After helping the Canisius College men's lacrosse team win the 2012 MAAC Championship, Simon Giourmetakis is set to continue his career in the National Lacrosse League. Giourmetakis was drafted in the fourth round (33rd overall) of the NLL Draft on Monday night.

The fourth player in the program's history to garner first-team All-MAAC honors twice, Giourmetakis ranks 14th in the Griffs' record book in both career points (114) and career goals (77) plus 13th in career assists (37).

The Edmonton, Alberta native finished his career in style at Canisius, helping lead the Griffs to their second conference title in 2012. Giourmetakis led Canisius with 47 points and 34 goals as a senior, ranking first in the MAAC and 17th nationally with 2.43 goals per game.

Giourmetakis joins a long list of Canisius graduates to be drafted by an NLL team. Last season, six former Griffs played in the league, highlighted by Rookie of the Year and Western Conference All-Star Adam Jones.
