BOSTON, Mass. (Wednesday, June 6, 2012) – Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, announced Wednesday that twelve undrafted college seniors have been picked up by MLL teams through the league’s waiver wire process. Teams had the opportunity to place waiver claims on any college player not drafted in the 2012 MLL Collegiate Draft and who registered for the MLL Player Pool between May 31 and June 7.

The order of the waiver wire was determined by current standings; the eighth place team placed claims first, and so on.  The Denver Outlaws and the Boston Cannons did not elect to claim any player from the waiver wire.
