Vancouver, B.C. – The Vancouver Warriors General Manager and Head Coach Curt Malawsky announced today that defenceman Owen Grant has signed a multi-year contract with the club.
“We are excited to have Owen signed for the next two years,” said Malawsky. “He will bring size, speed, and athleticism to the back end. We believe he really fits into the mould of what we are trying to accomplish in Vancouver.”
Grant, 23, appeared in 18 games with the University of Delaware Blue Hens in 2023, collecting ten points (7-3-10) and 57 ground balls, while setting the program record for most caused turnovers in a season (38). He was named the CAA’s Defensive Player of the Year for the third year in a row, becoming the first player in conference history to achieve this milestone. Grant also became the first player in Blue Hens history to cause 100 turnovers in a career and was named to the First-Team All-CAA for the third consecutive season.
Prior to beginning his college career, Grant was drafted seventh overall to the Toronto Beaches of the Ontario Junior A Lacrosse League (OJLL). During his rookie season in 2017, he accumulated 14 points (9-5-14) in 20 games played and was named Toronto Beaches Rookie of the Year.
On the international stage, Grant was selected to represent the silver medal winning Team Canada in the 2023 World Lacrosse Men’s Championship. The 6’3”, 215-pound left-handed defenceman currently plays for Redwoods in the Premier Lacrosse League.
A native of Newmarket, Ontario, Grant was originally selected by Vancouver in the first round, third overall in the 2022 NLL Entry Draft.
