As the Washington Stealth get set to play the Rochester Knighthawks in the this Saturday’s National Lacrosse League championship game, two of the team’s stars were honored by league.

Forward Rhys Duch was been named a first-team All-Pro and defenseman Mike Grimes was named a second-team All-Pro on Tuesday.

In the regular season, Duch led the NLL in goals with 45 and finished third in points with 96. Duch was previously named an All-Pro in 2010 and 2011 – the Stealth advanced to the championship game in both of those seasons as well.
