Who is Michael Thompson?

Mike Thompson is a retired professional box lacrosse player. Thompson played seven seasons in the National Lacrosse League, six with the Buffalo Bandits.

He signed with the Bandits on August 18, 2006 to replace Ken Montour as back-up goalie to Steve Dietrich. Thompson took over the starting duties from Dietrich due to injuries during the 2007 season and played well enough to inevitably make Dietrich expendable after the season.

Ironically, in 2008 Thompson would team with Montour to form a two-headed goalie platoon for the Bandits leading to the franchise's fourth NLL Championship. Thompson would make 39 saves, including one as time expired, as he went the whole way in the 2008 Champion's Cup.

Thompson retired from the NLL following the 2012 NLL season.
