March 4, 2006
BALTIMORE, Md. - The defending Major League Lacrosse champion Baltimore Bayhawks have re-acquired attackman Mark Millon from the San Francisco Dragons, it has been announced by team officials.
In exchange for Millon, the Dragons will receive the Bayhawks' first round pick in the May 31 Collegiate Draft. As a result of winning last year's league championship, Baltimore had the tenth overall selection in the draft.
"While I had a lot of fun in Boston last year, I couldn't be more excited about coming back to Baltimore," Millon said. "I had four exciting years here and look forward to finishing my career in a Bayhawks uniform."
A five-year veteran, Millon spent the first four seasons in Baltimore before being traded to Boston at the beginning of last year. In 12 games during the regular season, Millon scored 38 goals with 18 assists and helped the Cannons to a league best tying 10-2 record. Against Baltimore on July 31, the University of Massachusetts graduate recorded a league-record 14 points with a nine-goal, five assist effort in the Cannons' 25-13 victory at Johnny Unitas ® Stadium.
Named as the co-recipient of the Bud Light MVP award last season, Millon is tied as the MLL's all time leader in points scored. Millon has scored 206 career goals, and 95 career assists. His 206 career goals are the most by any player in league history. He is also the league's career leader with 41 hat tricks.
During his four years with the Bayhawks, Millon scored a team-record 158 goals and recorded 249 points, which are the most in team history. He scored 68 points during the 2003 season in being named as the Warrior MLL Offensive Player of the Year for the second straight year.
"I have a lot of respect for the Baltimore organization, its players and the fans and I look forward to getting out there and competing for another championship," Millon said.
Millon was acquired by the Dragons with the seventh overall pick in November's Expansion Draft.
