Denver Outlaws attackman Eric Law

Outlaws claim Eric Law off waivers, reuniting with four-time All-Star

The Outlaws reunion Denver fans dreamed of is here. 

Denver claimed Eric Law off waivers Tuesday after the New York Atlas released the veteran attackman to the player pool. The 33-year-old played six seasons for the Outlaws during the franchise’s MLL era, leading Denver to three championships.

Law missed the start of this season due to an injury. After New York’s explosive offensive start, the Atlas decided to move on from their former captain. Denver, in need of an offensive spark due to injuries, added the four-time All-Star.

Attackmen Jack Myers and Logan Wisnauskas are both injured for Denver. Both impressed early in the season, but their absence has left a hole in the Outlaws' attack. Law should slide in at X and provide a stabilizing presence for a young offense that mustered just four goals last Friday in a blowout loss to the Atlas.  

Law is one of the best attackmen of the last decade. He’s scored 285 goals and made 142 assists over a 12-year career with the Outlaws and the Atlas. Law continued to produce into his 30s, scoring 22 goals with five assists for New York last season.

Law is the first player on Denver’s roster who played for the original Outlaws in the MLL. He’s also now the oldest player in Denver’s attack and the only offensive player on the roster in his 30s. 

The Outlaws have a veteran core to supplement a young roster, but most of that experience is concentrated on defense. Law provides another leader to mentor rookies Brennan O’Neill and Josh Zawada.

Law will compete for playing time with a bevy of young players like Zawada. Myers started the season at X, and Zawada, Cross Ferrara and Dylan Gergar have all played down low this season. 

With Myers on injured reserve, Law will likely play at X between O’Neill and Zawada at attack. He’ll be able to make his return to the Outlaws when Denver faces the Philadelphia Waterdogs on July 19 in Fairfield.
