Self was acquired from the Buffalo Bandits in a trade for Alex Hill midway through last season, and made his debut in Rochester on March 16, 2013. The 34-year-old is in his 14th season in the National Lacrosse League after winning his first championship with the Knighthawks last year. "Im hopeful that – knock on wood – that I can finish my career in Rochester," Self said. "Its a good feeling that they still believe Im a big part of this team going forward." "Scotts a veteran leader and a solid defenseman," Knighthawks assistant coach Jason Johnson said. "Hes a good leader on the floor. Although he may not be as vocal as some of the others, he leads by the way he plays. Hes also an extra man that can take faceoffs, and if you watch him in practice, hes not a bad shooter either." Self is the latest member of the leagues top defence from 2013 to sign a long-term deal with the Knighthawks. Paul Dawson and Mike Kirk each agreed to four-year contracts, while goaltender Matt Vinc signed a five-year deal. Team captain Sid Smith inked a seven-year deal as well. "Scott is a steady force on the backend. Hes very quiet, but he does all of the little things right," said Kirk, an assistant capptain for the Knighthawks. Cheap Parker Ehinger Jersey. "When I first came into the league, I had the opportunity to learn from Selfer in Chicago. I can still learn from a guy like that and the rest of the team can learn from him because he does all of the little things so well." In addition, Selfs younger brother, Brad, re-signed with the Knighthawks for four years. "We built a really solid foundation with our defense back there and hes just another piece that fits in real well," said Selfs younger brother. "Hes obviously a guy who has a lot of experience. Hes been a captain for quite some time in Peterborough. Hes a pretty calming influence, a pretty relaxed guy. Hes a pretty competitive guy and hes really comfortable with the scheme." With contract negotiations now finished, Self can focus on his performance on the turf. He recovered six loose balls and forced a turnover in the season-opening win against Minnesota on December 28th. Through 190 career games, he has scored 43 goals and 124 assists while gathering 946 loose balls. Self is also a three-time All-Star. "I really like our defensive scheme," he said. "Its very, very simple. Were grateful to have a goalie like Matt Vinc too. We definitely give up shots, but we dictate where we give up the shots from, and Matts able to kind of gobble those up. Its a fun system to play in."
