National Lacrosse League's San Jose Stealth will move to Everett

After six seasons in San Jose, the team will begin play in 2010 at Everett's Comcast Arena.

After six seasons in San Jose, Calif., the Stealth professional indoor lacrosse team has announced its plans to relocate to Everett.

The Stealth, a member of the National Lacrosse League, is coming off a 2009 campaign in which it advanced to the West Division finals before being ousted by eventual NLL Champion, the Calgary Roughnecks.

The franchise will play at the Comcast Arena in Everett. The 8,300-seat arena is also home to the Western Hockey League's Everett Silvertips. The team's new name will be announced at a formal news conference in Everett next week.

"We are very excited about our move to the Comcast Arena at Everett and to introduce the region to the thrilling and fast-paced sport of professional indoor lacrosse," said Stealth owner Denise Watkins. "It is a wonderful opportunity for the franchise. There is a strong lacrosse community already present in Everett and the greater Seattle area. We look forward to becoming an active partner and helping to continue the growth of lacrosse with local high schools and clubs."

The National Lacrosse League is the premier professional league in the sport of lacrosse, and features the world's best lacrosse players. The 2010 season will begin in January, and will mark the league's 24th year of pro indoor lacrosse.
