There’s not much change to the lineup of the two-time defending Champions Cup champs. The Rochester Knigthhawks released their 20-man roster today and only two names appear on the squad that weren’t part of the team last year. Defender Mac Allen was signed as a restricted free agent from Colorado and goalie Mike Thompson takes the spot left open by Angus Goodleaf’s placement on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
The rest of the championship core is back in place, including captain Sid Smith and star forwards Dan Dawson and Cody Jamieson. Joel McCready and Brad Self are the only transition players listed on Rochester’s roster. Matt Vinc is back between the pipes as the Knighthawks look to become the first team to three-peat in NLL history.
Forwards (7): Dan Dawson, Cody Jamieson, Stephen Keogh, Craig Point, Johnny Powless, Cory Vitarelli and Joe Walters.
Transition (2): Joel McCready and Brad Self.
Defensemen (9): Mac Allen, Tyler Burton, Scott Campbell, Paul Dawson, Dylan Evans, Mike Kirk, Ian Llord, Scott Self and Sid Smith.
