TORONTO ROCK ANNOUNCE NEW 2008 SEASON SCHEDULE

The National Lacrosse League announced the new restructured 2008 season schedule today, which will now include an extra home game for the Rock, making it nine games played at the Air Canada Centre.

The new Rock schedule, still sixteen games, 9 home and 7 away, consists of only a few minor changes, mainly different opponents to accommodate some teams losing their arena dates. The expansion Boston Blazers have elected to begin in 2009, while the Arizona Sting will suspend operations for this season resulting in a player dispersal draft scheduled for next week. Both franchises will resume in 2009.

The Toronto Rock will kick off the new season on the road when they face the Chicago Shamrox on Saturday January 5th at 8:00 p.m. EST. The Rock will host their tenth home opener on Friday January 11th against the Minnesota Swarm at 7:30 p.m. as originally scheduled.

The extra home game added on April 26th will be recognized as the Jim Veltman retirement game and will give the team and fans a chance to celebrate and honour his career and last regular season game.

The NLL season will open on December 29th, 2007, when the Colorado Mammoth host the Calgary Roughnecks at Pepsi Center in Denver.
