Mammoth Makes Goaltender Change
The Colorado Mammoth announced today that the team has re-signed goaltender Dan Lewis (pending league approval), who split time during the 2012 season on the active roster and practice squad. Lewis replaces veteran goalie Chris Levis, who was released by the Mammoth earlier today, on the team’s 23-man roster.
“We need more consistent play from our back-end, and, in particular, our goaltenders,” said Mammoth president & general manager Steve Govett. “I’m grateful to Chris for his long-term commitment to our organization, but a change was needed. This is Dan’s opportunity to prove that he can be an impact player in the NLL.”
Lewis saw just 9:40 of action in his rookie season in 2012. The 23-year-old, British Columbia native was named IL Indoor’s 2010 Playoff Performer of the Year while playing for the Coquitlam Adanacs in Jr. A in Canada.
Levis has appeared in a limited role in all three Mammoth games this season, posting a 591 save percentage and an 18.92 goals-against average.
The Mammoth squares off against the Minnesota Swarm on Saturday, February 2 at 7pm MST on HealthONE Field at Pepsi Center on ‘Lacrosse Out Cancer’ Night. Single-game tickets start at just $10 and are on sale now at the Pepsi Center box office, all Colorado Dick’s Sporting Goods retail kiosks, online at TicketHorse.com, or by calling 303.53.HORSE.
