NLL: Toronto Rock Final Roster

TorontoRockMastheadWith 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, down from 23 under the old collective bargaining agreement, and four practice squad players. So which players made the final cut for the Toronto Rock, and which were given their walking papers?

Gone are forward Brenden Thenhaus, defenseman Mike Woods and goaltender Craig Wende. Into the fold on the active roster are just two new faces, Craig England and Ethan O’Connor, who are expected to come in and help secure the defensive end of a team that couldn’t keep opponents off the board last season.

The full Rock roster can be found below. New additions to the team are italicized.

Forwards (6): Kasey Beirnes, Garrett Billings, Colin Doyle, Rob Hellyer, Stephan Leblanc and Josh Sanderson

Transition (3): Kyle Belton, Craig England and Jesse Gamble

Defensemen (9): Sandy Chapman, Damon Edwards, Bill Greer, Stephen Hoar, Scott Johnston, Rob Marshall, Patrick Merrill, Ethan O’Connor and Chris White

Goaltenders (2): Zak Boychuk and Nick Rose

Practice Squad: Dustin Dunn (D), Eric Law (F), Mike Lum-Walker (D) and Jeff Swift (F)
