Kyle Rubisch (born August 29, 1988) is a professional lacrosse player for the Edmonton Rush in the National Lacrosse League and Hamilton Nationals in Major League Lacrosse.

College and Club career[edit]

Rubisch is a graduate from Dowling College. During his tenure there, he was named to the 2010 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) All-Star Team and was a First Team All American. He has also received several accolades with his hometown team, the Brampton Excelsiors of Major Series Lacrosse.

Professional career[edit]

Rubisch was a second round draft pick of the Boston Blazers in the 2010 NLL Entry Draft. In his rookie season Rubisch headed the Blazers defense recording a team-high 143 loose balls and 20 forced turnovers. Rubisch also netted his first NLL goal against Rochester on April 2. No surprise that after the season, Rubisch was named to NLL All-Rookie Team.[1]

In August 2011, the Blazers announced that they would be suspending operations, and a dispersal draft was held. Rubisch was picked second overall by the Edmonton Rush.[2] Rubisch was named the NLL Defensive Player of the year in 2012,[3] 2013,[4] and 2014.[5]

International career[edit]

Rubisch also represented Canada on the 2011 FIL World Indoor Lacrosse Championship in Prague. He helped his team to win gold medals and he was also named to tournament All-Star Team.
