The Colorado Mammoth will be without star forward Casey Powell. The team has released a statement from Powell saying that he will be unable to play. It doesn’t say why or for how long, but from the tone of the message it sounds like he will miss the season. While there is no direct statement that there is a connection, Powell joins a wave of American NLL players who are not playing this year, in which the world field lacrosse championships are being held in Denver. Following is the statement that the Mammoth issued on Powell’s behalf.
“Due to recent circumstances in my personal affairs, I am unable to play for the Colorado Mammoth at this time. It is my sincerest hope that I will be able to return to the team in the future and help the organization win the Champion’s Cup. I appreciate the support of the franchise, my coaches and teammates, as well as the great fans of Colorado, and can’t wait until I’m able to get back to play again at Pepsi Center.”Stamp is a TV sports announcer and lacrosse lover whose skill set made him a defender but who always dreamed of being a goal-scorer.
