October 5, 2012 - National Lacrosse League (NLL) - Colorado Mammoth
DENVER - Colorado Mammoth president & general manager Steve Govett announced today that the franchise has signed five players, three of which played for the team in 2012: forward Jamie Lincoln, transition player Scott Stewart, and goaltender Dan Lewis. Forward Joel Dalgarno missed the 2012 season after playing for the Mammoth in 2011, and defenseman Ian Poole was an unrestricted free agent.
"Training camp is quickly approaching," said Govett. "Getting these players signed was a top priority of ours."
Lincoln made an immediate impact in his rookie season in the National Lacrosse League in 2012. He finished third on the team in goals, behind only NLL MVP John Grant Jr. and NLL Rookie of the Year Adam Jones. His 27 tallies were also the third-most of any first-year player in the league.
Stewart scored five goals and won 39% of his face-offs in 10 games played in his first season with Colorado. Lewis shared time between the active roster and the team's practice squad in his rookie campaign.
Dalgarno was a trade-deadline acquisition by the Mammoth in 2011, and recorded 12 goals and 10 assists in seven games. He missed the 2012 season due to personal commitments, but returns to an offense that led the NLL in scoring in his absence.
Poole, 30, is known as a relentless defender. He was the Western Lacrosse Association's Unsung Hero Award winner for his play with the Langley Thunder this summer.
