Denver - The National Lacrosse League's Chicago Shamrox franchise has suspended operations and the Colorado Mammoth has brought defenseman Brad Self back to the Mammoth with its first selection in the team's dispersal draft.

Self, who also plays professional hockey in Germany, scored a career high 29 points (5 goals, 24 assists) with Colorado in 2004. He has totaled 104 career points (41 g, 63 a), with eight goals and eight assists for the Shamrox last season. Self is a 5'11", 200 lb. resident of Toronto.
