COLORADO ADDS DEPTH IN DRAFT-DAY TRADE
With the 2013 National Lacrosse Entry Draft just hours away, the Colorado Mammoth has secured the rights to second-year transition player Jackson Decker. The 23-year-old, who appeared in four games in his rookie season with the Calgary Roughnecks, was swapped for one of Colorado’s second-round picks in 2014.
“We continue to improve our team this off-season, with Drew [Westervelt] last week and now Jackson today,” said Mammoth president & general manager Steve Govett.
Decker, a native of Port Moody, British Columbia, is a Limestone College alumnus. The 6-foot-1, 194-pounder was a Division II national player of the year award winner in 2012.
The NLL Entry Draft begins this afternoon at 5pm MT. Colorado owns the third-overall selection.
