Bennett currently plays collegiately for the Queen’s University of Charlotte Royals NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse team and spent last summer with the Edmonton Miners of the Rocky Mountain Junior A Lacrosse League, leading them to a Minto Cup finals berth.

‘Rocks General Manager Chris Welch believes Smith could be a stalwart on the defensive end for years to come:

“We couldn't be happier to add a player of Bennett Smith's calibre to our young lineup,” said Welch. “He's an elite player who was widely sought after and there's no doubt he has a very bright future in our sport. I know our fans are really going to appreciate what a special player he is and enjoy watching him play in the green and white for hopefully a long time to come.”

The Shamrocks 2023 season is set to begin on May 26 with a matchup against the Langley Thunder at the Q Centre in Colwood.
