Kevin Alexander in action!!

Kevin Alexander

Kevin Alexander has been described as the "Gretzky of the lacrosse floor." His prowess with the stick was phenomenal and his astronomical scoring feats throughout his career were instrumental in leading teams that he played for to championships. In his last two years as a junior he led the Victoria McDonald's to the 1976 Minto Cup Junior Canadian championship. He amassed 204 points in 28 games in 1975 and 217 points in 28 games in 1976. His senior career in the Western Lacrosse Association ran from 1977 to 1986, eight of which he played with the Victoria Payless. In exactly 300 games his tally was 797 goals and 584 assists. It is clear that had he enjoyed a longer career his stats would be incomparable. Alexander was a skilled player with an instinctive understanding of the game. His combination of speed and insight made him nearly impossible to stop once he was close to the net. His greatest moments in lacrosse came with his Minto Cup championship as a junior and leading his team to win the Mann Cup in 1979 and 1983. In 1986 he was named the best midfielder at the world field lacrosse championships, which are held every four years, and he was named to the All World team.
