Jackson Goes First Overall In MSL Draft

The 2011 Minto Cup Champion Whitby Warriors had six graduating players drafted Saturday in the 2012 Major Series Lacrosse draft.  Mark Matthews and John Lafontaine were protected by the Brooklin Redmen prior to the draft (per league rules only 2 Junior affiliated graduating players are permitted to be protected).  Shayne Jackson went 1st overall, and was drafted by the Ajax Rock. With three of the next four picks in the first round, Brooklin drafted Nick Diachenko, Adrian Sorichetti, and goaltender Zack Higgins.  The Redmen also later drafted Steve Fryer, capturing both goaltenders from last season’s thrilling Minto Cup final. Orangeville’s Craig England went 3rd overall to the Rock as well.  Brampton’s Kyle Davis and Bulrington’s Josh Ruys rouned out the 1st round selections going to Ajax and Brooklin respectively.

The first round consisted of seven picks, Brooklin having a pick from the now defunct St. Regis team in a prior trade.  Some wheeling and dealing on draft day, along with trades in previous years allowed Brooklin and Ajax to own the first round. Four of the first seven picks were owned by the Redmen, with the Rock holding the other three.

LITG was there to capture all of the selections and trades and that list can be found here in an earlier post.

League Realingment

Other news for the meeting was a new setup for the league; consisting of two divisions.  There will now be an East and West division.  The East will consist of Peterborough, Ajax, and Brooklin, while the West will hold KW, Brampton, and Six Nations.  The teams will play a 14 game regular season.  A double home and home wil lbe played within the division, with a single home and home being played against teams in the other division.

All Star Game

The league will also play an All-Star Game in 2012.  Fittingly, the great fans in Peterborough will be entertained this coming Summer, seeing the best the MSL has to offer.  The 2011 Lakers will take the floor against the best of the rest of the league.  The game time and date is to be determined.  More info will be forthcoming.

2012 MSL Draft

Brooklin trades MSL rights to Glen Bryan to KW for KW’s 2012 1st round pick and 3rdd round pick in 2014.

Ajax trades their 2nd 2012 4th round pick to Six Nations for a player to be named later or future considerations.

Brooklin trades their 2012 5th round pick to Brampton for Brampton’s 2013 5th round pick.

2011 Mann Cup Poll

So it has been a little slow in the East since the completion of the Brampton – Peterborough series.  Seeing as the Mann Cup starts on Wednesday, let’s hear everyone’s thoughts on the winner and number of games.  Also, tell us who you think will be this year’s MVP.  The possible answers will be randomized so find the one you want.  Both polls below will run until next Monday, September 12.

Next, vote for who you believe will be the Mann Cup MVP.  If your player is not listed, feel free to comment him in under “Other”.

Brampton Heading West

The Brampton Excelsiors have booked themselves a date in the 2011 Mann Cup in Langley, British Columbia. Tonight the Excelsiors eliminated the 1st place Peterborough Lakers by a 9-7 final, taking the series in six games. Three of the Brampton wins came at the Memorial Center in Peterborough.

Zack Greer had a big night for the visitors, scoring two of his three goals on the night in the first period. His last goal in the third period was the eventual game winner. Mike Hominuck who played a great six game stretch in his own right was the playmaker tonight, tallying five assists.

The teams played a close game through the first period, tied at 3-3 after one. In the second the Lakers looked to take a 5-4 lead into the dressing room. However, Anthony Cosmo would hit Dan Dawson off the bench with only 46 seconds remaining in the period, and then Joe Resetarits, would put Brampton up by one, scoring with only 13 seconds left in the second frame. Resetarits rung one off the post and in behind Angus Goodleaf.

In the third, the two teams played almost half of the period before Geoff Snider would walk down the center of the floor and put a low shot past Cosmo to tie the game. But Brampton as they have done throughout the series would battle back and score three straight to take control of the game once again.

Tracey Kelusky would score a late goal to bring the Lakers to within one, but that was as close as they would get.

Peterborough outshot Brampton 55-40 on the night. Neither team scored on the Power Play with Brampton getting two opportunities, the Lakers getting three. The Lakers did have an extended five on three Power Play late in the first period, with three Excelsior players in the box, but could do nothing to capitalize on it.

The Excelsiors will now travel to Langley, to face the Thunder in the Mann Cup. Games start on Wednesday September 7th, and will be web cast from B.C. Check out www.theboxrocks.com or www.majorserieslacrosse.com for web cast details.
