Former University of Denver standouts Cameron Flint and Eric Law were selected in the 2013 National Lacrosse League’s Entry Draft, held at the Toronto Rock Athletic Center (TRAC) in Oakville, Ontario this week.
Flint was chosen as the fourth overall pick in the first round by the Minnesota Swarm, while Law was drafted by the Toronto Rock as the 28th overall pick in the third round.
Minnesota came into the draft with the fifth overall pick, but packaged it along with defenseman Nik Bilic to the Edmonton Rush in exchange for the fourth overall pick. The Swarm used that selection on Flint, who is an athletic midfielder. As team co-captain of the Pioneers in 2013, Flint notched a team-high 37 goals and was a USILA First Team All-American. Flint, who is 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, spent the 2013 summer season playing for the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse (MLL).
A co-captain and three-year starter, Law led the Pioneers with 75 points off 40 goals and 35 assists. He led all DU active players with 146 career points off 83 goals and 66 assists. He was named to the 2013 All-ECAC Second Team. This summer, Law played outdoor lacrosse for the Denver Outlaws, enjoying a phenomenal rookie season including a 9-goal game in their MLL semifinal loss.
