  • In Memoriam - We are saddened to announce the passing of Mike Kettles, a beloved member of the lacrosse community and devoted family man.  Michael was raised in Ladner, BC, where he played minor and intermediate lacrosse. He played his Jr. A career for the Burnaby Lakers and his Sr. A career for the New Westminster Salmonbellies. During his time with the Bellies, Mike helped them win two Mann Cups, and was part of the 1980's Salmonbellies teams recently inducted into the CLHOF, cementing his legacy as a champion.   Off the floor, Mike was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing.
