In a trade with the Toronto Arrows, the Hounds received hooker Lindsey Stevens and in return, the Arrows received salary cap considerations for the 2023 MLR Season.
Stevens played with Houston in 2018, the first year of Major League Rugby. He appeared in seven games with 479 minutes played, scoring a try on the year. In 2020 he moved to New Orleans and appeared in three matches during the truncated season.
Stevens moved to Los Angeles prior to the 2021 season and appeared in six matches for the Giltinis before going down with injury. He scored two tries on his 33 carries while completing all 35 of his tackle attempts.
He returned to LA for the 2022 season and played in nine games with two starts. He added another three tries to his career total, taking it up to seven, while adding 96 meters gained on his 20 carries. He completed 40 tackles and had three breakdown steals on the season.
The Arrows selected Stevens, a capped Canadian international, in the MLR dispersal draft before trading him to Chicago. The hooker was born in Sydney to parents with American and Canadian heritage and he spent time in Texas throughout his childhood.
