Charlotte Hounds acquire Danowski, Berger and picks in blockbuster trade


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (December 7, 2011) – The Hounds war room was buzzing with scenarios and excitement leading up and into the 2012 MLL Expansion Draft.  After discussions with the Long Island Lizards, the Hounds selected Max Quinzani with the 4th overall selection and immediately dealt him to the Lizards as part of a huge deal.  

The Hounds traded Max Quinzani and the #1 overall 2012 MLL Collegiate Pick for former Team USA starting attackman Matt Danowski (A), Stephen Berger (M), the 20th overall 2012 MLL Collegiate Pick and a 3rd Round 2013 MLL Collegiate Pick.

The 2012 MLL Collegiate Draft is loaded with talent, particularly at the top.  Rob Pannell and Steele Stanwick are highly coveted and will make an immediate,  positive impact wherever they land.  Despite the strength in the Draft, we saw an opportunity to leverage the top pick to bring in two of the top 20 players in the league.” said Wade Leaphart.   

“We’re thrilled.  We see Matt and Stephen as building blocks for us.  Two great MLL pros with a rich pedigree,” added Coach Mike Cerino.
