The Roughnecks have acquired a first-round draft pick from Toronto in exchange for Nick Rose
The Calgary Roughnecks announced today that the team has traded goaltender Nick Rose and a conditional second-round selection in the 2014 NLL Entry Draft to the Toronto Rock in exchange for Toronto’s first-round pick in the 2014 NLL Entry Draft.
"As an organization we are committed to continuing to build our team through draft picks,” commented Calgary Roughnecks General Manager Mike Board. "Having three goalies made it difficult to provide necessary playing time to develop our younger talent. This trade allows us to commit to our starter, Mike Poulin, and rookie Frankie Scigliano heading down the stretch."
The Roughnecks acquired Rose in the first round (seventh overall) of the 2011 Boston Blazers Dispersal Draft. This season the Orangeville, Ontario, native, dressed for five games with Calgary and registered 17 saves in two relief appearances for a total of just over 32 minutes played.
