NLL Insider has learned that the Toronto Rock have released nine-year National Lacrosse League vet, Jason Crosbie, who spent the ‘09 season with the franchise after being signed as a free agent during last year’s off-season.

Crosbie posted 50-points in 15 regular season games for the Rock and had originally signed a two-year deal with Toronto, who recently dealt forwards Luke Wiles and Bill McGlone immediately after this past week’s Portland Lumberjax Dispersal Draft.

Previous to the ‘09 season, Crosbie was one of several players involved in a huge three team blockbester, that saw the former Rock forward dealt to the Philadelphia Wings, previously spending five years with the Buffalo Bandits, with a short lived stint with the Arizona Sting during the ‘06 season.

The current Clarington Green Gaels head coach is also a two time Mann Cup winner, winning the title in ‘00 with the Brooklin Redmen, and then again in ‘07 with the Peterborough Lakers.

Crosbie’s Gaels are currently strong favourites to win this yar OLA Jr. B title and Founders Cup, Clarington about to start a playoff series with the Mimico Mountaineers after easily dispatching the Nepean Knights in a series sweep to kick-off their post-season.
