Toronto Sends Jamison Dilks and 2nd Round Pick To Rush
Oakville, ON – Toronto Rock Owner, President, and GM Jamie Dawick today announced the acquisition of right-shooting forward Dan Lintner along with Saskatchewan’s fifth-round pick in the 2024 NLL Draft from the Rush in exchange for defender Jamison Dilks and the Rock’s second-round pick in the 2024 NLL Draft.
This will be Lintner’s second tour of duty with the Rock, having worn royal blue and red from 2015-16 to 2018-19. He was then selected by Rochester in the 2019 NLL Expansion Draft, played half the season with the Knighthawks but was dealt to Buffalo later in the 2019-20 season. Prior to the 2021-22 season, the Courtice, ON native was dealt to Saskatchewan where he enjoyed the two most productive seasons of his career, posting his top two career-highs for both goals and points.
Make no mistake, Dan Lintner is a finisher; a player that makes a living scoring goals within very close range to the opponent’s cage. With 48 goals over the past two seasons with the Rush, the 31-year-old brings a proven track record of goal-scoring prowess that adds even more depth to an already loaded Rock offence.
“Dan is another quality depth piece on the right-hand side,” said Dawick. “He’s an experienced vet, someone our staff is familiar with, and he knows what it takes to win. By bringing him in, it gives us some flexibility with Challen Rogers and where he slots into our lineup, so this is a perfect fit.”
Lintner’s addition comes on the heels of a recent trade that brought in another goal-scoring righty, Chris Boushy from Halifax. Along with superstar-shooter Tom Schreiber and sophomore Josh Dawick, the Rock’s right side is deep with talent and looks a lot different than a year ago.
“A lot of it is about finding the right pieces to play with Tom and our group up front,” explained Dawick. “We’re always trying to increase our talent level and depth. With this move, we’re a lot deeper and more talented up front, but in the end, it’s just about finding the right pieces to the puzzle. As it relates to Challen, he is the best all-around player in the game and this move gives us the flexibility to use him in all situations and that’s good for the Rock.”
