The Buffalo Bandits were involved in two trades this past week with two different teams. Through these trades the Bandits were able to acquire a late-round 2019 draft pick and a player. These are the only two moves we have seen Buffalo make since trading away goalie Alex Buque last month.

On Wednesday Buffalo traded transition player Adam Will to San Diego in exchange for a sixth-round 2019 draft pick. Will was signed as a non-roster invitee before the Bandits training camp in 2015. Will would spend three seasons in Buffalo appearing in 15 games. Will would record seven points (2G,5A) during his time with Buffalo.

Saturday afternoon the Bandits announced that they had acquired transition player Ethan O'Connor via a trade from Georgia. In the trade Buffalo traded a third-round and fourth-round draft pick in 2021 for O'Connor.

O'Connor drafted ninth overall by Toronto in 2013 and played his rookie season there. O'Connor has played with the Swarm since 2015 when they were still in Minnesota. While with the Swarm O'Connor recorded 34 points (9G,25A) and 325 loose balls. He has played in 68 games with the Swarm.
