The Niagara Lock Monsters announced their 2014 roster today, which consists of 17 returning players from their very successful 2013 season.  Headlining the roster this year are goalie Connor Danko (2013 First Team All-Star, All-Rookie Team, Goalie of the Year), and two of the league’s top offensive threats, Corey Fowler (League Leading Scorer, Second Team All-Star, Most Outstanding Player, All-Rookie Team) and Andrew Potter (Top Offensive Player, First Team All-Star). The Lock Monsters feature a large Niagara contingent boasting 17 players that call the Niagara region home and 8 players who recently played on the Canadian Championship St. Catharines Saints team.

Four 2013 Entry Draft picks also cracked the roster including Dave DiRuscio (2nd Round, 6th overall), Tyler Carvalho (5thRound, 20th overall), Kyle Potter (9th Round, 36th overall), and Tim Bergin (10th Round, 40th overall).

Lock Monsters Head Coach and GM Jeff Dowling said, “I’m confident we can build on the success that we had last season.  With our returning players, there is a lot of unfinished business from 2013, and we’re focused on bringing the Creator’s Cup to Niagara.”
