Toronto’s Five Draft Picks Agree To 1-Year Deals
Oakville, ON – The Toronto Rock drafted five players just over a month ago at the 2016 NLL Draft and Rock Owner, President and GM Jamie Dawick today announced the signing of each player to a one-year agreement.
Challen Rogers (1st Rd, 2nd overall), Latrell Harris (2nd Rd, 12th overall), Jordan Magnuson (3rd Rd, 24th overall), Jackson Hulbert (5th Rd, 42nd overall), Jamie McMahon (6th Rd, 50th overall) will hit the floor together when the Rock open training camp on November 26th with the same goal of cracking the 2017 Toronto Rock active roster and beginning their NLL careers.
“Collectively I’m happy to get the group signed and get set for training camp,” said Dawick. “I’m excited about the potential of this draft class, led by Challen and Latrell and what the future might hold for them. They will come into training camp along with the others and compete to earn a spot. I’m looking forward to the guys getting into town and showing us what they’ve got. The expectations are high for the group.”
The elite level pedigree of second overall pick Rogers headlines the group of picks but there is some legitimate depth to this draft class that will see all five players in the mix for roster spots. Harris might be the most intriguing of the bunch, as the 18-year was the youngest player selected in the 2016 NLL Draft from the St. Catharines Junior A Athletics. Magnuson was a defensive beast for the 2016 Minto Cup Champion Coquitlam Adanacs, Hulbert was a proven commodity at the Junior A level, while McMahon was the intelligent defensive leader of the Ontario Junior A champion Orangeville Northmen.
