The Western Lacrosse Association’s Langley Thunder beefed up the offense last week by securing the transfer rights to some lethal snipers in Mark Matthews, Adam Jones and Jeremy Noble. Today, the news out of the WLA is that the Thunder swung a deal with the Coquitlam Adanacs that brings even more to the Thunder. Forward Dane Dobbie, goalie Nick Rose and defender Damon Edwards all are members of the Langley Thunder now after a trade that sent Brandon Goodwin and Matt MacGrotty to the Adanacs, along with a third-round draft pick in 2015. The Thunder announced the trade via Twitter, and The Province offers this closer look at the trade and how it might impact the WLA in terms of how chemistry. Coach Rod Jensen is set to return to the team following his suspension, and he’ll have an offense to balance that includes plenty of talented sticks.
