ROCHESTER – The Rochester Knighthawks announced today that they have activated defenseman/transition man Adam Bomberry from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

The second-year pro is expected to play on Saturday, as the Knighthawks host the Saskatchewan Rush at 7:30 p.m. at Connors & Ferris Field at The Blue Cross Arena.

“It will feel pretty good,” he said. “I have been hanging around with the boys for the last couple of weeks. It will feel great to throw the jersey on again.”

Bomberry was activated after Rochester placed defenseman Sid Smith on the injured reserve list. The 22-year-old now enters the season after a stellar rookie campaign in which he posted one goal, two assists and 33 loose balls in eight games. The Six Nations product was Rochester’s second-round selection (16th overall) in the 2015 NLL Entry Draft.

“We expect him to be better this season after getting eight games of experience last year,” said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. “He has taken his time coming back and getting himself physically ready. Now he is prepared to jump back into the lineup.”

Bomberry was drafted after completing two impressive seasons at Onondaga Community College (OCC). In 2015, he ranked fourth on the team with 57 ground balls and was named All-Conference by the Mid-State Athletic Conference, First Team All-Region and First-Team All-American by the NJCAA. Playing at OCC from 2014-15, he helped the Lazers to a 35-0 record, two National Championships, two Regional Championships, and two Conference titles.

In 2015, Bomberry was a member of the Iroquois Nationals team that took home the silver medal at the FIL World Indoor Lacrosse Championship. It was on the international stage that he raised his draft value, as he played against some of the top players in the world from the United States and Canada.

If his resume wasn’t impressive enough, Bomberry won back-to-back Minto Cups with the Six Nations Arrows (2014-15) and a Founders’ Cup with Akwesasne (2015). He also captured a bronze medal with the Iroquois Nationals at the 2014 FIL World Field Lacrosse Championship.

After missing the first five games of the 2017 season, Bomberry is ready to get back in the lineup and take another shot at a championship.

“I have been wanting to get back out there for a couple of weeks now. To finally get that chance is going to be pretty awesome,” he said. “There are a lot of new faces this year, but I think we are building some chemistry. I think we have a pretty good squad.”
