Benn was selected in the fourth round and was the 33rd pick overall. He is a right shooting forward whose greatest indoor success came in 2012 as a member of the Minto Cup Canadian Junior A champion Orangeville Northmen.
Benn played attack for CMA before moving on to Johns Hopkins University, where he became one of the leading scorers in that program’s storied history. He led the Blue Jays in scoring his junior year, averaging 2.62 goals per game. He was selected by the Chesapeake Bayhawks in the 2014 Major League Lacrosse draft this spring and played in six games during the summer.
Toronto is Benn’s hometown NLL team. He lives less than 30 minutes away from the Rock’s practice facilities. Benn will be trying to crack a veteran-laden Rock roster that includes several off-season additions made ahead of the September draft.
