With less than two weeks until the 2014 NLL regular season gets underway, the time is now for teams to submit their final rosters to the league office for opening day. Teams had up until Noon ET on Monday to submit their roster of 20 game players and four practice squad players which means fans will be anxiously awaiting to find out which players made the cut, and which were given their walking papers.
The back-to-back defending Champions Cup winning Rochester Knighthawks enter 2014 with championship expectations yet again, and will look to do it with familiar roster. Only two players didn’t return from last season’s squad as Mike Accursi and Pat McCready both chose to hang up their sticks after last year’s championship season.
The full Knighthawks roster can be found below. New additions to the team are italicized.
Forwards (7): Dan Dawson, Cody Jamieson, Stephen Keogh, Craig Point, Johnny Powless, Cory Vitarelli and Joe Walters.

Defensemen (9): Mac Allen, Tyler Burton, Scott Campbell, Paul Dawson, Dylan Evans, Mike Kirk, Ian Llord, Scott Self and Sid Smith.
