The Calgary Roughnecks Lacrosse Club today announced its 21-player active roster and practice roster for the 2023-24 National Lacrosse League season.

The active roster includes 19 returning players and two off-season acquisitions, Thomas Hoggarth and Thomas Vela (from Rochester Knighthawks via trade).

“We had a very competitive camp and had some tough decisions to make, but we are excited to name this roster for the upcoming season and hope to get off to a good start this weekend in Rochester” said Roughnecks Head Coach Josh Sanderson. “The guys are ready to work hard, put in that strong effort that they have been all camp, and just keep that going for the regular season.”
