The Colorado Mammoth have released four players, reducing their roster from 30 to 26, the team announced in a press release. Colorado has cut forward Carter Bender, transition player Dom Sebastiani and defenders Jarrett Park and Patrick O’Meara.
Bender came over from Buffalo as part of the trade for Rory Smith in the off-season. Buffalo took Bender with the 18th overall pick in the 2012 National Lacrosse League Entry Draft. He got into three games with the Bandits last year, scoring a goal and adding a pair of assists.
“We learned a lot this past weekend in Ontario,” said head coach Bob Hamley. “I appreciate everything that Jarett has contributed to the Mammoth for the betterment of the team for the past three years. I admire his effort, as well as that of Carter, Dom and Patrick.”
Park is a 31-year-old who has played 10 years in the NLL, scoring 62 points and scooping up 676 loose balls in 100 career games. Neither Sebastiani, a fifth-round pick in this year’s entry draft, nor O’Meara has played a game in the NLL.
