The Canisius College men's lacrosse team will welcome some of the world's top players to the Demske Sports Complex when the Griffs host Dirty Lax in an exhibition contest on Sept. 29 at 4 p.m.

The Dirty Lax team features 17 NLL and MLL players, including seven 2012 all-stars from the two leagues. In addition, four former Canisius standouts are listed on the roster, highlighted by NLL Rookie of the Year Adam Jones '11. Dan Coates '11, Kevin Ross '07 and Simon Giourmetakis '12 are also featured on the team.

In addition to Jones, the six remaining all-stars from last season include Kevin Crowley, Cody Jamieson, Stephen Keogh, Jordan MacIntosh, Kyle Rubisch and Andrew Suitor.

The contest is set to center around the Griffs Alumni Weekend, which will include the awarding of the MAAC Championship rings to the 2012 title team and the presentation of the team's Ed Van Tine Award, which is given to a supporter of Griffs' lacrosse who has made a significant contribution to the program.

An autograph session will also follow the contest.

Tickets to the contest are $7 for adults and $5 for children. Fans can purchase tickets by calling (716) 888-2885 or visiting ticketmaster.

The 2013 Griffs return 21 letterwinners from the team that won the program's second MAAC Championship last season and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.
