What’s on the Tube?
The duo of Mitch Belisle and Ryan Boyle reverse roles this week as Boyle guides Mitch through some old NLL tapes. Remember, Mitch is a defenseman so if you’re coming for goals, see you later. It was the first year for the (now defunct) Boston Blazers and Belisle was one of five Americans on the squad. Coming out of his rookie season with the (also defunct) New York Titans, Belisle was a monster for Boston, racking up three goals, four assists and 104 looseballs in his sophomore campaign.
