Wes Berg Player Profile – A Recap of the Seal’s Career

At 27, Wes Berg already has a number of championships under his belt. That’s why we’ve put together this Wes Berg player profile.

It started in 2010 with the Coquitlam Adanacs. Berg helped lead the team to a Minto Cup win, a first for the program. In 2011, he won the Bill Dickinson Trophy as the scoring champion (60 goals) of the British Columbia Junior A Lacrosse League.

Berg played college lacrosse at Denver University for Bill Tierney and had an illustrious career in Colorado. He was a key piece of the squad in all four of his seasons from 2012-2015, and in his sophomore and junior seasons, Berg was integral for Denver reaching back-to-back Final Fours.

In 2015, his senior year, Berg broke his own single-season scoring record in program history and led Denver to its first national championship. It was also the first time a school west of the Appalachian Mountains won a title.

He was drafted into the NLL (Calgary Roughnecks, No. 4 overall), MLL (Denver Outlaws, No. 15 overall) and MSL (Oakville Rock, No. 17 overall) in 2015, christening his professional lacrosse career. In Berg’s second season with the Outlaws in 2016, he won his first pro championship, chipping in to help Denver complete an unbelievable season of insane lows and even more insane highs. Earlier in 2016, he was named a finalist for NLL Rookie of the Year after ending the campaign with 67 points.

Berg has international experience, too, competing at the 2014 and 2018 World Lacrosse Championships with Team Canada, winning gold and silver medals at the tournaments, respectively.

Wes Berg’s player profile now includes the San Diego Seals as he was traded there in 2019. He left the MLL for the PLL when the traveling league launched and currently competes with the Waterdogs, his third team in two seasons following a trade – from Chrome to Redwoods – and an expansion draft selection to his present squad.
