Toronto – Toronto Rock General Manager Terry Sanderson has announced the signing of seven more players including goaltender Nick Rose to a three-year agreement. The Rock will open up their main training camp on Saturday, Nov. 30 at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre in Oakville.
Rose will enter his third season with the Rock in 2014 and has a 15-6 regular season won-lost record since being acquired from Calgary at the 2012 NLL trade deadline. The 25-year old led the NLL in wins in 2013 with 10 and had the third best goals-against average at 10.61.
"Nick is emerging as one of the elite goaltenders in our league," said Sanderson. "We are confident that Nick can give us the type of goaltending we need to be successful."
Toronto also signed two of their key offensive left-handers in forwards Josh Sanderson and Stephan Leblanc.
Sanderson, 36, has signed a one-year agreement and will be entering his 17th NLL season and 7th with the Rock in 2014. The Orangeville, Ontario native finished third on the team with 29 goals and was third in points with 62 in 2013.
Leblanc has signed a three-year agreement that will run through the 2016 season. He has played all four of his NLL seasons with the Rock and was the NLL rookie of the year in 2010. The 27-year old forward has accumulated 281 points in just 63 career regular season games.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Rock have signed Sandy Chapman and Jesse Gamble to two-year agreements and Bill Greer and Mike Lum-Walker to one-year agreements.
All of the above signings are pending league approval.
