As a CBA has been agreed upon we are now starting to see more free agents sign that hadn't done so yet. One of the biggest signings of the offseason and one of the worst kept secrets in lacrosse has come to fruition. Veteran goalie Matt Vic has signed a 3-year deal with the Buffalo Bandits. 

Adding Vinc is a huge move for Buffalo as they needed stability at the goalie position. Last season Alex Buque was the main starter but Zach Higgins started the last game of the season. Buque has since been traded to New England

Vinc was a free agent after spending the last 8 years of his career in Rochester. The 13-year veteran is the most decorated goalie of all-time as he has won three championships and is the reigning Goaltender of the Year. The 2018 Goaltender of the Year was his sixth time wining the award. 

Vinc has played for a number of teams over his 13-year career so far. Vinc started in the league with San Jose after being drafted by them in the 2005 NLL draft. After his one year in San Jose Vinc player 4 seasons with the Titans in New York and Orlando. Vinc has played for the Rochester Knighthawks since the 2011 season. 

In his 13-year career Vinc has complied a 98-81 regular season record with a .782 save percentage. Vinc has a 19-10 postseason record with a .779 save percentage.
