Toronto – The Toronto Rock have re-signed four members of the 2011 squad that captured the NLL Champion’s Cup in May. Pat Campbell and Cam Woods have each agreed to two-year contracts while Glen Bryan and Rob Hellyer have each signed three-year contracts.
Pat Campbell served as the backup to Bob Watson last season in the first year of his second tour of duty with the Rock. Campbell and recently acquired Matt Roik are the two netminders currently under contract for the coming season.
12-year NLL veteran Cam Woods will return to the Rock for a fifth season as one of the anchors and leaders on the back end for the defending champs. Woods captured the first Champion’s Cup of his NLL career this past May with Toronto.
After being the Rock’s highest selection in the 2010 NLL Entry Draft defender Glen Bryan turned some heads with his defensive play in his rookie season in the NLL. He was also able to chip in at the offensive end of the floor in the NLL Championship Game as he scored on a breakaway to give the Rock a 1-0 lead. Bryan appeared in 9 regular season games scoring once and adding four assists. He played in each of Toronto’s 3 playoff contests.
Rob Hellyer, the youngest player in the NLL in 2011, was Toronto’s third pick in the 2010 draft as the Rock grabbed the offensive righty in the third round with the 30th overall selection. Hellyer made an immediate impact in his first NLL game with a goal against Philadelphia that was TSN’s Highlight of the Night as the Rock downed the Wings. After appearing in just 3 regular season games, Hellyer dressed for each of Toronto’s 3 playoff games scoring twice and collecting an assist.
Rock GM Terry Sanderson and his staff are presently preparing for the NLL Entry Draft which takes place on Wednesday, September 21 at the Don Valley Hotel in Toronto.
The Rock’s first selection in the draft is the fourth pick in the second round, 13th overall. The Rock currently own 7 picks in the 6-round draft, which is open to the public.
