On this week’s episode of New England Lacrosse Journal’s “Chasing The Goal” podcast, hosts Kyle Devitte and Jack Piatelli were joined by New York Riptide executive vice president Rich Lisk.
Lisk is in his third year with the NLL franchise. Previously, he oversaw the New England Black Wolves as their general manager in that league. The team reached the playoffs four times in a row while he was in charge, and Inside Lacrosse named Lisk its 2016 General Manager of the Year for his efforts.
Lisk also served as the president and GM of the Trenton Titans of the ECHL, a Philadelphia Flyers affiliate and the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League.
Most recently, Lisk oversaw the drafting of current Riptide star and former Cornell attackman Jeff Teat. Teat is currently leading the NLL in goals with 34 and is second overall in points with 74.
