The Colorado Mammoth announced today that the team has acquired forward Drew Westervelt from the Philadelphia Wings. Westervelt, 28, is a dominant right-handed goal-scorer who has tallied 30-plus goals in four of the past five National Lacrosse League seasons. Colorado gave up two second-round selections in 2013, a first-round pick in 2015, and transition player Ryan Hotaling in the trade while securing a fourth-pick in Monday’s entry draft. “Drew’s a big, dominant, and strong offensive force in the NLL,” said Mammoth president & general manager Steve Govett. “He has adapted extremely well to the indoor game, and will have a major impact on our offense.” The Bel Air, Md., native graduated from the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC) in 2007 as one of the school’s all-time leading scorers. He has 164 goals and 138 assists in his six-year NLL career, all with Philadelphia.
