The 2022 NLL Expansion Draft saw the Las Vegas Desert Dogs make 14 selections and 4 trades, and now the reality of the NLL’s 14th expansion team is starting to set in. However, with that excitement comes the disappointment of losing a player to the expansion draft. This year, the Desert Dogs selected 24 year old defenseman Jack Suboch. The 6’5″ defenseman is coming off of his rookie season in Philly where he appeared in nine games, recorded two assists, and grabbed 25 loose balls for the Wings.
