the last FIL World Indoor Lacrosse Championships, Goodleaf participated in the Presidents Cup last summer for the Kahnawake Mohawks.

The Chiefs finally get back to business on Saturday night, when they kick off their Major Series Lacrosse season on the road against the Coburg Kodiaks.
Game time is 7 p.m.
On Tuesday June 5, the Chiefs are at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena for the first time, when they host the Peterborough Lakers at 8 p.m. Tickets are still available.
If you are unable to get to the game, the Chiefs will be streaming the game live and online on YouTube for free thanks to our partners at Dreamcatcher Charitable Foundation. The Chiefs are still looking for more streaming sponsors. Any inquires email darrylsmart1@yahoo.ca or call Darryl Smart at 519-865-8089.
