The San Diego Seals announced today that the team has re-signed its leading goal-scorer from the past season, Zack Greer, to a one-year contract.
“Zack was an offensive leader and a very important presence in our locker room last season,” said General Manager and Head Coach Patrick Merrill. “He carries himself the way every professional athlete should. He’s diligent off the field and backs it up on the field. He’s a winner! We’re excited to have him back for another year to help us in our quest for the 2022 NLL Championship.”
Greer recorded 21 goals, 29 assists and 50 points in his first year out of retirement, ranking second in points among Seals players. The lefty registered five games with five or more points, including an eight-point performance on March 7 vs. Rochester in what proved to be the team’s last game in a pandemic-shortened year. Greer’s 50-point season is his best since 2016 with the Rush.
“I couldn’t be happier to sign on for another year with the Seals,” said Greer. “I have incredible respect for the leadership team and am grateful for the opportunity to compete for this first-class organization. We were building something special, and it was disappointing to have it end the way it did. It’s a great group of guys in the locker room and we were just starting to find our rhythm, so I expect us to be dangerous. We have our minds set on bringing an NLL Championship to San Diego and look forward to the challenge.”
The team has also re-signed defenseman Mark Glicini. He appeared in five games for San Diego in his rookie campaign, recording 26 loose balls and five caused turnovers. Glicini signed with the Seals as a free agent ahead of the 2019-20 season. The defenseman played college lacrosse at Yale University where he was named a 2016 All-American short-stick defensive midfielder, 2016 first-team All-Ivy and won the Donald J. Reape Memorial Award for character, spirit, dedication, hard work and enthusiasm.
