GOALIE BELANGER ADDED TO ACTIVE ROSTER, ROIK RELEASED
The Colorado Mammoth announced today that goaltender Tye Belanger has been added to the team’s 23-man Active Roster, pending league approval. He was on the Physically Unable to Perform List due to an off-season injury that he sustained that was unrelated to lacrosse. Goalie Matt Roik has been released.
“I am very confident in our young goaltending tandem, and I see them backstopping this team well into the future,” said Mammoth president & general manager Steve Govett.
Belanger, 22, played 21 minutes in 2012, stopping 15 of the 18 shots he faced. A second-round pick of the Mammoth’s in the 2011 NLL Entry Draft, Belanger was the Canadian Junior Goalie of the Year before being drafted.
Roik posted a 2-2 record with a .720 save percentage and a 13.66 goals-against average with Colorado this season.
