Nick Menzies will be returning to the Vancouver Nighthawks for their second season.
The 5-foot-10 Menzies scored five goals and five assists and played strong defense as one of the primary disc handlers on the Nighthawks defensive line.
Menzies was awarded the MLU Offensive Play of the Week in Week 8 for a remarkable play he made with no time left on the clock at the end of the first half in a game at San Francisco. He blocked an opponent’s pass and then sprinted down the field to catch the disc in the opponent’s end zone for a goal.
There were concerns he might not be able to come back this season due to work commitments, but fortunately he was able to come to an agreement with his employers.
“Our D line is better with him on it,” commented Head Coach Andrew Lugsdin. “I think he brings an attitude that is otherwise sometimes lacking on our D line.”
