CALGARY, AB – The Calgary Roughnecks today announced the National Lacrosse League club has re-signed forward Wesley Berg to a one-year contract.
Berg made his NLL debut last season after Calgary selected the 23-year-old forward in the first round, fourth overall, in the 2015 NLL Draft. He finished the 2016 campaign third in team scoring with 67 points, second among NLL rookies in goals (27) and led all first-year players in power play goals (9).
The Coquitlam, British Columbia, native played his collegiate career at the University of Denver where he won a national title in 2015 and was named the tournament’s MVP.
