Four Arena Lacrosse League West Division players have been promoted to the active rosters of their respective National Lacrosse League teams.
The Vancouver Warriors activated both Keegan Bell and Isaac Bot from their practice rosters while the Saskatchewan Rush and Colorado Mammoth moved Clark Walter and Nick Jensen to their respective active rosters ahead of this weekend’s NLL action.
The Warriors are facing the Colorado Mammoth on January 7 in Vancouver while the Rush are in Albany on January 8 for a date with the FireWolves.
“We are excited for this opportunity for the players and wish them all good luck with their respective National Lacrosse League squads,” said Ken Buchan, the commissioner for the Arena Lacrosse League West Division.
Bell – a transition player for the Sea Spray (2-1) — is tied for the West Division lead with two short-handed goals and has three goals and five points in a pair of games for his team.
Walter, a forward has played just one game for the ALL West Division-leading Grizzlies (3-0) but managed three goals and five points in that lone contest.
Bot and Jensen are both members of the Black Fish (0-3). Jensen has played in all three games, managing three goals and five points while Bot has played just a single ALL West game so far this season. Jensen is a defender while Bot is a transition player.
While those four are off with their NLL clubs, the rest of the ALL West Division is back in action for week 4 on January 8 as the Sea Spray face the Shooting Eagles at 1:00pm while the Black Fish battle the Grizzlies at 4:00pm. Both games are at Langley Events Centre.
