- The AUDL’s Seattle Raptors signed Grant Zukowski, who played last year for the Windy City Wildfire.

- The MLU’s DC Current signed Peter Prial, who played last year with the Whitecaps. He has relocated to Washington, D.C. for graduate school.

    Does the MLU really think it’s interesting to anyone that teams are resigning their old players? It’s interesting when people switch teams, or leagues, or you sign some brand new studs, not when the people everyone expected to play again come back to the same team.
