Russ Heard’s lacrosse career spanned over 20 years in Jr. A, Western Lacrosse Association (WLA) and the National Lacrosse League (NLL). 

In the WLA, Heard scored more than 1,000 points, was a three time WLA scoring leader, and was twice selected as league MVP. In 1993 he set five WLA playoff scoring records including scoring six goals in one period.

In 2000, he won an NLL Champions Cup with the Toronto Rock. In 2013 the Burnaby Lakers retired his jersey—the first Laker to be so honoured. Heard was a head coach in the WLA for seven seasons and is an assistant coach with the Salmonbellies.
