KANSAS CITY (January 27, 2021) – The Kansas City Comets announced today that the club has signed forward Mike DaSilva to one-year contract. Per team and league policies, terms of the contract were not disclosed. DaSilva is on loan from the Baltimore Blast, who have announced that they have suspended operations for the 2021 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

At 6’ 2” DaSilva, a Lagos, Nigeria native who moved to the United States in 2008, adds another big target to Coach Gibson’s frontline. While splitting time between the Orlando Seawolves and Blast last season, DaSilva played in 13 games, scoring five times.

“I am very excited to be a part of this great organization and to be coached by two veterans and legends of the indoor game,” said DaSilva. “I look forward to being in a Comets jersey and helping the team win any way that I can.”

DaSilva was a two-time High School All-American. Collegiately, DaSilva played for Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee, WI, for one year before deciding to turn pro at age 21, signing with the Milwaukee Wave.

“We are very excited to have such a young talent,” said Comets Head Coach, Leo Gibson. “Mike is going to be a tremendous help both offensively and defensively.”
